How safe are your documents from Storms and Persistent flooding.

With December being recorded as one of the wettest in history, North England was fraught with floods over Christmas and New Year after Storm Eva and Storm Frank brought with them dangerous rising waters. Given the already saturated ground, and continued rain forecast, are you aware of the damage flooding can do to your documents?

DataSpace provide Critical document protection. Why not move your important documents from your shed/garage and store them with us where they will be safe from flooding and the added piece of mind that we can store them compliantly. If your documents are not safe you could be breaching the Data Protection Act and be risking your businesses reputation!
