Sunshine Technology Seminar

October 14th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

The Attorney Generals office conducted a seminar for state agencies on how to preserve public records in new media and technology. The need came to light when it was disclosed that BlackBerry PIN numbers had been given to utility lobbyists. Deputy Attorney General Joe Jacquot says determining if something is public requires being able to save the material.

“The goal is to look at technology, the blackberry pins, to look at voice over IP, instant messaging, Twitter, Facebook, and figure out how can agencies retain those messages and look at them and see if they are indeed public records,” Jacquot said.

An investigation by the Department of Law Enforcement has concluded that no criminal laws were broken when the PSC Pin numbers were given to the utility.
