The uses of the digital certificate for the CEO, CFO, CHRO, CIO…
There are many uses of the digital certificate nowadays but all of them aim to securely prove your identity in the face of the processes and procedures that are carried out through the Internet. If we have a Digital Certificate, we will be able to sign and carry out procedures online, instead of doing them in person and with what this entails: time used and trips that are made. In addition, it will allow us to establish secure communications with public administrations that develop services over the Internet through the use of digital signatures. In this way, we will be able to carry out a multitude of procedures without having to go to the corresponding administration offices.
However, perhaps the most common uses of the digital certificate apply to the digital signature, thus guaranteeing the identity of the signatory and protecting the information contained in the document. In addition, they can be used to carry out authentication and encryption operations (emails, transactions, etc.). Which provide the following benefits:
- Greater agility in all administrative procedures.
- Being able to check on official processes 24/7.
- Not needing duplicate documents and not losing documents.
- For the self-employed, paying all your taxes (some are even required to be paid on-line), find out about repayments and delayed payment, view all tax and employment information.
- Been able to check any time the status of their government-related administrative processes, which has been critical element in the current scenario of subsidies, presentation of resources, and claims, processing of public aid to companies, etc.
- A Digital Certificate does not just provide the same certainty and reliability as a physical signature – it is better.
- Had all their information in dedicated up-to-date computer files
- Saved the cost of messengers and printing, which are themselves not very environmentally friendly.
