    Smile SMS Logs need to be deleted

    Advertisement



    Can someone assist with my issue. I have some VP's who SMS'd some things they shouldn't have and I am in charge of cleaning the trail. My first order of business will be to disable sms logging. Second will be deleting the log file. What services do I need to stop in order to delete this log file? I am on a BES 4.1.

    Before you clean the trail up, I'd consult counsel. With the Sarbanes-Oxley Act anything deleted might be grounds for legal action. Just my $.02. Good luck!

    Agree with Delise, SOX has some severe penalties for deleting required logging. And if you turn off SMS logging, you might just have to turn off SMS capability also.

    SOX Compliancy is very clear. You must maintain ALL electronic communication data. If you delete this, you can get into very serious compliancy infraction issues as well as potentially breaking the law. As an FYI, BB messenger can also be logged on the BES. Google sms archiving and Gwava.

    It was confirmed to me by someone at RIM that the BES can also log "enterprise IM" like IBM's Lotus Sametime, Microsoft's Live Communications Server systems etc.

    Think about it, if IM couldn't be logged then companies would not be compliant with SOX.
    No public company in their right mind would use IM without archiving capabilities.
