In today’s cybersecurity and compliance environment with cyber attacks of heightened sophistication and regulations with increasingly strict consequences, boards can’t afford to conduct boardroom communications without the best security available.
The Need: Protection that supports productivity
For busy directors on the go, personal and corporate email accounts are the convenient way to send messages and share information. They’re already loaded onto a smartphone, laptop, or tablet and their ease of use is second nature.
Yet these channels of communication often lack the rigorous protections sensitive board communications demand.
If data isn’t properly encrypted, a hack can expose this information to the world, threatening compliance, reputation and share/stock prices. An email address error can leak confidential data—with potentially catastrophic legal repercussions for the organization and directors themselves. Even the savviest directors may be vulnerable to a sophisticated password hack or phishing attack.
The Answer: Safeguards that don’t slow directors down
How can directors fulfill their increasingly complex and collaborative fiduciary responsibilities without putting valuable data, the organization and themselves to risk? Through a communications solution that achieves the best of both worlds: security and simplicity.
This solution must meet the highest international standards, including industry-specific ones like HIPAA, using industry best practices for data encryption, controlling system access and dealing with compromised devices. Your board solution needs to integrate seamlessly with other board applications and be hassle-free for the IT department.
Concurrently, this solution must accommodate the real-time exchange of ideas and information while being easy to learn and use—avoiding the temptation of risky workarounds.
