I have talked to several IT staff from community action agencies who have set up their own paperless solution for their CAP agency. They scan their important documents as PDF’s and store them on their server.
This sounds like a good – cheap way to handle their documents but there is one thing they didn’t realize. They have just made their documents susceptible to being compromised.
These documents can easily be destroyed by hackers. If this sounds far-fetched or you think it can’t happen to you – then you need to read this. http://hemingwaysolutions.net/inexpensive-paperless-solution-for-community-action-agencies-or-is-it/
