Smarsh Annual Electronic Communications Compliance Survey Report

For compliance professionals who want to find out how their peers meet regulatory responsibilities related to the retention and oversight of electronic communications (including social media, instant messages and SMS/text messages) the annual Smarsh Electronic Communications Compliance Survey Report has become a trusted source of information and statistics for the global financial services community.

Every year, the annual Smarsh Electronic Communications Compliance Survey illustrates the key trends and concerns facing compliance around the retention and oversight of electronic communications. 2017 will mark the seventh consecutive year Smarsh is distributing this survey.

The insights gleaned from the report are particularly helpful now, since the industry continues to experience increased regulatory scrutiny, while firms have also had to rapidly adapt to new communication channels. Survey finding from previous years have revealed that supervision practices do not sufficiently address the compliance implications of these ongoing trends. Firms face difficulties to correctly identify and mitigate compliance risks in electronic communications.
