The Self-Destructing Message:

The Information Governance Challenge of Ephemeral Messaging

Presented by

Sheila Taylor, CIP, CRM, IGP

Key Discussion Points: 

  • Ephemeral Messaging
  • Benefits
  • Risks
  • Regulations

Summary of Topic: 

Ephemeral messaging applications like Confide, SnapChat, and Telegram are designed to automatically delete messages from all devices (sender and recipient(s)) after they have been read or after a pre-set, and very brief, period of time.  The increasing use of ephemeral messaging to conduct business creates many information governance challenges.  

Join Sheila as she discusses the business benefits and risks of ephemeral messaging and the emerging regulation of this communication technology.  Sheila will also provide guidelines and tips for governing ephemeral messages.
