Wish your Web Site Form submissions could turn into PDFs?

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Would you like this work flow?

  1. People fill out forms on your web site
  2. They press “Submit”
  3. You get that submissions as PDFs that looks just like you need them to

It is simple; we find many organizations are looking for this because either:

  • Their people are used to processing documents that look a specific way — and if their web site submissions could look like the forms people are used to … then processing accuracy is improved and change is minimized
  • PDFs are a standard way of saving and archiving documents
  • Maybe you also want to collect a signature on your web form and have the PDF signed

Most web form processing solutions do not have the capacity to produce flattened, custom PDFs from your web form submissions; almost none can also do it securely, in a HIPAA-compliant manner.

How Secure are Password-Protected Files?

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

We recently discussed email security for accountants and mentioned that the use of password-protected files is not usually a very good solution for meeting data privacy needs.  After writing this and getting some feed back, we thought that the issue of password-protected files really deserves some further discussion.  Many people are under the assumption that if they use the “password protection” features of whatever software they are using, that their data is safe and secure.  However, this is not necessarily the case.  Why?

Using password-protected files to secure data is fast and easy and built into many applications.  Why not use it?  Certainly, password protecting files is much better than not doing so.  However, there are several things that determine how secure these “protected” files really are.
