Secure Board Communication

Boards of directors require effective communication to set the corporation’s goals and assist in achieving the goals. Their communication could reveal sensitive information, including financial data that could prove disastrous in the incorrect hands.

This is why ensuring that board communications are secure is so important, especially in the age of technology that is changing how business functions. To achieve this, boards need to implement secure collaboration tools such as boards portals and real-time message platforms. It’s also important for boards to be able to monitor and analyze their own governance performance, which includes their strategy for secure communication.

A board portal, for example, which allows an effortless transition between informal and formal communications channels, such as group chats, emails, and texting is essential to ensure secure communications. This kind of software will offer a secure and private method of collaboration on documents. It also allows for simple file sharing and real-time discussions. It should come with features that allow for the control of access and deletion as well as security protocols such encryption and backup.

In addition to a secure board portal, secure instant messaging and meeting scheduling tools are important. They should be easy to use and operate like popular phone, texting and email apps. Furthermore, they should come with additional security features such as the ability to revoke messages, set contacts, automatically send read notifications and the “view-only” attachment option that prevents exports, downloads and screen captures and forwarding. Finally it is recommended to back them up in remote, geographically dispersed locations to mitigate loss of data.
