The importance of managing your documents in the Digital Age

Over the past twenty years, there has been an explosion in the amount of sensitive information being created and stored. We share why managing your documents in the digital age is key for your business.

Over the past twenty years, there has been an explosion in the amount of sensitive information being created and stored. With the growing use of Cloud based Software, the challenges have become more and more complex. Whilst having a digital copy is required for most businesses, almost every business will have a requirement to retain some physical documents. The key to getting this right is to have a professional records management solution in place.  

With the recent announcement of GDPR, there is no room for error when it comes to storing data. The consequences of a data breach will have damaging implications for your business.

There have been several cases where the Information Commissioner’s Office have fined large corporations for failing to protect their databases, where personal data such as names, addresses and date of births have been put at risk – and the ICO continue to issue financial penalties for data breaches. Moving forward, the key issues organisations need to address are hard copy storage, data storage and ensuring the correct disposal method of information.

By implementing a professional records management plan will ensure your documents are easily accessible to only those who need them. As a Records Management Specialist, we can provide a document management solution no matter what stage your business is at.
