Are paperless transactions secure?

When it comes to security, paperless transactions can be much more secure than their traditional counterparts.

To start with, most software platforms have built-in security measures that allow administrators to control exactly which team members have access to specific customer information. Users can also be tracked to detect any system or information misuse. In contrast, even physical filing cabinets held under lock and key can easily fall into the wrong hands with people able to access documents and make hard copies.

In addition, the best platforms will also include advanced encryption options to ensure that sensitive information is protected both during transmission and when stored safely away. Some platforms also allow for confidential information to be redacted, protecting personally identifying information on an as-needed basis.

Another benefit of using digital file storage is that businesses can incorporate other tech-based tools into their workflows. Esignatures, which can make approvals and payments faster, can include security measures that prevent document tampering and guarantee the authenticity of the signer.
