Tear-up identity theft:

"Throwing paper in the office recycling bin where anyone can     see the data on it, just won’t cut it.”  Will Mellor


How to stop your customers' personal data from falling into the wrong hands

Actor Will Mellor had his identity stolen in 2022.  “It was a complete nightmare and caused no end of trouble" said Will. "I completely understand why a majority of people are worried that their personal information could get stolen – especially when it’s being held by a business, and we have no control over how it is stored or destroyed."

Shred-it's latest survey result of 2,000 UK consumers shows that 53% of respondents worry that criminals could get hold of the personal information they share with companies and, worryingly, 37% are concerned that a company employee may steal documents containing personal data.

Teaming-up with Shred-it, Will is raising awareness about the importance of customer data and how to help protect against identify theft.

Following these few simple steps can ensure your customers' information is better protected. And when at home it's equally important that you store your documents securely, shred anything containing personal information, destroy expired credit cards, always use strong passwords - and be careful when using public Wi-Fi!

When you're dealing with personal data on a daily basis, deciding what to destroy can be a challenge, and with personal information becoming more and more valuable, it's your business' reputation that's on the line.
