There’s no doubt that a tool like Slack can improve communication and collaboration within a company—but it also introduces certain legal and compliance risks. Just ask luggage company Away.
Web archiving is simply the act of collecting and preserving websites in an archive. It's the best way to capture website content in an immutable and time-stamped form that facilitates compliance, litigation, and overall information governance.
Back in June, Pagefreezer’s CEO Michael Riedijk posted our Stance on Racism. In that post we made the following promises:
Digital content (like web pages, Facebook posts, and tweets) is increasingly being submitted as evidence during legal matters—but it isn’t always being admitted by courts. As with any other form of evidence, digital evidence needs to meet a certain standard in order to be deemed admissible—and in many cases this comes down to how the evidence was collected and authenticated. If the collection and authentication process wasn’t handled correctly—and the method employed didn’t prove authenticity beyond any reasonable doubt—the evidence typically would not be accepted.
In a previous article, we discussed why hash values are crucial in evidence collection and digital forensics. Following on from that, it’s worth discussing why Pagefreezer specifically makes use of the SHA-256 hashing algorithm when applying a digital signature to one of our records.
Traditionally, proving the authenticity of a piece of digital evidence could be tricky, especially if opposing counsel was determined to keep it out of evidence. Legal teams would have no other option than to spend significant time and resources on providing a sponsoring witness who could testify to the authenticity.
We’ve mentioned before how important information governance is. However, with the sudden shift to remote work caused by COVID-19, having thorough systems and processes in place to manage information has proven more important than ever.
2020 has undoubtedly been a tough year, with government social media use having higher stakes than ever before. Yet, despite all the challenges, most government organizations continue to do great work on social media—leveraging social platforms to not only provide crucial information and help citizens deal with current issues, but also shine a spotlight on actions and events that are worthy of celebration.
As with other social media platforms, like Facebook and Instagram, compliance and legal professionals often need to archive a Twitter account for official use.
Statement from Pagefreezer CEO Michael Riedijk. Over the last weeks, I have closely followed the Black Lives Matter protests motivated by the deaths of George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Michael Brown, and so many other Black Americans who are victims of systemic and institutionalized racism. The movement has quickly expanded to the UK, Europe and globally, exemplifying its importance and how widespread this problem is.
