EIE Legal is an encrypted messaging app specifically designed to meet the needs of government entities and ease compliance with FOIA, Open Meetings Act or Sunshine regulations. EIE Legal provides complete privacy and gives users an efficient, encrypted means of communication with staff and colleagues. And, because the app functions just like the texting and email platforms users are already familiar with, transitioning to EIE Legal is quick and seamless.
As governments contend with the challenges of keeping information safe from hackers, they must simultaneously comply with state and local transparency laws that require them to make records of communications available to the public. Those messaging apps that don’t create an archived record of conversations create more work when responding to public-records requests and leave government entities vulnerable to complaints and lawsuits. Public servants need to find a safe, efficient mode of communication that protects their conversations from bad actors but also allows them to produce documents in compliance with the Freedom of Information Act when necessary.
A platform like Encrypted Information Exchange provides public officials not only with end-to-end encryption but also a full archive of all conversations and documents, making sure your communications are always secure, always transparent, and always recorded. That means your team can communicate securely without running afoul state transparency laws.
