Myrtle Beach break-in results in lost files

December 19th, 2012 | Posted by Kevin Corley in Document Management

Businesses that house important files or documents are frequently at risk of file damage or destruction. There are various scenarios that could occur to a business that would result in lost or destroyed documents. Natural disasters, theft and misplacement can all send operations into a tailspin, and businesses should do all they can to protect files.

According to The Sun News, documents were stolen in a car break-in at a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, recreation center. Though the victim's information was not released, she told police officers that multiple South Carolina birth certificates and Social Security Cards were stolen.

This scenario is relatively common for businesses, If an employee misplaces files, or if documents in an employees possession are stolen, a firm could be held legally liable. This could also affect the company's reputation, and future revenue.

To avoid the loss of documents' information should files be stolen or otherwise go missing from offices, many corporate leaders should think about using conversion services. These tools capture images of documents and place the pictures in an online database, preserving the data.
