Relevant news articles

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work and execute business dealings. Digital companies have accelerated in this time and everyone agrees that we are not going back to the way things were before. Most people agree that they will travel much less with the wide acceptance garnered by digital meeting tools such as Zoom, Teams and Slack. Core income-generating activities and locations will need to be considered and adapted with restrictions in travel and general business operations. This will require more secure and digital tracking to sign documents and prove that the correct person signed the document and that they are who they claim to be online. Proof of identity and physical location is going to become a major concern for the signing and executing of electronic documents and is yet to be tested in court.
