Why You Need a Regular Paper Shredding Service


Keeping your confidential business information safe is extremely important. It has been reported that the average cost of an information breach can cost in excess of £2.4M in lost customers, revenue, and fines in the UK each year. This is why your company needs to employ a regular paper shredding service to securely dispose of confidential business waste once it comes to the end of it's useful life.


Keeping confidential information safe


Confidential business information most often falls into the wrong hands because it is not handled correctly in-house. Businesses have a legal requirement to hold onto specific business records for a minimum of six years before they can dispose of it. Once your documentation reaches the end of it's useful life, it needs to be destroyed safely and securely. A lot of company files and paperwork expire each year, and to prevent it from cluttering up your office and taking up valuable workspace, it pays to have your expired paperwork securely shredded.

Many businesses in the past have not taken enough steps to ensure the safe disposal of expired documentation. It is a sad fact that many company owners and managers see their expired data as worthless, therefore they don't take appropriate steps to dispose of it in a secure manner. This has resulted in a substantial amount of expired company records being insecurely dumped rather than shredded and recycled.

You need to remember that even expired company paperwork can still contain very valuable information that can be utilised for criminal use. Personal information can be used to commit identity fraud and when traced back to the source of the information breach, can cause your business untold damage.
