With yet another large data breach occurring this month, (March 2023) we would like to confirm our continued commitment to cyber security.
We value your privacy, and with verification of identity (VOI) a legislated requirement for land transactions, we must collect some very sensitive and important data from you, our clients.
In order to prevent data theft, we only keep hard copies of the VIO documents. We store these documents in a fireproof vault, with the wills, EPA’s, title deeds and other important documents.
Our practice management software has the capacity to store the VOI data electronically, we choose not to use it. This decision is both conservative and sensible, and is a little more time consuming.
Most importantly of all, our decision to keep your personal identification documents away from our file servers and the internet, keeps your personal identification documents safe.
