As a company or organization, you have a legal requirement to retain information and communication. Studies show that most employees have no idea what these policies are, and chances are, neither do you. Read the full article to see what the actual statistics are.
These policies should not only include what to retain and for how long, but also your company’s policies on personal computer usage, personal emails, and social media. Not only can these issues pose problems for the company and its data retention, but it can also pose privacy problems of which most employees are not aware.
Don’t forget, if you’re using your company’s WiFi on your personal device, that data is not private and your company now has access to it. Likewise, when you use your company email to contact your doctor, financial advisor, or lawyer, your private information is now the property of your company.
