Records missing after Libya attack

September 21st, 2012 | Posted by Kevin Corley in Document Management

From fires to storms, offices and all that they contain can be destroyed in a number of ways. Sometimes, however, the elimination of a company or agency comes at the hands of man. Such is the case in Libya, where protesters recently partially destroyed the United States Embassy, resulting in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. In addition, several documents were either stolen or ruined by bombs.

According to Digital Journal, the attack in Benghazi resulted in the disappearance of files concerning business relationships between the American government and Libyan oil contractors. Theoretically, if the files ended up in the wrong hands, this could spell trouble for laborers in the Middle Eastern nation, as well as government officials.

No matter the reason behind the destruction, offices of any sort could keep their records safe from harm by storing them online with conversion services. The technology allows the complete uploading of all information on files and safeguards them on remote servers, so even if the physical location is destroyed, the records remain intact. This can be a great idea for companies worried about threats of any sort or business leaders that will need to access documents remotely.
