A headline devoted to your business is great. A headline devoted to leaked financial data? Not so much. Corporate data security is a hot topic across the headlines this week as several high-profile organizations experienced external attacks that compromised their data and customer information. With targeted hacking on the rise, it’s important for companies to take a look at their own risk and identify any internal security deficiencies that might “help” their data find its way beyond their own four walls.
For management of financial areas like travel & expense, eProcurement and accounts payable, on-premise business solutions can enhance data security both in and outside of the office with benefits such as:
- Reduced risk of external attack
- Fewer hard copies of financial documents
- A 360-degree view of financial data and infrastructure
- Enhanced compliance with federal regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxle
Shareholders and customers rely on informed decisions from executives to keep their information away from prying eyes and news headlines. Companies that have the IT infrastructure in place to support an on-premise approach to their financial processes should take a look at what is available to assist them with their security and compliance needs. With technology changing rapidly, both to combat and create these crippling intrusions into public and private data, it’s important to stay one step ahead of the game – or even better, change the rules with help from a trusted solution provider like Apptricity.
