Restore Datashred News

Restore Datashred is one of the UK’s leading secure shredding services providers.
/ Categories: September

Restore Datashred is one of the UK’s leading secure shredding services providers.

Whether in the office or remote working, or a blend of the two, using a professional shredding business like Restore Datashred is the final, fundamental piece in the correct management of both your reputation and your customers’ confidential information. Perhaps your organisation produces vast quantities of cardboard fibre you need to get to a reputable recycler or uniforms you don’t want anyone to get their hands on because of the risks of impersonation, or old hard drives that contain sensitive data.

Whatever format your confidential materials take, it’s fundamental to take special care of their end-of-life stage because risk management is key to fully complying with GDPR and DPA 2018. Keeping your customers’ and employees’ information safe and secure throughout its lifespan is a large responsibility and we work closely with you to make sure we maintain an audited, unbroken chain of custody right through to your receipt of a certificate of destruction that confirms every shred transaction.

It’s also fundamental to your bottom line. If you are currently recalibrating your business, for example, to accommodate permanently less office space and more remote working, you may well need to conduct an audit of all documents you hold in off-site storage – with particular reference to retention and disposal guidelines being met; empty out on-site storage rooms, product archives and obsolete marketing collateral. Rather than throwing it in a recycling bin or into a normal waste bin, it’s safer by far – not to mention a legal requirement – to have all redundant and old material securely and professionally shredded.

Increasingly, too, the reason to securely shred materials is one that focuses on our impacts on the world around us. Yes, Restore Datashred is a major recycler of all the materials that we process – we are currently shortlisted for Let’s Recycle’s 2020 Paper Recycling Business of the Year award – and we produce an environmental report for you after every shred that shows the amount of water and number of trees you have saved by choosing our processes, along with CO2 savings. Over and above these positives, however, is the knowledge that you are doing business with a company that takes helping you meet your CSR commitments seriously and is a strong message for you to take back to your business stakeholders.

So, why use Restore Datashred for carrying out what is your legal requirement? Quite simply, for our customer service, our professional and knowledgeable approach to security and compliance, and our push for sustainability.
