CAS, The Fort Knox of Document and Data Storage Facilities
Data and document security is such a hot topic that I wanted to write a few words about the importance it holds for us at CAS. I’m sure that every company will say that they take security seriously — but for us it’s actually the main focus of our business — securely storing, digitising or disposing of confidential records and documents. We are the trusted partner of NHS Trusts, financial services organisations and a whole host of small and enterprise level companies.
Why do they trust us?
Because we continually strive for the highest levels of security. Our secure document and data storage facilities have gated perimeter fences, 24/7 security patrols and advanced CCTV. Our gate staff require identification for anyone entering the facility and only authorised personnel are admitted. Even I have to show my ID to get in!
Environmental controls and advanced fire protection systems are fitted throughout. We have a dedicated fleet of GPS-tracked vehicles to control all document transport to and from storage. Of course, we are also fully compliant with the Data Protection Act 1998.
I also ensure that all of our document-handling staff have been checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). DBS is the new name for the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and DBS checks have now replaced the old CRB checks.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
We recently introduced Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), this is one of the most advanced systems to track clients’ documents and provides new levels of accuracy and efficiency far beyond standard barcode management. RFID asset tracking means faster, more cost-effective report generation. It also enables comprehensive audits to be performed in close to real-time with 99.999% accuracy. Our RFID systems support strict compliance regulations — including UK and EU privacy requirements and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) — by providing customers with audit reports that confirm and validate the location of every RFID carton in storage.
Gold standard accreditation
Our commitment to excellence is demonstrated by our accreditations, we are certified in four critical areas:
