In May of this year, DSA Connect was quoted in a Reuters article on how some companies are
changing their procedures to prevent financial crime during the COVID-19 crisis pandemic.
The article touched on the issue of companies archiving data and our Chairman Harry Benham
commented on the importance of doing this properly so that any data that is deleted is kept in its
original form in case a regulatory body later raises questions about it was used.
He also warned that now is not the right time for companies to start changing their strategies for the
deletion of their data.
