Physical management is a necessary and important part of any comprehensive data strategy. Risks can be high where physical data is not being carefully managed and the consequences of this range from fines for breach of regulations such as the GDPR to long-lasting reputational damage. Particularly if you’ve invested time and effort in ensuring that your digital information is being properly and securely processed it’s essential to apply this same approach to physical data too.

Confidential healthcare records are incredibly sensitive documents in data terms. That’s why they are increasingly being targeted by thieves and hackers. In fact, according to the Information Commissioner’s Office, in one year there were more data breaches in the healthcare sector than any other. Medical identity theft is increasingly becoming a problem in the UK – personal details can be used to fake prescriptions and acquire medication that can be sold illegally, for example.
Data protection has risen to the top of the agenda in the past couple of years. Thanks to regulatory change, such as the GDPR, it’s now more important than ever before for businesses to implement secure processes for data handling. Physical documents and files present a serious risk of data breach if not properly processed and disposed of – for many organisations avoiding such a situation means ensuring documents are shredded once they are no longer required.
