How to avoid considerable damage by unnoticed handling


Data protection, trusted solutions and strategic advice on European compliance directives

TAUCHA, Germany, May 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In the era of digital data processing, in addition to great benefits, there are also certain dangers and risks, such as the possibility of easy data modification and rapid electronic transport. If these properties are used for unnoticed manipulation, considerable damage can occur. This concerns not only the manipulation of the content, which is fatal in the case of contracts or invoices, but also the origin of the data which can be falsified. This in turn opens the door to a wide range of activities by cybercriminals.

And finally, data sent in the clear in emails, for example, is easy prey for attackers to steal the information it contains. Companies still need to be aware of this risk, because not everyone has yet internalized that an unprotected email is actually a postcard – sensitive data has no place there.

In general, the use of cryptography in the form of electronic certificates with corresponding key material provides sufficient protection. This can be used, for example, to encrypt an e-mail and to clearly identify the sender via a signature. The electronic signature is also the best way to prove the authenticity and origin of digital documents. This works even better than in the analog paper world, because here recognizing a signature is a subjective decision. By contrast, with a qualified electronic signature on a document, the signer or author can be determined beyond doubt.

Today, modern cloud solutions are available for this. Thus, for the electronic signature with our solution, only an Internet-compatible terminal with a standard browser is necessary, nothing more. The data remains entirely on the device and can be encrypted for personal use or for sending emails.
