The Surprising Irony at the Intersection of Compliance and Social APIs
The Cambridge Analytica scandal brought further scrutiny regarding the access that companies have to data and how that access impacts their users. The nature of the breach, and the political follow-through, brought privacy debates to a head at a global level. The response of leading web apps and social platforms has been to suspend or in some cases fully deprecate access to data through APIs. So, while many companies worldwide were combing their resources and racing to comply with GDPR directives, others were scrambling to pick up the pieces of any system that relied on the data that a now ineffective API previously offered.
In the intersection of these two events there sits a brutal, often overlooked irony. Compliance leaders across the globe use various monitoring technologies to maintain regulatory compliance and ensure communication integrity for the benefit of consumers. For example, FINRA and SEC recordkeeping requirements outline a firm’s responsibilities to archive web and social communications to prove aboveboard communication. The irony? Many of these firms are relying solely on API based tools to capture and archive web content.
What do organizations do when the need to record web content collides with an API landscape that is challenging, at best? Is it time for a different kind of archiving?
