Police in News of the World email investigation

DMandPenfold (1108673) writes "Police are questioning whether a change in News International’s email retention policy was part of an effort to conceal widespread phone hacking by the News of the World, a scandal which is threatening Rupert Murdoch’s planned takeover of BSkyB.

The trawl for emails and the questioning of changes in News International’s email retention policy has important implications for IT security and corporate governance professioals, and is likely to see organisations examining their own policies and reminding their staff on acceptable usage and best practice for email."
