“Ever since email first entered the White House, Presidential administrations have used the ‘I lost my email’ excuse to evade all sorts of controversies,” said Kevin Weiss, Unitrends’ president and chief executive officer. “But, in the modern age, losing email is completely inexcusable. Continuity solutions are increasingly designed to preserve emails more rigorously, and it is disappointing that government officials continue to hide behind technology. These excuses have completely lost their bite.”

This excuse is as old as email itself in the White House, and every email-enabled administration has used it through the present day. However, with the advent of stronger email acceptable-use policies and the evolution of increasingly reliable backup and recovery technology, this defense has lost its effectiveness – and as a result, we now see purportedly “lost” emails being recovered by government information technology (IT) workers, or officials avoiding the use of government IT infrastructure altogether in favor of private accounts.
