Encryption & Tracking with SafeCom
A breach in document security could have dire and long-lasting effects on your brand and your customers. Data encryption & tracking is the solution.
Stop. Think about the daily information exchanged in any industry. Legal and medical fields are obviously handling confidential data around individual’s, their financial situations, health status and contacts but have you considered how much information is handed over when you book a trip? All vendors require payment details, personal information around contacts and preferences. When you complete the vacation what happens to all the digital and printed information of your life?
Your company handles the information of customers and the responsibility to safeguard that data lies with YOU. How the information is gathered (over networks), where it is stored (in digital or hard-copy), what it is used for (who has access to the information) and how it is disposed of all comes down to how you track the movement of the data and the encryption you use to protect it from theft. As technology increases so too does the risk of attack.
With the implementation of the POPIA (Protection of Personal Information Act) coming into play in South Africa in 2019 measures need to be put in place that enhance tracking and encryption of information. We can look to Europe for some assistance as they saw the implementation of the GDPR in 2018 so Nuance has provided solutions to the new issues we face.
What is document encryption?
Document encryption is the process by which documents are protected with cryptographic keys (a password, public key, token, etc.) so that only individuals with the corresponding decryption keys (the same password, private key, token, etc.) can open them. It is used to protect documents in transit (i.e. sent via email) and at rest (i.e. stored on a disk or in the cloud) from being accessed by unauthorized users.

So, encryption is used for keeping secrets, preventing information falsification and verifying that the information received is the information that was sent.
Encryption protects your documents while they travel around the network or sit on a hard drive somewhere by end-to-end encryption and print tracking.
SafeCom Encryption is a standard feature of SafeCom Pull Print. It guarantees that documents and data are not intercepted while travelling over the network. The SafeCom solution is using various encryption levels and technologies. The application encrypts the document before it leaves the PC and is sent to the print server. The encryption is not decoded until the document is loaded in the printer for printing.
