How Digitization Protects Data


When it comes to document security, many companies are liable to panic--and that's understandable. After all, in a world full of threats coming from all different directions, it can feel almost impossible to keep your data safe and sound. Luckily, there's one efficient, practical approach you may not have considered yet: digitization.

Why Digitize?

Wait a minute, you might be thinking. Why is it safer to digitize documents when most threats are online anyway?

Well, there's a simple answer to that. Digitization puts you in control of your documents--where they're saved, how they can be accessed, who can view them, and who can share them--rather than leaving you to scramble for different software and tools. It's a massive benefit to document security because it's simple, reliable, and efficient--and, with fewer opportunities for human error, it makes life just a little bit easier for everyone. Of course, online threats will always exist (and are only getting stronger), but digitization allows you to customize your security processes down to the smallest detail. A file cabinet certainly can't do that!

What You Need to Know

Digitization helps protect against data theft from multiple sources. The commonly stolen information includes:

  • personal client and employee information,
  • financial information including payroll data and passwords,
  • and intellectual property.

These different types of data need to be protected in different ways, all without interrupting their functionality. Luckily, digitization makes that easier than ever--and here's how.

#1: Simplify

By streamlining hectic workflows, creating simple ways to store and share files, and encouraging better organization, document digitization helps simplify every corner of your company.

#2: Secure

Digitization puts you in the driver's seat when it comes to security. You can limit who has access to what, password protect important documents, and even monitor usage.

#3: Strengthen

Once your documents are digitized and secure, you're free to start coming up with unique ways to interact with your new, stronger infrastructure. Your budget, clients, and employees will thank you.
