No matter how large your office, we recommended using a regular business shredding service to make sure you comply with data protection law. Our tailored service works for every size of firm, from SMEs to larger organisations and multi-site enterprises.
By scheduling a regular collection for the secure destruction of confidential data, you can avoid any uncertainty over how long it should be kept when it is no longer required.
The General Data Protection Regulations in 2018 are the biggest reform to data protection law in two decades. Under the new regulations, potential fines for a data breach have been significantly stepped up. That’s why every business is being encouraged to urgently review its data destruction processes.
If you’re not yet up to speed with the new legislation, read our article ‘Twelve ways you can start preparing for GDPR right now’.
Secure bins and containers
When you choose our regular shredding service, we’ll provide secure containers to store your confidential data, free of charge. We deliver the containers to your office(s) and arrange regular collections to suit you. You can see the choice of containers on our bins & containers page, or just call one of our business shredding specialists for advice on the best option for your business.
Mobile or off-site business shredding
With our business shredding service you have the choice of mobile shredding at your premises or off-site shredding, where confidential data is securely transported from your office for shredding at one of our high security depots.
Identity and data thieves are more active than ever. A data breach could jeopardise your business’s reputation and land you with a large fine. Can you afford not to make secure document disposal a priority?
Data protection law
Data protection law applies to any personal data, kept in any format, including paper documentation and electronic media. It also applies to staff records, as well as customer data and payment details.
To make sure you’re meeting your data protection requirements, learn more about clear-desk policies and other important steps you can take in our article on best practices for safeguarding your confidential data.
Uniform and product shredding
We can protect you in other important areas beyond the requirements of data protection law. Your business can be at risk from corporate identity theft and espionage. Alternatively, your reputation could be damaged by out-of-date products ending up on the black market, or someone maliciously impersonating your workforce. Our product destruction service helps to safeguard your brand and reputation.
Don’t need a regular service?
Some businesses assess their requirements and decide that they don’t need a regular shredding service for paper, electronic media or products. We can still help with a one-off shredding service, either mobile or off-site, to help with special requirements such as office moves or occasional office clear-outs.
