Ensuring Data Remains Secure

As a business, it is almost certain that you will have confidential information that needs to be protected during your office move. In this quick guide, we take a look at what information types you may have and how to ensure these remain secure during your move thanks to plastic moving crates.

1 – Paper Files

Although in recent years there has been a move towards storing things digitally, it’s highly likely that you will still have confidential data printed out or written down within your office. Paper files can be difficult to secure as they can’t be encrypted or password protected so it’s vital that these files remain secure during your office move. For paper files and other important documents, we recommend using the Meter Lidded Crate which is one of our reusable plastic crates. This crate is the perfect size for paperwork and the built-in lid ensures that no paperwork falls out during your move.

2 – Digitally Stored Files

In today’s digital world, many important or confidential files are stored on disks or memory sticks. Due to the size of these components, they are easy to lose during an office move. At Easycrate, we recommend putting all your digital storage devices into a Standard Lidded Crate. This moving crate is smaller than the Meter Lidded Crate and will ensure all your disks are kept together.

3 – Computer Stored Files

Many important files will be stored on your company’s computers and servers. Although these will be protected by encryption codes and passwords, they can be made even more secure by using a Secure Roll Cage to transport them. By using this rental crate, you will not only be protecting the physical computer from damage, but a lock can be used on the cage to offer further protection.
