With extensive experience in corporate governance and financial management, Evizone’s founder and Chairman Bill Wells has been involved in some tough instances of contested governance as well as numerous legal and regulatory processes These experiences caused him to found Evizone. He was impressed with the critical importance of reliable, secure electronic communications and communications governance systems and the extreme risk of not having them.
Instances of reputations destroyed, organizations derailed and millions upon millions of costs caused by improperly handled electronic communications are numerous and increasing in frequency. It is one of the largest risks faced by many organizations and one of the least addressed. Says Wells, “Email and other commonly used messaging systems, even if encrypted, are all inherently insecure and cannot be made secure.
Many people are careless and use these systems for confidential information that should never be in them. Some are also pack rats and tend to use their email and messaging as a filing system, ignoring document retention policies. Others delete everything, causing severe problems when matters arise requiring an official record. In most organizations it is a complete mess, creating enormous risk. My goal is for Evizone to bring order from chaos and to be a key risk management tool for the enterprise.”
