Skills Inventory Is Side Benefit of Internal Mail Monitoring

Increasingly, organizations monitor the flow of internal email communications among functional groups, divisions, and international sites to detect noncompliant content and proprietary information breaches.

A side benefit of monitoring is finding out what the employees know about a particular subject, product, or technology. This knowledge can then be rolled into a skills database, creating a much more current and granular view of the human resources within the organization. The information gleaned can also feed contact and calendar information to help in locating the closest person with the needed skills.

One of the first content control vendors to recognize this benefit is Vericept. Vericept's 360 Risk Management Platform combines three applications - Content 360, Email Control, and Stored Data Discovery - to monitor, detect, and analyze internal and external communications.
