Elektronische Signaturen in Europa: Einblick in rechtliche Aspekte zum Nachweis von Willenserklärungen
Ausnahemsweise einmal ein Whitepaper der AIIM in deutscher Sprache (eine englische Version gab es schon in unserer "Sommer-Liste"). Dementsprechend gibt es hierin auch Informationen zu eIDAS und zur elektronischen Signatur in Deutschland.
"Die meisten Kunden kommunizieren heute online und mobil. Dementsprechend sind die Erwartungen an die Geschäftsbereiche der Unternehmen mit denen sie kommunizieren: Möglichst überall, jederzeit und über alle Kanäle, einschließlich Smartphones und Tablets, möchten sie geschäftliche Transaktionen einfach und problemlos erledigen. Das Selbe erwarten die Mitarbeiter von Unternehmen bei internen Arbeitsabläufen. Das Ausdrucken von Dokumenten um sie auf Papier zu unterschreiben, empfinden sowohl Kunden wie auch Mitarbeiter als umständlich und lästig…

Fazit der AIIM in der Studie "Elektronische Signaturen in Europa: Einblick in rechtliche Aspekte zum Nachweis von Willenserklärungen" vom August 2016
Obwohl elektronisches Unterschreiben rasch weiter an Akzeptanz gewinnt, zunehmend eingesetzt wird und Verordnungen wie eIDAS zusätzlichen Rückenwind bringen, gibt es keinen einzelnen, standardisierten Ansatz zum Einsatz elektronischer Signaturen in Europa der sich für alle Anwendungszwecke gleichermaßen eignet. Die EU-Verordnung 910/2014 minimiert jedoch die bisher vorherrschende Verwirrung und Komplexität für Unternehmen, die multinational agieren. eIDAS liefert Unternehmen, die elektronische Signaturen einsetzen möchten Anhaltspunkte funktionaler Anforderungen bei der Auswahl möglicher Anbieter. Lösungen mit denen sich Prozesse erstellen lassen die eIDAS-kompatibel sind können in allen Ländern der Europäischen Union eingesetzt werden sowie in Ländern die aufgrund enger vertraglichen Bindungen zur Europäischen Union mit ihr stark verknüpft sind, wie Norwegen oder der Schweiz.
Diese Vorschriften wurden zum 1. Juli 2016 wirksam. So ist es zwingend erforderlich, dass sich die Unternehmen nicht nur die Zeit nehmen, die Vorschriften selbst zu verstehen, sondern auch welche Auswirkungen diese haben, sowohl für Unternehmen die a) bereits Lösung für elektronisches Signieren einsetzen oder b) einen Nutzung planen. Wer bereits Lösungen für das elektronische Signieren einsetzt,
sollte sicherstellen, dass diese die Vorschriften erfüllen. Unternehmen, die eine Nutzung planen, sollten sicherstellen, dass diese die rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen einhält. Sie können eIDAS als eine der Grundlagen für ihre funktionalen Anforderungen im Auswahlprozess verwenden.
Jedes Jahr wird das Thema Sharepoint neu aufgegriffen. Deutlich wird, wie Microsoft immer mehr die Lösungen in die Cloud verlegen will. ECM-Lösungen in Ergänzung von Sharepoint spielen aber auch Inhouse weiterhin eine große Rolle.
"The SharePoint platform has evolved over time, positioning to become a digital workspace and universal interface of sorts. SharePoint is being used in support of collaborative efforts of all kinds including co-authoring of documents, information sharing, and an integration point with all enterprise information sources. In this study, we find that there is a slight increase over last year of SharePoint use in an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Document Management (DM) role with 28% of respondents citing it is their only (10%) or main (18%) ECM/DM system…"

Die Studie betrachtet den Wandel bei Enterprise Software unter dem Druck von Apps, Mobile und Cloud.
"Today, in the enterprise, nothing is ever at rest; everything is fast, and getting faster. From critical business processes, ECM and capture, to human resource management, marketing, or email – everything seems to be running at a breakneck pace. Work is always working, even if we aren’t. Attempts to keep up with the increasing speed of the enterprise by many organizations have, conversely, slowed things down…"

