Thoughts on document security

Postby ian » Mon Feb 10, 2014 12:25 pm

Setting the access rights for documents can be important for your business. Some organisations are able to have an open policy, but this not always an option.
The security of a document is set by either the location stored or by the user creating the document. These two approaches have advantages and disadvantages. Setting rights by location is perhaps simple, but does not offer fine control. There is an argument that the person creating the document is best placed to decide who should have what rights to the document.

Net-Cabinet offers control of access by both User and Groups providing a flexible set of tools. For each document the rights to Read, Write and Delete are able to be set. By default a new document is set to allow full access for the Owner (yourself) and all members of the Administrators group and any group that you are a member of. Read and Write permission are then provided for all users. This is a good starting point for permissions. Permissions can be modified from this starting position.

Net-Cabinet is a simple Electronic Document management System (EDMS) is a file management system that allows documents to be tagged with keywords so that they can be found later. If a document belongs with two projects or more than one customer or supplier, no problem. Also documents are automatically tagged by when you last accessed them so you can find the documents you worked on yesterday. It is so simple to use and so natural.
