You Give Your Customers Peace of Mind. Let Us Give You Some.

Secure Shredding and Data Destruction Services for the Insurance Industry

As an insurance company or insurance broker, you provide your customers with the peace of mind that their assets are properly covered against loss, theft or damage. But above all, your relationship with your clients relies on transparency, confidentiality and trust.

Identity thieves have started to recognise that insurers possess large amounts of personal information about their customers, which is very attractive to fraudsters. 

Owing to many high-profile breaches, how insurance firms collect, store and destroy information is coming under increased scrutiny – especially since the introduction of GDPR – as your customers expect you to keep their private information safe and secure from the threat of a data breach.

Shred-it’s range of services from paper shredding to media and data destruction ensures the protection of confidential information, the safety of your business as well as compliance with GDPR.

Protect your data with our secure shredding services.

Not everything your organisation collects, stores, or handles is digital. When insurance policies are printed, or reports are circulated, they are at risk of getting into the wrong hands if they are not handled and disposed of properly and securely. For that reason, every insurance company is at risk of an information breach regardless of size, type, or location. But in an industry that relies on confidentiality, the reality is that many data breaches happen not just because of inferior firewalls or weak passwords, but because of employee error.

So, you may be doing everything you can but one member of staff casually dropping a resolved insurance claim into a recycling bin can undo everything. Don’t risk an information breach

In the insurance business, it’s a safe bet that every document you or your employees handle contains some form of confidential information. Whether its customer health records or property assessments, or your own financial forecasts and actuarial tables, you have a lot of information to secure.