Fazit der AIIM in der Studie "The Agile Enterprise: A Welcome Change" vom Juli 2016
Accelerating the enterprise through automation, technology, and change management is necessary in order to keep pace with the changing business and technology landscapes, as well as stay ahead of the competition. It is no longer feasible to arbitrate business decisions on a multiple month or multiple year timeframe. Technology obsolescence is fast, the market is difficult to predict, and solutions that worked yesterday may not cut it today. More pressingly, the cost of failure is high, and the risk of providing a solution that doesn’t solve the problem is higher still. So what kinds of solutions should be deployed to solve critical business problems and be successful?
In zwei Studien geht AIIM besonders auf die Fragen der Datensicherheit und des Datenschutzes ein. Besonders durch Digitalisierung, mobile Nutzung, Einbindung von Geschäftspartnern und immer mehr Information außerhalb der IT des Unternehmens selbst sind aktuelle Herausforderungen.
"The current direction of the enterprise is digital transformation. Digitalization promotes an efficient information lifecycle that facilitates access to critical information – wherever and whenever it is needed – in a way that wouldn’t be possible with physical mediums. However, proactive measures need to be taken to mitigate the risk of information security breaches even for organizations who have “gone digital.” A security breach is a potential threat for all organizations regardless of size or industry. It is critical to assess your organization’s risk for a cyber-attack or a security breach, as well as its ability to protect and defend sensitive information. How prepared is your organization to deal with an information security breach?"

- Rising Risk
Zusammenfassung der AIIM der Studie "Information Security: Checking the Locks" vom August 2016
Information security risks must be managed to limit monetary losses, disruption of operations, legal forfeitures, and damages to reputation. While awareness to cyber-attacks and hacking are well understood, significant effort must be directed towards protecting against internal threats to information security. The key to ensuring information security begins with diagnosis. Ask yourself the following questions about your organization:
- How does security in your organization measure up to best practices in information security?
- Where are the zones (departments, software, devices) of highest risk for security breaches in your company?
- Do employees receive adequate training about their role in maintaining information security and its importance in mitigating risk and threats to the company?
- What holds security improvement projects back in your organization?
Watch this space for our follow-up installment titled “Information Security: Guard against Disaster,” and learn proactive measures you can take to protect your organization against a security breach.
Im zweiten Whitepaper zum Thema Informationssicherheit geht es um das Ereknnen und Bekämpfen von Lücken und Einbrüchen.
"In the wake of several high profile security breaches over the past few years, information security has rocketed to the top of enterprise to-do-lists. Risk and liability drive efforts to ramp up protection in an attempt to avoid consequences from a security breach. These consequences include lost revenue, critical files ending up in the wrong hands and intangibles like damages to brand, lost customer trust, or lowered reputation…"

- Proactive Protection
Zusammenfassung der AIIM in der Studie "Information Security: Staying Vigilant" vom August 2016
While it is impossible to eliminate the risk of a security breach entirely, a coalition of the three principles – technology, policy, and culture – is the best course of action to protect against this dynamic threat. Keep these best practices in mind when implementing information security processes to prevent security breaches:
- Assess your organization’s unique technology requirements before acquiring new information security solutions.
- Establish a continuous review cycle of security policies.
- Identify how your company can best cultivate a culture of security awareness?
- Have executive consensus and sponsorship when executing information security policy in your organization.
- Provide equal attention to both external and internal threats.
Der Wert der Information ist die entscheidende Frage, wenn es um Einrichtung von Lösungen, die Erschließung der Information als Wissen, die Bereitstellung in Prozessen und den Schutz der Informationen geht. Hioerzu wird der Begriff "Infonomics" eingeführt.
"If “information” is the currency of Digital Age, why don’t organizations manage their information assets with the same seriousness as their financial assets, their physical assets, and their human assets? Why is “Infonomics” such a difficult concept for organizations to grasp?"
Download bei AIIM: bit.ly/ValueInfo
- ELC June 2016 – Infonomics
- Conclusion #1 — Assigning a value to information assets is not as easy as it sounds.
Conclusion #2 — How you value information assets ultimately depends on:
1) the type of asset; and
2) how it is used.
- Conclusion #3 — “Infonomics” has potential as an umbrella term for this discipline, but is still largely not well understood in the user community.
- Conclusion #4 — The accounting profession may force the question of the valuing of information assets, but likely not any time soon.
"Introduction" der AIIM der Studie "Infonomics: How do you measure the Value of Information?" vom
It seems obvious: In an age of Digital Transformation, the information assets of an organization are increasingly THE defining source of organizational value. There is a growing gap between the traditional ways we value organizations — in terms of the tangible and intangible assets reported in financial statements — and the value the market puts on organizations. Over and over, in the face of the latest acquisition, we ask ourselves, “How on earth could company X pay so much for company Y?”
According to Doug Laney from Gartner, in 1975, on average
the tangible assets of a corporation represented 83% of its value. Today that number is 20%. As a result, over 50% of merger and acquisition exchanges can’t be accounted for.
The most recent example is the Microsoft acquisition of LinkedIn. We look at the accounting value of LinkedIn — $3.2 billion in revenues — and compare it to the price paid by Microsoft — $26 billion — and
shake our heads and wonder:
- Is this a signal of another dot-com bubble?
- Why is the accounting value of the company so different from the market value?
- Is Microsoft crazy? Or crazy like a fox?
I believe that the core of this disequilibrium lies in our inability to properly measure and value the information assets of an organization. And this inability is reflected not only in a growing gap between what we report about companies and what we inherently know about companies, but also in systematically undervaluing the investments that companies make in processes to optimize information, protect it, and utilize it to create customer value. Simply stated, if you can’t measure it, you won’t value it.
Das Thema Cloud und Mobile bewegt als Vision für die Zukunft des Büroarbeitsplatzes die Gemüter: ECM hat seine Zukunft in der Cloud. Gerade wenn Mitarbeiter an verschiedenen Standorten, zuhause, unterwegs, auf die gleichen Informationen, Dokumente und Prozesse zugreifen müssen, führt um die Cloud kaum ein Weg vorbei.
"Organizations are faced with the challenge of providing a flexible and secure environment supporting the agile needs of their remote workforce, partners, and clients. In fact, AIIM Research found that 30% of respondents are seeing increasing use of unofficial cloud content management and file shares. Only 5% indicated they have an “official” cloud-based option. 19% prevent access to non-approved sites."

