The Sedona Conference and its Working Group 6 on International Electronic Information Management, Discovery, and Disclosure (WG6) are pleased to announce that The Sedona Conference Commentary on Ephemeral Messaging (“Commentary”) has been published.
The Commentary defines the nature and scope of ephemeral messaging and provides a detailed sketch of the tension and competing demands facing organizations – particularly organizations seeking to use ephemeral messaging to comply with cross-border data protection directives without violating other legal requirements – that wish to use these tools. The Commentary also includes a series of guidelines that provide direction to organizations on how to navigate the landscape of uncertainty surrounding the use of ephemeral messaging. The guidelines also offer recommendations to regulators and judges for evaluating good faith uses of corporate ephemeral messaging.
