Are private temporary emails a risk for government?
For people who are involving in government businesses using temporary email address in business is legal in Texas. In Texas, A&M Univeresity that have 6 investigations about emails sent and received by A&M University. People judged Hillary Clinton for managing her private email in government business and that had an impact on election. However, using private emails are still legal in Texas.
So this means, a council member, a secretary of state may receive or send an email through in temporary email address and it is up to him/her to what to do with that. It can be a sabotage or deleting completely, none will know whats gonna do with that, because of low security observations, or maybe a recording of government conversations between other governments. Pretty much illegal actions may occur without notice.
Bill Aleshire, Austin attorney and open government advocate says Texas lawmakers should make illegal of employing temp mail in official business. Despite that State Rep. J.M. Lozano (R-Kingsville) reveals most of the lawmakers in Texas do not use their personal email addresses in official business because they afraid of the prosecution for using private temporary email in official business as they should be.
“That is a part-time legislature. We do the multitask to the max. We cannot work with any personal business from our state office or state computer.”
Lozano wants to work with Aleshire to establish the laws better for security.
