Employee and client documentation:

It’s vital that the moving of personal data is carried out in a manner that’s sensitive and appropriate. Employers are expected to keep certain information private. Whether employees or clients, it’s important that none of their information is disclosed or readily available to those who are not permitted access to it.

For example, when moving a medical property to a new location, it’s essential that medical records are transported in a manner that would not result in patient details being lost, stolen, replicated or viewed by an unauthorized member of staff.
