Security is a top priority in any business. As technology changes and new possibilities emerge, so too do threats and security concerns. No matter what changes or evolutions your company is currently undergoing or will take on, document security should always be a priority.
One of the biggest issues related to document security is that it is so easy to overlook certain risks. For example, many businesses have no idea that most copiers store data on a hard drive automatically. If the copier happens to be a leased device or is donated or sold at some point, and if the hard drive is not wiped clean, the new owners might have access to sensitive information.
Similarly, plenty of organizations have incomplete procedures for handling digital documents. They may not use encryption, or they might not restrict access to documents. There’s a lot that can go wrong in those scenarios, even without malicious intent. Sensitive information can be accidentally leaked or deleted, or regulations can be broken.
