As an accountant, you regularly receive confidential financial information from your clients and you have the obligation to keep it secure.
While you may be accustomed to receiving documents by email, emails actually aren’t very secure at all for the purpose, since they go through several stages before finally being delivered to your inbox.
Here’s an illustration to help you visualize the delivery process of an email:
At any point during the delivery process above, the email can get intercepted by unauthorized third persons or parties — putting your clients confidential information at risk. Think of it being similar to sending a postcard, where the information is easily accessible by whoever is handling the postcard or has access to it while it’s traveling to its destination.
If any of your clients’ information gets leaked, you’ll likely be blamed for not providing a secure way for your clients to send you information.
Fortunately, with the changes to technology over the years, there are now more secure and efficient ways to receive documents from your clients.
