Are records management Companies a safe offsite storage solution

With many companies choosing to house their important and often sensitive documents offsite with a records management company, how do you know your documents are safe and secure?

Data Security

The question is, do you know your records are safe and secure stored at your own premises?

As recent as June 2015, companies around the world are being audited and found to be non compliant when it comes to storing sensitive data, including printed documents and also digital information too. So it is very important to make sure that as a business you are careful in the way you handle your data, and if you are looking to outsource, you need to be sure that the records management company you choose for your offsite document and data storage is safe and secure too.
