One of the broadest application fields of information-communication technologies (ICT) is clerical work. Beginning in the 1990s, the application of computer systems in electronic document management allowed clerical work to be performed electronically with the application of information technologies (IT). This article describes the security issues of these systems, which have become an important factor in the solution of management issues. The main factors necessitating the security of electronic document flow systems are identified, the classification of threats is reviewed, and the main security issues are explored. Last, the technologies for security maintenance in those systems are analyzed (pp. 42-49).
