There’s a lot to consider when it comes to risk management for your company. But one thing you can never overlook is document security. The good news is that there are plenty of efficient, painless tips to help bring your document security–and your risk management–to the next level.

Protecting Your Documents

Information security is a critical piece of your company’s defense plan. Simply because it helps you manage countless risks simultaneously with just a few simple solutions. When it comes to protecting your information, there’s no better place to start than your document management practices–and you might not even realize how many risks you’re still taking with everyday files. All it takes is one sensitive document left on the printer, and suddenly, your most important information is in the wrong hands.

Luckily, risk management is easy when it comes to document security. All you have to do is integrate some easy solutions like these.


When it’s time to choose solutions, the first thing you have to do is make a long-term plan, organize the solutions you’d like to integrate, and then prioritize. Start with simple solutions like encryption and malware protection that won’t interrupt your day-to-day functions.


Sometimes, less is more–and that’s certainly true when it comes to points of contact. Minimize how many places you store and access documents; cut out USBs and printer memory as much as you can, because this will make it easier to protect what’s important.


Finally, a surprisingly simple solution that will help you manage risks and keep your documents safe is to simply analyze your situation regularly. Remember that digital threats are always growing and changing, which means that your security plan can never be stagnant.
