As Corporate ID fraud continues to rise, GDPR compliance is a legal requirement in the workplace. Now is the time to get your shredding game up to speed.

Secure filing will help avoid ID fraud

If your business still needs to keep paper records then invest in the right secure filing system. A locked cabinet is the very least you can do, a small key is enough to deter some criminals.

Better yet place the cabinet in a secure office that is locked with limited access by staff and outside parties.

Digital Filing

We could fill a whole blog post about the dos and don’ts of digital filing.

ID Fraud

Some things to consider are;

Strong firewalls, VPN for outside access and secure offsite data storage. Scheduled virus and malware scans, secured wireless networks and more.

If there is no one in your business who has specialist knowledge in this, then link in with a third party to help you cover all the bases.

Strong Passwords

An oldie but a goodie, now we all know that 1234 or PASSWORD are not viable options anymore. However, the name of your pet, the date of your firstborn can be easily swiped even in an office environment.

Not only that but how many employees have their passwords written down, in or on their desks? Make sure everyone is following the same strong password procedures and isn’t using a handy post-it reminder attached to the back of their screens!


With any paperwork no matter how limited the information might be on there it’s always best to get shredding. Remember criminals may scour the bins and piece together bits of different information.

Shredders come in all shapes and sizes. It can be difficult to narrow down which one is suitable for you.
