Firms need document safeguards


Firms need document safeguards

Daniel Thomas
Of the IT managers responding to this week's Computer Weekly/ Harvey Nash Big Question, only 61% said they were confident their company has sufficient document safeguards to avoid the problems suffered by the auditors of bankrupt US energy giant Enron.

Accountancy firm Andersen came under fire for deleting and shredding documents while acting as auditor for Enron. However, just 61% of the respondents in this week's survey said their company would be able to avoid similar problems when handling both internal and partner information.

"We do not rely on external support for document storage," said one IT manager who has safeguards in place.

"As we are under government regulations, we must file everything - no shredding permitted," said another.
