Contract Management Security and Data Privacy: What You Need to Know?

Contract Management Security and Data Privacy What You Need to Know 1 scaled

Do you know how fragile and exposed your data constantly is? A 2022 Data Breach Investigations report from Verizon shows that 82 percent of breaches involve human errors and misuse—also, 62 percent of incidents in system intrusion patterns involved the compromise of partners. Stolen or compromised credentials are the most common cause of a data breach and take the longest to identify. This attack vector can cost USD 150,000 more than the average cost of a data breach. Also, business email compromise stands at $4.89 million, and vulnerability in third-party software at $4.55 million.

Of course, no enterprise can afford to be negligent about these loopholes, especially when the average data breach cost is $4.35 million (as seen in the IBM 2022 Cost of a Data Breach report), more so when every hour counts a lot if it can shorten the data breach and response time even by inches. So, $1.12M is the average savings of containing a data breach in 200 days or less. 

How does data security work in contract lifecycle management (CLM)?

That is an excellent cue to remember that many opportunities and dangers hide in how you manage your contracts. When you approach contract lifecycle management with the posture of visibility, with the power of control, and the lens of transparency, you kill two birds with one stone. On the one hand, you improve the overall contract lifecycle efficiency and maximize the value of your contracts. But you also nip the bud of the demon called data breaches. You improve data security. You preempt espionage. You deter potential attackers. You defend your data well and early against any slight chance of theft, infiltration, and ransomware.

Contracts bring new people, processes, partners, and interfaces into an enterprise. When adding more hands to the deck, an enterprise can expose itself to new vulnerabilities and data-security chinks. Therefore, they must be overseen- and without any scope for negligence. 

But to do all this, you need to have a strategic and technology-led model for contract lifecycle management. Data security is not an afterthought but an imperative built sincerely and proactively inside every feature, every tool, and every outcome of the answer. For that you need a solution that can give you the following:

  • Granularity
  • Real-time visibility
  • Easy integration
  • Deep and thorough, control
  • Minimal roll-out time
  • Synchronization with other areas
  • Strong rigor on compliance
  • Fast auditing of CLM results and workflows
  • Sharp reporting of CLM aberrations
  • Easy but solid documentation
  • Intuitive and simple interfaces
