I have just recieved an email from a client who used Information Rights Management in Outlook that made sure I couldn’t Copy, Print or Forward the contents to anyone else .
It’s not that he didn’t trust me (really it wasn’t) it’s just that it was easier to use IRM as CYA – send and not worry – ass is covered.
It has been amazing to me how despite being available for several years now and despite all the Security, SOX and Basel issues floating around, the technology in IRM hasn’t been pushed a whole lot harder as a selling point for using MS Office (?)…
You cannot say it’s because it’s not sexy because covering your ass and keeping your job sounds about as sexy as anything I can think of in today’s world.
What a shame.
