Smarsh Seeks Input for Fourth Annual Electronic Communications Compliance Survey

PORTLAND, Ore. --(Business Wire)--

Smarsh®, the leading provider of hosted archiving and compliance solutions for email and electronic communications, is conducting its fourth annual survey of compliance professionals in the financial services industry on the retention and oversight of electronic communications, including email, social media and instant messaging. Findings from the survey will shed light on the compliance community's concerns and best practices in meeting the electronic recordkeeping, supervision and data protection obligations mandated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC (News - Alert)), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and other global regulators.

"Results from last year's survey illustrated that compliance professionals are more comfortable and familiar with the practical realities of conducting supervision on newer forms of electronic communication, like social media," said Stephen Marsh, CEO and founder of Smarsh. "As firms look to connect with customers in new and innovative ways, regulators' requests are becoming more sophisticated. We expect this year's survey to provide compliance officers with valuable insight into how their peers are navigating this evolving landscape."

Compliance professionals are encouraged to take the survey at For each qualified registrant, Smarsh will make a charitable contribution via Smarsh Full Circle, the company's community service initiative.

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, and all answers remain anonymous and will only be analyzed in aggregate. A report of the key findings from the survey will be issued by Smarsh in spring 2014. The 2013 Electronic Communications Compliance Survey Report is available at
