Feds push for E-Records

Services for Real Estate Pros with Scanlon Signing Services

One of the biggest challenges to the widespread use of electronic notarizations is the slow pace of government agencies adopting digital recordkeeping technologies.But that may soon change as the federal goverment speeds up its plan to use e-records to replace the mountains of papers. The Obama Administration recently issued a memo directing federal agencies to start using electronic technologies to replace paper options. They must submit a plan outlining there efforts to adopt digital recordkeeping technologies. As more agencies embrace electronic recording and documents, the closer we are to electronic notarizations.

Lisa ~ This is really something to look forward to. (I really hope the implement it)  HUD, especially, needs to immediately jump on board. IMO they are the caboose of the train and really need to modernize the way they do things.

Electronic records may be useful, but data security is the big concern.  Lots of computers and hackers in the world that would like to break into a database for identity theft.  So many people use weak passwords that do not provide much protection from hackers.
