Understanding the Challenges in Data Security
The freight forwarding industry in Sydney, and indeed globally, is experiencing increasing challenges related to data security. With continuous cyber-attacks, security breaches, and misuse of business information becoming more common, the necessity for robust security measures cannot be overstated.
Recovering from such breaches is costly, both in terms of financial impact and damage to a company’s reputation. This underscores the importance of prevention rather than cure.
For this reason, aviation security is paramount and at BCR Seaway, we’ve taken all measures to ensure that all your goods are kept safe and protected.

BCR Seaway’s Approach to Ensuring Security
Centralised Cloud-based Data Storage
BCR Seaway utilises cloud-based systems for IT infrastructure. This not only streamlines data access but also ensures that data backups are performed regularly, granting controlled access, and reducing the chances of a security breach during data transfers.
Confidentiality of Documents
Shipping documents, rich in sensitive information about suppliers, prices, and business strategies, are handled with utmost confidentiality at BCR Seaway. Strict protocols are in place to ensure that these documents are accessed only by authorised personnel.
Advanced IT Systems
We have introduced TMS (Transport Management Systems) and other cutting-edge IT systems to ensure that all data is stored, managed, and transferred securely. Such systems allow encryption and secure access, ensuring that the data remains safe from potential breaches.
API Integration for Secure Data Transfer
Integration through API allows for a seamless and secure data transfer between our team and our supply chain partners, minimising data exposure and ensuring that information is exchanged safely.
Strict Data Policies
Every employee and service provider associated with us is governed by our strict data policy. This ensures that data is accessed and utilised solely for its intended purpose, reducing the risk of inadvertent leaks or misuse.
