DOJ Rolls Back Ban On Disappearing Messages

The U.S. Department of Justice has taken yet another step to ease corporate compliance in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act cases. The Department has lifted the requirement for companies to prohibit employees from using disappearing messaging services like WhatsApp in order to receive full credit for remediation, reports Law360.

Institute for Legal Reform Chief Operating Officer Harold Kim praised the move, telling Law360 in an interview that the new policy “really reflects the acceleration of technology and will give companies more ability to craft their compliance programs, pursue policies that are risk-based and balance the need to retain business records with the realities of how things are done in a business setting, whether in the U.S. or globally.”
