Every year, organisations lose around 5% of their annual revenue to fraud. For small businesses without serious checks and balances in place this percentage can be even higher. The impact of fraud is something that has made a lot of headlines – financial cost, reputational damage and a loss of employee or customer trust are just a few of the consequences that can arise as a result.

Ransomware has become the most common way for cyber criminals to attack businesses. In fact, around 60% of ‘malware payloads’ are now ransomware. This type of threat can come in two distinct formats: ransomware that blocks access to systems and the type that encrypts files and systems and holds them hostage until payment is provided in return for a decryption key.
Disposing of documents safely is something that most businesses have become used to prioritising. There may be many different motivations for this but at the heart of them all there tends to be one overarching factor: respect. Over the past couple of years the importance of data has been underlined by new regulation and by the experiences of those who have suffered the very public consequences of a lack of data security. That’s why respect for data is now one of the main motivating factors in why companies partner with a shredding service.
