The New Fireproof Generation

Posted under Fireproof Records by Fireproof on August 16, 2017

It prides us that most employees across the entire organization have been with the company for at least a decade. It reinforces that family, culture and opportunity are elements that thrive at Fireproof. Many in our staff will agree that one of the biggest perks of being an employee at Fireproof is seeing their kids following their footsteps.

Each year the children of our employees will work in different departments when they are on break from school. Take a look at what our summer group had to say about working at Fireproof.

Mackenzie James – Daughter of CEO Mike James
“My favorite part about working at Fireproof is being able to spend a lot of time with my Dad every day. We ride to work together and get lunch together—I really cherish these times with him. I appreciate the way he runs this business and I admire everyone that works here. They are all a very important part of the puzzle that makes Fireproof such a successful company.”

Arika Sayer – Daughter of Operations Manager Mike Sayer
“I love working at Fireproof because of all the friendly people and the family feeling that you get when working here.”

Andrew Sayer – Son of Operations Manager Mike Sayer
“I love that everyone was so welcoming to me when I first came to Fireproof. They really helped me learn the ropes and how to be successful—everyone here is on the same team. It’s also great getting to work for my dad; I get to see the other side of him. It’s been a really good experience so far and I hope that I can continue to work here.”

Ally Rardon – Daughter of Human Resources Manager Barb Reardon
“I enjoy working at Fireproof because everyone is really nice. In addition, I get to work with my mom and eat lunch with her every day. Indexing for the company is really fun because I get to work with some great people.”

Austin Riggs – Son of CFO Mark Riggs
“I like working at Fireproof because everyone who works here gives 100% into their work. A lot is expected from us but everyone will support you in achieving those expectations. Besides that, the work environment is friendly and I feel like I have a second family every time I come to work. Everyone here is supportive and will always be there for each other no matter what.”



What Are The Points of Vulnerability in Your Health Care System?

It’s no secret that the healthcare industry is vulnerable to security breaches. Recently, there has been an increase in cyber attacks in the healthcare industry. The National Health Service in England and Scotland was affected by a ransomware attack in May, and Molina Healthcare recently suffered a patient portal security flaw that affected the information of 4.8 million patients. As a partner of all major hospitals in Central Ohio, Fireproof realizes security and medical records management is more important than ever in the healthcare industry. Here are a few key areas where your organization might be vulnerable.

Medical Devices
While medical devices are often overlooked — especially compared to devices such as laptops and phones — these can make your organization susceptible to cyber attacks. Monitors and machines may not always be top of mind when thinking  of your network, but they are computers and have very few security protections.

Medical Records
One of the most common threats to health care organizations are the medical record archives. Providing high quality medical care to patients is the main priority and organizations should be taking extra precautions when implementing data security for patient privacy and confidentiality. At Fireproof, we provide adequate measures for storing medical records and data that meets HIPPA requirements and ensures your organization is not vulnerable.

Outdated Technology
Investing in the most current technology can help organizations reduce their risk of security breaches. Smart technology and information management solutions will not only limit threats but will also increase efficiency and productivity.

Providing outstanding care to patients includes taking good care of their medical records and private information. Contact Fireproof to learn more about records management solutions.



3 Ways You Can Simplify Your Office

It can be difficult to get things done in the office when paperwork is piling up. We’ve all been there, spending far too many minutes searching for a memo or contract. The office should be a space that contributes to your success and workflow rather than a source of stress and disorganization. There are a few things you can do to simplify your work space to make it as productive and organized as possible.

  1. Digitize your documents: Convert your paper files to digital files and watch your desk become suddenly bare. Convert documents to PDFs and utilize a centralized portal to reduce the flow of paper in your office. This creates a simple, quick way to search for and access files whenever you need them.
  2. Declutter daily: At the end of each day, take some time to go through any misplaced papers or files remaining on your desk and store them in their proper place.  This way, you’ll return in the morning to an, organized energized work environment.
  3. Store data offsite: Running out of storage space in your office from overflowing files? Ask yourself if there are any documents, files, and data that could be stored offsite. Sort what needs to stay and determine which files are just creating clutter.

At Fireproof, we offer many solutions to help simplify and organize your office to reach maximize potential. Learn more about our services, including offsite storage, electronic document management, and more here.
