Why does email archiving matter in terms of legal and statutory requirements?

Solid email retention records are important for every business. The relevance of email archiving impacts businesses way beyond data privacy regulations such as the EU’s GDPR. Above and beyond national regulations, regulated industries need to take specific requirements into account when managing their email communication. What is more, companies may issue specific email governance policies which can impact email management, and not only for the IT department. Beyond that, electronic discovery of emails – in short, eDiscovery – may play a vital role for the legal department. Depending on the country and industry, emails can play an important role in litigation. A properly kept email archive can help minimize legal risks.
