Paper assets, such as letters, HR documents, financial transactions, customer records, scientific reports, accounts and maps all contain sensitive information. Whether you are a large or small company here in the North East, you need to handle them correctly. Documents that contain confidential information, need to be kept safe by you for a certain length of time. Specific documents such as patient records and financial information, have specific retention periods and no matter where you keep your data – in filing cabinets, archived on-site or in off-site storage – at the end of that retention period, you must securely destroy that information.
This is where the services provided by a secure data shredding business like Restore Datashred are invaluable as you can trust us to completely destroy documents, reducing them into very small pieces that can be pulped and turned into recycled paper while providing a full audit trail including a Certificate of Destruction.
