Document security as a concept is rarely easy. The good news, though, is that the steps you take to get there don't have to be a pain. Here are three simple tips for document security to help get the ball rolling!

Improving Document Security, One Step at a Time

The thing about document security is that the definition of success is always changing. Why? Well, as cybercriminals introduce new challenges and come up with fresh ways to put your data at risk, you have to be equally flexible, constantly moving the "finish line" (if that even exists).

Luckily, you don't have to guess at document security and hope for the best. Here are three simple tips to help shape your document security approach!

#1: Create digital and paper-based solutions.

Unless your office is totally paperless, the chances are high that you'll need both digital and paper-based document security solutions. This means that, while you're creating strong passwords and choosing reliable applications, you should also focus on locking file cabinets and implementing solutions like follow-me printing to protect files on the printer tray.

#2: Don't forget about the cloud.

It's easy to overlook cloud solutions when you're focused on document security. However, when utilized properly, the cloud can be a powerful way to protect your data--just make sure you're using reliable cloud solutions, encrypting information when possible, and never using default passwords.

#3: Get smart about backups.

Having data backups is a great way to improve your document security strategy, but it's not enough. Instead, you need to get smart about those backups--which means you have to password-protect them, update them regularly, and restrict user access to their contents.


Document security may not always be easy, but it can be a little easier. All you have to do is start small and take it one step at a time. Keep in mind, though, that tips like these are just the beginning--there's always more to learn when it comes to document security.
