A Digital signature is a virtual identity instrument that uses Public Key Infrastructure encryption. A digital signature helps the creator of a digital document, message, or software, prevent unwanted users from tampering or impersonating him/her.
It utilizes an algorithm, between a public and private key, to encrypt information. Whenever a message is sent from the signer to the recipient, the signer uses a private key to encrypt the message and the recipient uses the signer’s public key to decrypt the message.Read more in detail about how a digital signature works here!
An electronic signature may, in many countries, hold the same weightage as a handwritten signature. But given the rapid advancement in cybercrime, it requires a more complex form of signature.
A digital signature will provide the needed security and proof of identity through public key encryption, timestamping capabilities, and the validation from a Certificate Authority or Trust Service Provider.
Whether its transactions, laws, budgets, or contracts, everything is going digital. Official documents such as these have severe consequences if tampered by the wrong or unwanted people. Digital signatures help ensure that these documents are only handled by the right government officials and records the person that edited that specific version.
Data collected in the healthcare industry are often confidential information from patients and doctors. Data such as these should only be handled by authorized personnel and digital signatures help to keep track of the people who have accessed the information and encrypt the data.
In the line of work, documentation processing speeds need to be as fast as it can be. Documents can be approved and signed much faster if they are all handled digitally rather than via hardcopy. Digital Signatures will help make this process secure and efficient.
The manufacturing industry requires close collaboration between multiple stakeholders within and outside of business. Digital signatures help to speed up transactions between the various parties while maintaining an elevated level of security and accountability.
From design drafts and blueprints, to invoices, even to marketing and sales materials, digital signatures can connect teams from various departments and locations to speed up approvals, transactions, and other document transfers.
From Banking, Wealth Management, to Insurance, documentation is often the tool that is used to manage transactions between parties. Regardless of how much each transaction is worth, security is of paramount importance. Cyber security is one of the biggest risks in the banking and FinTech space and one way to help keep online/digital transactions secure is through digital signatures.
