We cannot believe it, but ID theft still happens

We are glad that Topwood ensure all staff are professionally trained and are fully vetted. Terrible news about the fraud investigation surrounding a man who worked for a document shredding company and who did not destroy bank records but instead shared them with thieves, according to court documents. 

 

There are three easy measures to ensure this does not happen:

  1. All contracted staff handling confidential information should CRB checked and are fully vetted to BS5878. This ensures that there are no untrustworthy connections, associations or obvious motives to defraud – Our staff are fully vetted
  2. Companies disposing of confidential information should request or be encouraged to request onsite document shredding for total peace of mind – We offer this to all customers
  3. Shredding companies should have an information security policy to ensure to minimise the opportunity for the leakage of confidential information - We have a security policy

Above all Topwood ensure that all staff are trained, highly motivated and rewarded for their commitment to our business and consequently this removes any motive to defraud.
