The recent cyberattacks on big companies such as Colonial Pipeline, which caused a shortage of gasoline nationwide, and most recently the attack on Accenture, a global consulting firm, are proof that as businesses rely more on technology to safeguard their important documents and client profiles, it has become more and more imperative for them to invest in proper security measures to avoid information leaks and ransoms attacks.
Corporations and businesses dealing with sensitive information have an absolute responsibility to guarantee their clients’ personal information will be secured from malware and thieves.
Cyberattacks are not the only hurdle a company may face in terms of keeping documents secured.
Corporate espionage, or even a distracted employee sending the wrong email with corporate secrets or personal information can lead to the same result of leaks and ransoms. The question remains – what can companies do to avoid these leaks?
The answer lies with companies such as South Florida based Doc-Solutions, which focuses on keeping documents secured by properly protecting important documents from being opened without the appropriate and real time clearance. This security is meant to ease the minds of businesses and their clients, as no information would be at risk of falling into the wrong hands.
“We are speaking with a lot of companies who believe that data and network protection alone will secure all their information. This is a false sense of security. They often don't consider all the valuable and sensitive information contained within office and PDF documents that are frequently shared locally, by e-mail and via cloud storage. Documents are often shared but hardly ever tracked or secured.” — Gavin Rembach, President, Doc-Solutions
We now know, that events such as WikiLeaks, Colonial Pipeline and Accenture’s cyberattacks could have been easily avoided by having proper Document Security.
Please join for this informative webinar. We will learn how to make certain our businesses are safe from information leaks; whether malicious, or unintentional.
