Safeguarding customers’ belongings AND their data: The cyber security measures at blue self storage

In the age of grave digital threats, cybersecurity has become paramount for protecting both physical possessions and sensitive customer data online.

At blue self storage we recognise the significance of security across all aspects, ensuring the safeguarding of our customers’ valued belongings and shielding their data from any online risks.

Our reputation is built on our dedicated efforts to guarantee the safety of both customers’ possessions and data, and we are proud to provide high-level security measures that exceed industry standards.

What is cyber security?

Cyber security is the practice of defending digital systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks or unauthorised access. It encompasses strategies and technologies aimed at preventing breaches, data theft, and disruptions that could compromise the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of information.

Challenges the self storage industry faces in cyber security

The self storage industry faces unique challenges in terms of cyber security. Like many others in the sector, we encounter vulnerabilities in online systems used for reservations, payments, and storing customer data.

Often, people are unaware that even seemingly trivial information can be valuable to cyber attackers when amassed in large volumes.

Why it’s important to opt for a self storage facility with cyber security measures in place

Customers often prioritise physical security when selecting a storage facility, overlooking the importance of cyber security. However, the personal information they entrust to the company can be a prime target for cybercriminals.

A breach could lead to identity theft, financial loss, and privacy violations. By choosing an operator like blue self storage, customers can be assured that their data is as secure digitally as it is physically, offering peace of mind and comprehensive protection.

While the physical security of belongings is a crucial factor, the significance of cyber security cannot be understated.

Our commitment to both on-site and digital security ensures a holistic approach to safeguarding customer interests.

Customers should prioritise cyber security in the same vein as on-site security when selecting a self storage facility to ensure the utmost protection of their personal information and belongings.
