SECURE DOCUMENT SHREDDING
Any modern business relies on data – electronic and printed records of customer details, suppliers, and employees. All of this data is an asset when it’s handled correctly, but it can become a liability when it’s not. All of this means that secure document shredding should be high on the list of operational priorities for any business wanting to keep their contacts, reputation and legal stance safe.
Data Management in practice
Setting a robust data management policy is one way to help minimise this risk. A regular schedule of data cleansing, coupled with clear policies understood by all staff, will make sure the data your company handles are kept much safer.
Create a regular clear out of old paper files and records you no longer need – not only will this keep your data safe, but it will also create a lot more space in the office environment too. Sensitive information needs to be treated with secure document destruction policies. This will help to safeguard against potential data breaches, fraud or identity theft to customers, employees or business partners. With punitive laws now in place to punish those businesses who fail to adequately protect the data they process, a significant data breach would be extremely bad news for your business.
