Here is just one example of what could happen if your data is not dealt with securely, this example is from the Guinness Book of World Records;
This is the record for the largest release of classified documents, a website called WikiLeaks aim to publish private documents from media and other sources.
In October 2010 this website released 400,000 documents which related to the Iraq War, this was called the largest leak of classified documents in history by the US Pentagon. This was followed by a release of a further 220 confidential and diplomatic cables in November 2010 with a promise of more to follow!
Great embarrassment was caused to the official circles around the world due to the frank and detailed nature of the comments made. After this leak a US Army Corporal was held under investigation with suspicions to his involvement in the leak.
It is hard to store all your documents in one place in your office, and this isn’t always the safest and most secure option. This is why you may want to consider using a secure document storage company.
