Digital Documentation: Authenticity and IntegrityEntrust's Jay Schiavo on New Mindset, New Automated Solutions
With the explosion of remote business, we are now digitizing many of our documents and processes. Entrust’s Jay Schiavo explains what new mindset this shift requires, what’s needed to ensure document authenticity and integrity and shares advice for organizations currently making this shift.
Schiavo VP, ECS products and markets at Entrust, says as organizations digitize more of their documents, “all parties in the process need to trust the authenticity and the integrity of that document, from its creation to the time it's signed to the time it’s sent back to the recipient.”
Challenges for businesses making this shift arise on the legal and technology sides, Schiavo says. “In most regions of the world, electronic signatures are valid and are accepted as legal forms of documents, but the challenge is that it varies from region which type of electronic signature that is accepted.
" Having that legal expertise and understanding which types of signatures are available, which ones are valid for which type of use cases is really important for organizations."
In an interview about ensuring authenticity and trust in digital documentation, Schiavo discusses:
- What’s needed to ensure document authenticity and integrity;
- Key pain points for organizations currently making the shift to digitizing documents and processes;
- How Entrust can address these challenges and other security needs.
