Social media giving you an IT headache?

Social media can give IT professionals a headache if the organization is not properly prepared to deal with each of the new government regulations requiring monitoring, logging, retaining and disclosure of their employee's relevant communications.

But in this era of compliance and litigation, the cloud's allure can be a Siren's song.

For example, when a business loads its data into the cloud, it could reside anywhere—in another state or another country. If that business becomes embroiled in a lawsuit and needs to access that data to comply with an electronic discovery order, will the laws in the location where its data is located interfere with compliance?
