One of the biggest possible consequences of disasters to a business is data loss. In particular, paper documents are highly vulnerable to the effects of calamities like earthquakes, flooding, hurricanes, and wildfires.
Risk management experts recommend digitizing as an effective means of preserving important company files and data. The process requires identifying which among the business’ paper documents need to be preserved, scanning the identified files, and storing the scanned images in a secure electronic location. Given the volume of data that companies typically have to preserve, it is advisable to seek professional document scanning services for better cost-efficiency.
