Restore Datashred is now a compliant Service Level Provider PCI-DSS

For a datashredding business that leads the way in customer service excellence and top-level security, here at Restore Datashred we’re pleased to announce that we have added another accreditation to our roster. So – ta dah! – we are now fully compliant with the Service Provider level of PCI DSS at our major depots in London, Manchester and West Yorkshire.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (for that’s what it is) is a set of security criteria designed to make sure that all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.

This means that we are proven to meet the highest standards in handling and destroying your cardholder data, whether paper or electronic.

And it’s not a one off.

Unlike many other accreditations, the PCI DSS Attestation of Compliance must be re-applied for every year. Hard work for us, but great news for you, and for your cardholder customers, as all our systems and processes for keeping your data guaranteed secure must be scrutinised at least once every 12 months. It keeps us on our toes, while providing you with full peace of mind.

And that peace of mind from doing the right thing for the data that you are responsible for is so important.

Security breaches in payment card transactions are a frequent occurrence – we’ve all read about them, maybe even experienced them. Fraudsters target the weak links in the payment chain to steal data such as card numbers, security codes and customers’ personal information. By working with a PCI DSS-accredited high-security business like Restore Datashred, where we take every step to ensure we are NOT the weak link, we help you protect your customers and your company, responsibly.

Our security measures include:

  • secure, lockable on-site paper and media bins and cabinets
  • on-site mobile shredding vehicles, including a brand new Shred-Tech MDX-3 with its vastly superior capabilities, where you can watch, and check, your material as it tips on to the shredder blades and is reduced to minute fragments in moments
  • DBS-checked drivers and secure collection operatives
  • high-security on-site entry protocols and round-the-clock CCTV and monitoring
  • full electronic file and asset tracking, and electronic audit trails
  • promptly supplied certificates of destruction
  • ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management.

At Restore Datashred document shredding, we are backed by our strong company values, and we take pride in offering you the service, scale and efficiency you need to get the most secure results possible for your business, wherever you are in the UK. Get in touch with us for more information.
