Written signatures are still the most common form of document authentication.  With all the electronic communication of the modern world, documents are still typically printed and signed by hand to provide authentication.  So much so, that 80% of the documents printed by UK businesses1 are printed simply to sign them!

In this paper, we explore what digital signatures are, the benefits they offer and how to implement them in your document processes.


What you will learn:

  • how digital signatures are applied and used in the verification of documents
  • what the legal status of digital signatures is and certificates are used to support their acceptance
  • how to implement digital signatures when distributing documents electronically
