It could be a customer’s home address or bank account details, or even a medical file that is sent to several hospitals. This could include employee records shared with government agencies or payroll companies for a variety of reasons.

As a result, ensuring that confidential data is properly identified and handled at all times is essential to reduce the chance of security breaches when transferring sensitive information. This is even true when your team needs to collaborate with a partner who is not familiar with your security important site protocols.

Make sure that everyone handling confidential data is adequately trained in the policies of your initial onboarding and continue to receive updates throughout their time at the company. This will enable them to make better decisions when confronted by new information.

To protect against unintentional access to confidential information, ensure that everyone who handles sensitive electronic files is identified individually by a unique password. In addition physical files should be stored securely in a locked safe or file cabinet, and only couriers with confidentiality protocols can handle them.
