If you handle confidential records at your premises, you need a reliable document shredding service.
Your business deals with highly confidential data every day – and you have a responsibility to keep your customers, employees and your business safe from identity theft or data breaches. A document shredding policy is a key part of this.
A data breach could mean bad publicity, lost customers and lost business. And with increasingly stringent data protection legislation being introduced in 2018, you could face a heavy fine too.
Shred all, shred regularly
Experts recommend adopting a ‘shred all and shred regularly’ document destruction policy within your organisation. This approach avoids human error or poor judgement about what really needs to be destroyed. It also ensures that unwanted documents aren’t stored for lengthy periods, or allowed to build up until you don’t really know what documents you’re holding.
At some point you’ll need to dispose of your confidential documents, both securely and correctly. Document shredding is the one of the most secure methods of data destruction available.
How we can help with document shredding
We shred documents for companies of all sizes, working with them on a regular, ad-hoc or one-off basis.
We can supply you with lockable bins and containers for your offices, giving your employees a simple, secure and error-proof way to collect documents for disposal.
Once your bins are full, we’ll collect them in our secure vehicles and transport them to our state-of-the-art shredding depots. We also have a fleet of vehicles for shredding documents on-site, giving you additional peace of mind.
Safe and secure
Whatever you need in terms of security and compliance, we can provide it. We use cross-cut shredding as standard, which reduces paper to confetti. If required, we can even shred documents down to dust with our high-security shredding service.
Our vehicles all have sealed bodies and CCTV, and are continuously tracked via GPS. Our secure, purpose-built shredding facilities are equipped with 24-hour CCTV, secure perimeters and strict access controls, and all our employees must go through security checks in line with BS7858.
This high level of security allows us to work with clients who have the strictest security requirements, such as public-sector organisations, government bodies, banks, financial institutions and legal firms.
