Question: When do most people take action to secure their data and assets ? Answer: After an incident has occurred rather than before!

Digitising records, especially historical and precious ones not only is the sensible and correct option – it is also a pragmatic one too.

There is a very strong business case for taking action to digitise and secure data, both precious and current working material.

 • How many filing cabinets are taking up acres of precious space across the city of London and beyond ?        Space has a real value – especially in London

• How many hours work are wasted searching for a single document within a file, within a box of records inside a dusty cupboard?      Wasting time is wasting money

• How many files once retrieved are then misplaced – refiled in the adjoining file – never to be seen again?       A value only realised when it is too late.

• How often do you need to have access to data, but are not in the right place or need it immediatley?        Information at your fingertips. Fully indexed, Fully Searchable

Once digitised, the data is easily secured and backed up. It also becomes fast and simple to search and retrieve information. Not only a huge benefit with current records, but a great assistance to research.

Research information and access to historical records can in some cases provide a lucrative income for the owners of that information, if digitized there is no danger of mishandling, theft, or accidents.

New legislation, the GDPR, will make loss or mishandling of Data a very expensive mistake. Digital Data can be simply and efficiently totally secured in a few keystroke with the correct software.
