High security as standard
We know that the security of your documents and data is of paramount importance. It’s something we would never compromise, and we’ve invested heavily in our facilities, processes, security systems and staff training to ensure we maintain the highest levels of security at all times.
Our confidential data and document storage facilities are protected in several ways to ensure optimum protection against fire and theft. To date there have been no incidences of fire or burglary, and no breaches of security.
All our warehouses are standalone facilities and are flood and fire resistant and temperature and humidity controlled. Fire detection systems, designed in conjunction with a fire safety consultant and our insurer, are fitted at each site and are linked to local fire stations via BT’s Redcare service.
Our sites are as secure as possible against theft, burglary, vandalism, terrorism and other criminal acts. They are protected by intruder alarms, linked to police stations via Redcare, as well as 24-hour CCTV and webcam. Buildings are entered via a Paxton-controlled door-entry system and can only be accessed by our fully vetted and DBS-checked staff. All visitors are accompanied onsite and all contractors must go through our contractor management system.
All our team members go through rigorous security checks to comply with BS 7858. Before a candidate is employed, we ask them to provide proof of identity and three references, as well as undertake a DBS check and a ten-year career history check.
We never use third-party couriers to make collections or deliveries. Instead, we use our own DBS-checked drivers and a customised fleet of secure vehicles. Our mobile shredding machines are mounted onto MDX-1 lorries, which are considered to be the most secure vehicles in the world and are approved by both SEAP and the Ministry of Defence.
