This isn't to say that digital breaches aren't of critical importance to an organization — they obviously are, and you need a plan in place to prevent and respond to these attacks. While digital security is a key part of most business strategies, far fewer organizations have a plan in place to keep their organization's paper assets secure, other than placing it behind a lock and key. While different industries are at varying levels of information maturity, many are still hesitant to move on from paper, citing a number of reasons.
Digitization can be time-consuming and many businesses don't want to make the investment when they already have a storage solution in place. When this digitization is complete, employees must then be trained on how to access the information they need. There's also the comfort of having a tangible, physical copy of a record, rather than calling up a file on your tablet. And of course, there's the fear of a data breach. But while these are legitimate concerns, they shouldn't stop you from making the digital transition.
