Surety Releases Results of Email Security and Authentication Survey

May 20, 2008

Surety announced today the results of its 2008 Email Security and Authentication Survey. After surveying more than 800 IT security, email security and compliance professionals, the research suggests that 65 percent of them lack confidence that their organization’s email records would be admitted as authenticated evidence in legal settings.

The survey further revealed that more than 80 percent of respondents are concerned about their ability to authenticate email records and attachments and more than 50 percent of respondents remain unclear on new regulations and legal expectations related to email authentication.

“During a time when courts have set forth clear expectations for the authentication of electronically stored information (ESI), including email, it is troubling to learn that nearly half of IT professionals responsible for preserving email records are not fully aware of these requirements,” said Timothy Carroll, Partner, Vedder Price P.C. “These findings underscore why so many organizations are turning to content security solutions such as trusted time-stamping to preserve the integrity of their electronic records throughout the chain of custody.”
