Shredding Security with Acco

An effective paper security policy for fraud prevention

Identity crime is becoming increasingly common in today’s open environment, with criminals gaining access to sensitive information both on and off-line. From acquiring stolen personal information, criminals can clone your identity, and subsequently open new bank accounts, take out loans in your name, tamper with sensitive documents, or purchase items on your behalf, at a great cost to you. It can also cause serious harm to your personal and professional reputation.

The UK’s leading fraud prevention service, Cifas, has released new figures in April 2018, reporting that identity fraud is continuing to rise, hitting an all-time high of 174,523 cases in 2017[1]. Therefore, fraud prevention measures are vital, and must be in place to prevent you falling victim.

Shredding is one method that is particularly important for fraud prevention in environments that hold sensitive physical documentation. Auto Feed shredding is an effective method in preventing fraudulent activity from stolen physical documents, protecting your business and employees from identity fraud, avoiding fines and potential legal action, especially in a GDPR era.
