Records Management Tip
In short, securely shred your business and personal paperwork. Why? Figures released this month from Cifas, a UK fraud prevention service, reveal that there were record levels of identity fraud in 2016. Figures from the West Midlands increased from 9732 in 2015 to 11,346 in 2016. Fraudsters rely on gathering personal information such as a victim’s name, address, date of birth etc. which they obtain through a variety of malicious activities, including stealing mail. Don’t make it easy for them by throwing your obsolete paperwork in the bin; shredding is the safe solution. Remember, Box-it Central offers both onsite and offsite secure document shredding services throughout Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Leicestershire and the West Midlands.
