E-mail Security has become a highlighted topic in many advanced countries around the world:

1. In 2002, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of the United States ruled that organizations must keep their department-related electronic files in storage for at least five years. This includes electronic mails.
2. Specialized and medical industries in the US are subject to an even stricter rule which requires that they keep their mails in backup for at least six years. Related topics can be found in HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).
3. Finance and accounting departments need to comply with the SEC 17 CFR Part 210 law which requires them to keep their mail archives for at least seven years.
4. In Japan, the "Personal Intelligence Protection" act of 2005 states that organizations have the responsibility to protect their users' private data from being externally exposed.
5. Japan plans to pass a policy in 2007~2008 similar to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of the US.
6. Taiwan's parliament is planning to pass a new law requiring the finance ministry to enforce the "New Basel Capital Accord" on companies in the financial sector. This accord stipulates that companies must have a working mechanism to backup and audit their IT data.
