When moving items securely in a chain-of-custody, you are following a time honoured process, dating back to the 13th century, for sealing sensitive information and valuable items in a way that provides and indication that somebody has open or interfered with the item.
Tamper Evident vs a Padlock
If you needed to secure items in transit, you might think twice next time before using a padlock. The point to the chain-of-custody is that you and the receiver know somebody has accessed your sensitive items and the trouble with using a padlock is that it can be picked, opened and closed again without showing any evidence of access. Sensitive documents could then be read in a letter, unnoticeable amounts of money could be removed from a till drawer, it can affect many organisations around the world and still does today, with traditional lock and key solutions.
Versapak have been manufacturing secure, tamper evident storage and transport products since 1973. Our Security Solutions and Medical Solutions offer key industries the ability to store and move their items in a tamper evident manner, so that if a sensitive solicitor document is read, or blood as been accidentally or maliciously tainted, you would know. That is the Tamper Evident security that offers something that cannot be replaced by the biggest locks or the toughest safe; it offers you peace-of-mind that nobody other than yourself 'the Receiver' has had access.
