Use of social media by financial services professionals continues to grow. LinkedIn leads the way with nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of respondents now permitting its use.

Smarsh®, a leading provider of hosted archiving and compliance solutions for email and electronic communications, recently released its third annual Electronic Communications Compliance Survey Report at FINRA’s 2013 Annual Conference. While challenges surrounding the oversight and retention of electronic communications remain widespread, this year’s study reveals that compliance professionals in financial services are more comfortable with the “new normal” of greater regulatory scrutiny, evolving communications tools and more complexity in the demands around email surveillance.

“This year’s survey results illustrate how compliance is adjusting to meet the challenges presented by social media and mobile devices,” said Stephen Marsh, CEO and founder of Smarsh. “As professionals move past the initial fear and uncertainty and become more familiar with the day-to-day practical issues associated with handling oversight of these channels and devices, confidence is growing in their ability to meet their compliance obligations.”
