Protection for your business
Your business will no doubt produce many documents containing sensitive information, such as bank statements and employee payslips. In fact, it is common practice within most businesses that almost all staff members will print confidential documents daily.
This, however, has the potential to cause problems if not handled properly. Data in the wrong hands could lead to security costs of potentially millions of pounds, poor credit ratings, and a loss of trust between your business and your customers. There is the risk of not only exposing creative ideas and business strategies to your competitors, as well as revealing staff and supplier information to those looking to expose the information.
With corporate fraud and identity theft as the fastest growing crimes in the UK, it is essential for your business to make sure that you are doing all you can to protect your confidential documents and uphold all legal requirements surrounding them.
Compliance UK legislation aims to protect consumers and businesses against fraud, and it is being updated regularly to make sure that it does. UK law states that every business is trusted to keep information private, and customers and employees are entitled to their information being kept completely safe and confidential. Failure to do so is breaking the law, and can result in severe penalties for your business, up to £500,000.
