Legislation provides explicit directives on how personal data is to be handled. The data must be protected from unauthorised access at any time, and it must be safeguarded against alteration and loss, including at the time of records archiving and ultimate disposal (destruction). In addition to records containing personal information, there are also many more highly sensitive documents that need to be handled in everyday office practice and whose storage is governed by law. These include customer contracts, research and development documents, medical records / patient files, insurance files, credit files and many more items containing sensitive information. In light of this huge array of security-relevant information, it is indispensable for any organisation to proactively address the risks associated with data processing and storage and to ensure legal compliance. All data must be evaluated individually; only in this way can the appropriate measures for storage and management be determined on a case-by-case basis.
