How To Elevate Office Security | Invest In Secure Shredding
It is important that your business takes the precautions necessary to protect the personal and confidential information clients entrust you with. Without the proper security measures in place, private information can easily slip into the wrong hands. These wrong hands can use your client’s confidential information to commit any number of illegal activities, including fraud. Avoid the headaches, red tape, and possible lawsuits by investing in information security, including these three must-haves for a secure Charlotte office.
1. Clean Desk Policy
A CDP, or clean desk policy, ensures employees provide a professional impression to clients, but more importantly ensures confidential information is kept out of view from prying eyes and possible theft. A CDP requires employees to clear their desks of all papers, data, and other information when they are away, but it is advised that you enforce a clean desk policy at all times, whether your employee is at their desk or away.
2. Cabinets and Desks that Lock
It is important that in addition to a clean desk policy, employee’s desk drawers and cabinets containing personal client information have locks in place. Drawers and cabinets should be locked any time they are not in use. This additional level of protection helps ensure that confidential information is only accessible by authorized personnel at appropriate times.
