A remote online notarization (RON) process adds an additional layer of security. Security is a major concern when using any digital offering, and the top RON technology providers put security at the forefront of their design and make sure their capabilities comply with applicable laws.

Errors and omissions insurance
Errors and omissions policies provide a great way to protect yourself from lawsuits by covering the costs of lawsuits resulting from errors you make as a notary. Even the smallest mistake can result in a lawsuit and can cost you a large amount of money. If you do not have this insurance coverage, you will be responsible for paying the costs out of pocket.
Errors and omissions policies cover unintentional acts up to the value of the policy. The coverage usually covers acts that occurred while the policy was active. This means that even if an error was made in 2010, the insurance policy will cover it as long as it occurred within the last three years.
Errors and omissions policies are available from all major commercial insurance companies. The price of this coverage varies depending on several factors, including the size of the business and the industry. However, the cost is usually not very high. Errors and omissions insurance policies can start as low as $19 per month. There are also discounts for multi-policy packages.
