Energy & Utilities
Enabling Security and Compliance for Energy & Utilities Firms
The energy industry - oil companies, electrical power producers, transmission companies, energy traders and others - are subject to a wide variety of regulations focused on monitoring communications between employees, logging content to ensure compliance, archiving content for long periods, and protecting their critical assets from cyberattack. In addition, the use of new communications tools like Twitter and Facebook create additional complications and new opportunities for energy-related companies to run afoul of their regulatory obligations.
Keeping the world’s energy infrastructures running smoothly depends on instant access to communication, collaboration, and social networks. Make decisions faster and keep customers happy - all with the compliance your business requires.
Instant messaging (IM) is how energy traders authorize and execute energy trades. That’s a big reason why energy and utility firms are subject to a wide range of industry and regulatory policies that require IM chats to be logged and archived. However, IMing alone doesn’t keep the lights on or engines running. It takes all the communications, collaboration, and social networking tools available to do the job faster and more reliably.