"There’s a growing demand by and for employees to share and collaborate on documents with people inside and outside of their organizations. As a result, businesses must carefully assess their file sharing needs. From customers and vendors to constituents and auditors, information must be made available

"The financial sector has made great strides in digitizing the customer experience. Banking for instance, is a majorly digital affair for most day-to-day banking undertaken by the consumer. However, the internal processes of many banks and financial institutions lag behind in the world of paper and wet ink. While there are many reasons this occurs, what is of more importance than evaluating the cause is figuring out a solution to purge paper and create a digital workplace in our banks and other organizations in the financial sector."

AIIM Zusammenfassung des Whitepapers "Digital Revolution in the Financial Sector” vom September 2016
Breaking up with paper is hard to do, especially within finance and banking institutions. Information governance and ECM are essential for a paperless organization, but they are often costly, time consuming, and demanding of attention that many organizations don’t have the ability to give. In addition, financial contracts still rely on wet ink, traditional banking formalities are also wed to paper, and overall, people are reluctant to change. For these reasons, paper’s stronghold in the financial sector persists. However, paper free benefits are impossible to ignore, and given enough time and effort—as in the case with other industries—the financial sector will in turn shift in earnest towards a digital revolution. In the meantime, it is important to be adept at working in a digital workplace, and continue efforts to drive paper out of our organizations. Here are a few best practices to bring the fight to your organization’s paper:
- Change management is difficult. Involve all relevant parties and make sure to provide a forum for employees to freely voice concerns before any changes are made.
- Notice processes in your organization that can be fulfilled by digital alternatives. For example, infrastructure to support e-signatures can be a first step towards a more holistic paper free movement.
- Pushing paper out of the enterprise requires a clear strategy. Make sure to align people, process, and technology in a joint effort to drive paper out of your organization.
Paper Free – Are we there yet?
Am 4. November 2016 ist wieder #WPFD World Paper Free Day. Zur Einstimmung hat die AIIM ein Whiteppaer herausgegeben.
"Since the 1980s, we have been hearing about paper-free businesses and the drive to move toward a more digital workplace. At the time, the technology and people were not ready for this transformation. Today, the approach to digitally transform businesses has shifted from a technology first perspective to a more business centric approach, with paper-free processes becoming a focal point and opportunity for many organizations…"

Zusammenfassung des Whitepapers „HealthCare Information Security: Prevention is the Cure” vom 2016
Trust is essential for healthcare delivery. As information elevates its position as not only an enterprise currency, but a social one as well, patients understand that integrity, and confidence in the accuracy, completeness, and security of their medical records is paramount. Healthcare information management therefore is now more important than ever, and healthcare professionals need to be prepared to value and protect information assets to the best of their abilities. To aid with this call to action here are three things to consider when evaluating how best to manage healthcare information:
- When it comes to information governance in healthcare, executive support is essential, be sure to involve upper management and determine clear accountabilities for managing information.
- Investigate IG technologies such as ECM or paper free products like PDF that would best suit your organization’s culture and level of information governance maturity.
- Remember, information governance and ensuring data security is a continual process. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Or start simple and ramp up efforts overtime.
