Document Shredding Services For Your Business
Businesses in this day and age need to put security first. Many business owners focus on cybersecurity, but when was the last time you considered what could happen if physical documents
and important papers fell into the wrong hands? It could be your own documents or even some
relating to your clients, but we all leave such a trail of information behind us these days that it’s
hard to be sure of security unless you arrange for proper disposal. A document shredding
service is a primary concern when thinking about data management.
Keeping Your Data Safe
It could be a good time to do some business spring cleaning and make sure that the records
and confidential items you deal within the course of your business are disposed of with a
shredding service you can trust. If you’ve been accumulating documents which contain things
like customer data you no longer need, you could even be in breach of international data law, as
well as posing a threat to your identity. Take the time to have a sort out. The documents you do
still need should be stored securely, and those that you no longer want to keep should be
disposed of with our shredding services.
Keeping It Confidential
Businesses generate all kinds of confidential waste in the course of their operations. Items such
as customer records, payroll data, personal address details or medical records are all protected
by law. The Data Protection Act is in place to safeguard all our information from being
incorrectly handled. If these documents are not disposed of with secure shredding, the
information in them can fall quickly into the wrong hands and be misused for unlawful gain. As a
business, it is your responsibility to ensure that this information is handled correctly and
disposed of securely. The penalties for not doing so include huge fines which could cripple your
business and untold reputational damage. More than that, we are all connected to organisations
as partners and customers who also handle our data, and we hope they use it well and dispose
of records carefully, so we must also do the same when it comes to our own data management.
Your business can benefit from different types of paper shredding. Commercial paper
shredding can remove your waste at scale and process it with the minimum of disruption. Our
document disposal solutions are also easy – simply place the documents you need to get rid of
in the sealed container and our operatives will collect it for disposal. Data security is a pillar of
integrity for your business and secure document shredding should be a big part of your strategy
around security. Keeping records or disposing of them for customers, suppliers and employees
carefully is great business practice. It’s easy to arrange and 100 per cent secure, so you have
one less thing to worry about.
