Outdated storage methods can lead to compliance failures

December 17th, 2012 | Posted by Kevin Corley in Document Management

If a business needs yet another reason to invest in document management solutions, regulatory compliance is a good one. For many businesses, privacy is a No. 1 concern. This is especially true for law, healthcare and other forms of counseling or health-related assistance. In many cases for businesses in these industries, the smallest problem could result in a catastrophic breach of privacy, and investing in improved ways to organize and store customer information is essential.

Recently, a lifeline service had a data breach when filing boxes that were holding confidential records for storage literally collapsed, sending paperwork flying into the street. This privacy breach could end up costing the firm significantly, although proper measures are being taken to avoid the issue from happening again, according to the Belfast Telegraph.

For any business, a key way to avoid these types of issues, as well as other paper-related problems that could result in a leak of sensitive information, is to eliminate the paper in the first place. With document conversion services and a related management solution, organizations can eliminate the risk of paper records falling into the wrong hands, and improve the overall workflow in their offices at the same time.
