Information security and data exchange platforms Part II

Encryption is not difficult, but it can be a bit cumbersome, especially for non-technical workers. Therefore, it is worth using specially prepared data exchange platforms for secure work on documents. In such platforms, security is indeed at a high level, and that will be important. It will be possible to protect these valuable data in an effective way. If we decide to work on such platforms, it will be worth placing files there with the help of modern, well-known editors and determine who will have access to them. If we work on such a platform, even though it is well done, we are not exempt from thinking.

We require one communicator to be used by all persons in the company. In addition, we also specify what cannot be sent by instant messengers. If we allow employees to install consumer communicators, they will need to learn their safety rules. Connections to known persons only or mandatory cameras only.
