How our data shredding services can help your business in the North East

Why shred data? Simply put, in the era of GDPR and heightened corporate social responsibility (CSR), secure data shredding helps you dispose of your business’ confidential information in the most responsible and sustainable ways possible.

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.

Similar advisory regulations apply to digital media such as data on hard drives, CDs and DVDs. One of the most reliable ways to destroy that data is by engaging a professional data shredding company like Restore Datashred whose powerful, modern shredding machines reduce items into tiny fragments that we then send to be recycled.

But why is professional destruction of data so important?

In a word: compliance.

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has highlighted the need for all businesses, wherever they are located, to handle information responsibly. GDPR is very clear about the risks and penalties of poor data handling and protection, and disposing of assets at the end of their shelf life carries a substantial part of that risk.

So while it’s wholly admirable to use a recycling service for paper and discs, it’s a much safer bet to make sure you have secure data destruction processes in place. These processes should help protect your business and your customers from data breaches – caused by both human and computer error – that have the potential to create lasting reputational and financial damage if you get it wrong.
