Team collaboration tools like Slack have largely replaced email when it comes to internal communications within many organizations.

This has profound implications for legal and compliance teams who need to monitor and manage all data on Slack. Like email and other modern data sources, Slack content has to be accessible to ensure regulatory compliance and litigation readiness.

This white paper examines:

  • The legal and compliance challenges that Slack presents
  • The demands that Slack data places on legal and compliance teams
  • Real-world examples of how teams can collect and preserve Slack data
  • Effective strategies for mitigating the legal and compliance risks of Slack
