Identity Theft - For Your Eyes Only?
As well as recycling your newspapers - hopefully with Houghton’s Waste Paper - you may well be reading the business pages inside them and already aware of the dangers of identity theft as one of the fastest-growing UK business crimes.
Estimates of costs to the UK economy are up to ₤1.72 bn a year with identity fraud losses made up from the usual suspects (such as counterfit, lost or stolen credit and bank cards; money laundering and identity-related fraud in the telecoms and retail sectors) but increasingly it is small, owner-managed businesses and family-run companies that can be hit the hardest.
Private and confidential information is ending up in the wrong hands – and we are not just talking about your local competitors – so how can you ensure that your business data is being disposed of securely and that it is not your company name that ends up in the business pages as another victim of corporate identity theft?
As a business you may think you are not affected by this invidious crime but why take the risk? Identity theft is now a highly organized business itself and shredding is just one simple way to ensure your business protects its sensitive information and employees’ personal information.
Why not talk to Houghton’s Waste Paper Security Destruction?
Our name says all you need to know about the secure destruction of confidential waste paper and our free Security Audit will review your existing procedures for the collection, destruction and disposal of confidential material under secure, controlled conditions.
