The many Benefits of Secure Shredding for your Business

Regardless of the business that you are in, you will be keeping records and documents that contain a lot of sensitive data, whether that is your employee information or the personal details of your business customers. You are obliged by law to keep this information secure and private at all times.

Even when your stored files and paperwork have reached the end of their useful life, you cannot simply discard them in your general waste or local authority recycling waste bin for processing. Doing this would risk exposing sensitive information about individuals – either customers or your own staff – where their identity can be stolen and used to scam the individual out of a lot of money and destroy their credit history.

Data breaches are taken very seriously by the government, so even when a piece of paperwork holds no further value to your company, in the hands of a criminal it can be incredibly valuable. It is your responsibility to prevent sensitive data collected by your company from falling into the wrong hands. Failing to do so can bring your business severe penalties that your company may never recover from.

Secure Shredding Solution

While at home, we may be content to shred our own household letters and paperwork using a standard off the shelf home shredder. However, when running a business that handles a lot of sensitive information, it would be wise to employ professional secure shredding to handle your business confidential waste.

Restore Datashred offer a well-established and trusted document destruction service where we can come out to your business premises to conduct on-site secure shredding, or alternatively, if you lack the available space to accommodate our shredding vehicles, then you can choose our off site secure shredding services.

Whichever service suits your business the most, either on-site or off-site secure shredding will involve a highly secure procedure that ensures the complete destruction of your confidential data for your peace of mind.

Let's take a look at just some of the benefits of using Restore Datashred secure shredding services:

Your employees have better things to do with their time than to stand and shred your confidential waste.
