Boards of Directors require effective communication to set the corporation’s goals and help it hit those targets. However, their communications also reveal confidential information, like privileged financial information, which could be damaging in the improper hands.

Secure communication between boards is essential especially in the current nature of business. To do that, boards need to adopt secure collaboration tools, such as board portals as well as real-time messaging platforms. It’s also important for boards to be able to track and analyze their own governance performance, which includes their approach to secure communication.

A portal for boards, for instance, which permits seamless transition between informal and formal communications channels, such as group chats, emails and texting is essential for secure communications. This type of software provides an anonymous, secure method to collaborate and share files. It also permits real-time discussion and sharing of files. It should include features that allow for granular control of access and deletion, as well as security protocols for encryption and backup.

A secure board portal is vital but equally important are safe instant messaging tools and meeting scheduling software. They should be easy to use and operate similarly to popular phone, texting and email applications. They should also come with additional security features, like the ability to blocking messages and preset contacts. They should also send automatic read notifications, and an “view-only attachment” option that prevents downloading screens, exporting, screen shots, and forwarding. In addition the backups should be backed up in remote, geographically dispersed locations to prevent the risk of losing data.
