A few weeks ago, I received a meeting request on behalf of one of our customers directly from an auditor. I know that there are people who dread meeting with auditors, but I actually enjoy these conversations because I get a chance to describe, in detail, the features within our software that enable the protection of data in all states – at rest, in transit and in use. More importantly, I get the opportunity to talk about security best practices and how to easily adopt a defense-in-depth security posture.

Security and privacy are increasing in importance and becoming more political; a challenging situation that has been compounded by frequent news of data breaches from high-profile companies such as Equifax, where the information of more than 145 million Americans was compromised.

The Federal Trade Commission has opened a probe into Equifax’s historic data breach in which hackers compromised sensitive data on nearly half of all U.S. consumers. Investigators want to know whether or not the breach could have potentially been avoided had the firm been more proactive in employing the latest security patches to their systems.

Using Business Intelligence to Improve Workflow

eesyq wkfBy Jonathan Millbank, eesyQ Solutions

During the last 20 years, we have seen a fundamental shift from analog to digital content, allowing organizations to increase capabilities, efficiencies and turnaround times. However, this digital shift has not all been smooth sailing; it has demanded organizations to respond by changing technically, culturally, operationally, and in terms of improving skillsets and overall business strategies, or risk falling behind competitors.

An Intelligent Blueprint for Managing Document Workflow

Neal wkfBy Ken Neal, Canon Business Process Services

The Dow tells you how stocks are performing this very minute. Your dashboard tells you how your car is performing this very second. An electrocardiogram tells you how your heart is performing beat by beat. Yet when it comes to measuring the performance of document management activities (such as mail/shipping and print/copy center operations), many businesses rely on quarterly results in spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations. By most standards, monthly is very aggressive. 

Workflow is a comprehensive editorial website dedicated to exploring, defining and articulating the ever-changing technologies and business processes of the office technology industry.

As hard-copy information continues its transformation to more dynamic and electronic forms, an increasing number of office and personal devices are becoming part of the larger managed information technology landscape, compelling vendors and consumers of related equipment, applications and services to seek out ways to streamline their processes and improve efficiencies.

Through examination of workflow applications and services and their providers, Workflow informs its audiences of these shifts in enterprise content management (ECM), business process management (BPM) and optimization applications, providing a one-stop repository of actionable news and information for the office technology and managed services industries.

Workflow’s goal is to not only recognize these shifts, but also bring together these disparate worlds of information technology to provide a centralized resource for understanding and mastering the information lifecycle of tomorrow’s office.
