Secure Board Communication

Boards of directors need to communicate effectively to set goals for the company and help it reach them. However, their communication can also reveal private information, including financial information, which could be devastating if it is in the improper hands.

This is why secure board communication is so important, especially in the age of technology that is changing how business operates. To achieve this boards must adopt secure collaboration tools like board portals as well as real-time messaging platforms. It is crucial that boards evaluate and monitor their governance performance, including their approach to secure communication.

A board portal, for example, which allows an effortless transition from formal to informal channels of communication, such as email, group chats, and texting, is essential for secure communications. This kind of software will provide a secure, private method of working on documents and allow simple file sharing and real-time discussions. It should have features that support granular controls for access and deletion, as well as security protocols for encryption and backup.

A strong board portal is vital however, so are secure instant messaging tools and meeting scheduling software. These tools should be easy to use, just like popular texting, email or phone applications. They should also have extra security features, such as the ability to cancelling messages and preset contacts. They must also send automatically read notifications, as well as an “view-only attachment” option that stops downloading screens, exporting, screen shots and forwarding. Finally, they should be backed up across geographically dispersed areas to avoid data loss.
