  • How ECM Keeps Data Secure

    , Director, Enterprise Content Management

    PrintThere’s no doubt about it. Every company, no matter what size or type, has massive amounts of data and sensitive information that must be kept secure and accessible only to those who need it. There are solutions and best practices you can have in place that will ensure all of your information remains safe. Having a lack of technology and protocols to organize and protect your data is a good way to set yourself up for data security issues.

    The challenge is huge.  The answer is clear: enterprise content management (ECM).

    Data security doesn’t only have to do with information being stolen or hacked; it involves knowing where your data is located and being able to access it when needed. This is especially true when information is stored and filed on paper. The frequency of documents being misfiled and lost are higher than most people want to believe — and very costly. On average, between 2 percent and 5 percent of an organization’s files are lost or misfiled on any given day.

    Now add to this compliance regulations and audits. With the increasing levels of compliance regulations and required audits, both internal and external, keeping track of necessary documents is more important than ever. This is difficult with a system heavy on hard-copy data. Paper-heavy businesses run the risk of being compromised or losing data that could result in lawsuits and other negative repercussions.

    To combat these concerns, business executives have begun to implement firewalls and disaster recovery plans to ward off outside attacks on their data.

    Having a strategy in place is the crucial key to your protection. The bloodline of your organization is your data and that is not something you can risk.

    7 Benefits of a Paperless (aka ECM) Solution

    , President, Enterprise Content Management

    We know that every organization has its own unique set of business challenges.

    Whether you’re a manufacturing company producing auto parts or a pharmaceutical company producing heart medication, you both deal with paper. And, in most cases, too much of it. When you hear the term “Go Paperless,” most people think it means that paper is completely removed. That’s neither accurate nor possible. What going paperless really means is that you pinpoint the areas of your business that are paper-heavy, manually driven and time-consuming and then streamline those areas to improve efficiency. Streamlining will involve some type of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution that utilizes workflow and automation to replace those processes that are slowing you down and costing you too much time and money.
