Simple Tips for Document Security


Are you looking for a fast, easy, and effective way to keep your documents safe and sound? It's easier than you might think--as long as you come armed with these simple tips, of course!

Where to Start

The important thing to remember about document security is that there's no "quick fix" or "shortcut." You're going to have to put some serious time and effort into security measures, procedures, and backup plans--and you might have to spend a little money, too. (Luckily, document security is always worth it!) However, it's also important to remember that every little step counts--which means that even the smallest, simplest tips can make a big difference.

Here are a few ideas to help get you started!

#1: Change how you share.

Sharing files is quick and convenient, but it's not always secure. Make sure you're only using reliable, protected apps or tools to send files back and forth--and don't let employees use any sharing software that isn't company-approved.

#2: Remember the real world.

Digital document security is important, of course, but so is offline defense. Make sure never to leave files unattended on the printer tray, always deliver hard copies using tracking services and a reliable courier, and scan or shred files rather than leaving them lying around.

#3: Store safely.

Storage--both online and off--should always be secure. This means locking file cabinets to installing security cameras in the real world, while in the digital one, it generally implies password protection and user access. Some of these tips will also help your company stay compliant with privacy and security regulations, so be sure to do some further research to make sure you're on the right track!
