Confidential Shredding Companies

Not all confidential shredding companies are the same! Imagine what would happen if the information that your company stores gets into the wrong hands? Is this a risk your business is willing to take? According to CNBC, consumers lost more than 16 billion dollars to fraud and identity theft in 2016. In the UK alone more than 1 billion pounds was lost to cybercrime. Major data breaches have given cyber criminals access to names, birthdates, addresses and even social security and pension information.






Although shredding is not a legal requirement in the UK, taking steps to secure that sensitive data and information is. Every business has the responsibility to securely dispose of sensitive and confidential information, including client information, credit card receipts, personal files and staff payroll records, which are all likely to have information that could be used to steal identities.




Penalties of up to £500,000 can be issued if an organisation is found in breach of the Data Protection Act. Under this act, an organisation should not discard intact customer, staff or supplier information, and shredding offers the most environmentally friendly solution. The new European personal data regulations come into force in 2018, and companies should start to prepare now.
