New email regulations

Filed under: News — @ 10:35 AM

From mid-March new rules come into effect, meaning records of all emails sent or received have to be kept for a year. The ISPs will have to store the information, though there may be some informal leeway for small companies.

I can see a few problems with this though. Firstly there’s the usual problem of keeping personal information safe, this is obviously a problem from the number of slips recently. Then there’s the cost of implementing the new rules and then enforcing them. With the ‘informal’ leeway that has been suggested this could be difficult for companies to be sure they are meeting the new requirements!
