Security Checklist for Evaluating E-Signatures

Security Checklist This security checklist lists the top security requirements and best practices to consider when evaluating e-signature solutions.

Due diligence around security means going beyond security audits and certifications. Use this checklist to prompt vendors to answer questions like:

  • How do I know who e-signed a document?
  • How are customers’ e-signatures protected? Can they be copied into other documents?
  • How easy is it to verify whether an e-signed record has been tampered with?
  • How can I be sure my customer data will be protected?
  • Are the e-signed records and audit trails truly vendor independent?



  • User identity and authentication
  • Document security
  • Signature security
  • Cloud and data security
