Many Intelligent Document Processing vendors focus solely on the front end of the document capture and management process. They talk about machine learning and neural networking and deep learning. It’s all about the accurate extraction of data from documents. KnowledgeLake does this extremely well, too. But rarely do you see an IDP vendor talk about what companies should do with their documents AFTER the data is collected and parsed. That work is often, as they say, “out of scope.” Without a searchable document repository, however, organizations only have half the story. If you look holistically at what companies need to accomplish, it is not JUST about ...

It is that time of year again! Time to look at your retention schedule and decide what needs to be organized. It is a love-hate relationship for some. Most organizations have filed taxes for 2020, making this a great time of year to think about whether older accounting records may no longer be subject to any retention requirements. Everyone knows how important it is to balance your company books, but where do you even start? Start by determining what accounting documents you have and what your record retention requirements are. All businesses are required to keep accounting documents for certain lengths of time. Keeping your accounting records organized can ...

Collaboration nation Ever stopped to calculate how many people you work with each day? On average, most of us work with 10 or more people each day, and about half of us report working with more than 20. Aided by collaboration business technologies that flourished at the onset of the pandemic with the rapid adoption of remote or hybrid work, we are now working with more people than ever before. No longer constrained to interacting only with co-workers and customers within the confines of physical office space, our professional connections have multiplied at a rate previously unseen. For the most part, this is a good thing. In fact, most of us ...

Have you heard the news yet? The Colorado Privacy Act has raised the brrr for the Centennial State. This past summer, Colorado’s governor signed the CPA into law, making it the third comprehensive privacy rights law among the states. On July 1, 2023, the CPA will take effect, six months after the California Privacy Rights Act (an update to the CCPA) and Virginia’s Data Protection Act (CDPA). The CPA’s passage raises a number of important questions for organizations conducting business in Colorado, such as: what does the CPA entail; who must comply; how will the law be enforced, and; what do companies need to know to comply with the CPA? A Sneak “Peak” ...

Author: Tim Brady, CEO, Colligo Lack of SharePoint user adoption could be could be costing you money and negatively impacting productivity Your organization is likely one of the over one million companies worldwide who have Microsoft 365 .

As technology continues to advance at a dizzying pace in nearly every aspect of our lives, this holds true for data storage solutions as well. Coming down the pipeline are some big (or, more accurately – minuscule) and exciting developments in the ways we store our digital data! DNA storage In a prior post, we discussed the fascinating possibilities of storing data on strands of DNA . The basic rundown of the process involves digital data being chopped up and stored as synthetic DNA molecules in sequenced strands. These strands are synthesized into actual DNA, which can be preserved for long periods of time (potentially thousands, or even a million years). ...

Author: Tim Brady, CEO, Colligo Your organization has a unique approach for managing information and content. Inconsistency is normal, as organizations vary greatly in their maturity and quality of handling information and managing the information lifecycle. But your organizations and all others have learned a vast amount over the last two years regarding your information needs and information governance. Given you’re now utilizing SharePoint Online and Microsoft 365 for your content services platform, as most organizations , you’re probably wondering, “Now that we’re on this cutting edge platform, why are we having the same old challenges?” “Why would ...

In today’s world where humans produce 2.5 quintillion bytes of data daily (that’s a million trillion!), [1] the average data breach costs $3.86 million, [2] and companies can face data privacy-related fines north of $800 million, [1] records and information management (RIM) is getting more time in the spotlight. Most RIM practitioners can build a strong case for a good records management and retention policy – it can help avoid litigation, save on discovery costs, and limit the impact of a data breach. But what about using RIM as a way to elevate your company in the eyes of customers? One way to achieve this is through obtaining advanced certifications ...

The Privacy of Information Collected on the Internet From Consumers Act (NPICICA) and Security of Information Maintained by Data Collectors and Other Businesses statute (SIMDC) are Nevada’s two main online consumer privacy laws (together, Nevada’s Privacy Laws). Although lesser-known and considered less comprehensive [1] than the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), Nevada’s Privacy Laws are still impactful among privacy laws in the United States. Recent amendments to Nevada’s Privacy Laws provide consumers far more protection. Below is a summary of the framework of Nevada’s Privacy Laws along with recent amendments. What Information is Protected? ...

With video surveillance becoming less expensive and more widely available, our images are increasingly recorded. But things are not as Orwellian as they seem. Even before drones, dashcams or video doorbells became everyday items, regulators established requirements for video surveillance. How long an entity can retain images depends on several things, including the areas the cameras cover, the type of business capturing the image, and the events captured. Most international video surveillance requirements are not found in regulations, directives, or statutes. Rather, these requirements are frequently governed by data protection authorities through guidelines, ...

Encryption is an essential element in the toolbox of any security professional or records manager. In the event of a data breach, encryption acts as a failsafe to make stolen data unreadable to hackers and prevent them from putting it to nefarious uses. Encryption also plays a key role in our ordinary daily lives. When you log in to a website or pay with your credit card, you are relying on encryption to keep your credentials out of the hands of thieves. The encrypted contents of smartphones keep our private conversations and photographs safe from prying eyes. Even law enforcement agencies like the FBI and CIA are unable to read the contents of certain encrypted ...

A common question amongst our international clients is: “which jurisdictional law should our retention schedule follow?” From a records management perspective, the general rule of thumb is to focus on the “place of the regulated activity.” Applying this rule can be difficult, however, when there are regulated activities with legal and operational implications beyond the borders in which the activity takes place. This becomes an issue in particular when retention requirements between jurisdictions that use the same types of record vary greatly in the retention periods. Of course, there are exceptions to every general rule, and this guidance must be qualified with ...

Better search. That was among of the top three features that IT leaders said they needed most, according to a recent survey of medium- and large-sized North American organizations conducted by OrigamiConnect. The related article in CMSWire goes on to say, “A better search is the biggest requirement for many organizations. In our experience, search issues are often caused by outdated site structure and information design. This out-of-date information architecture usually results in confusing navigation, poor metadata tagging and a lack of intuitive search.” Poor (or no) metadata tagging is often the culprit among organizations Colligo works with. In fact, ...
