Protecting sensitive corporate data and personal information is not only an expectation but a legal requirement. These types of documents are produced daily by businesses all over the UK and therefore are liable of data theft. In fact, last year the ICO reported that loss or theft of paperwork was the UK’s number one incident of identity theft, with a 33% increase within the first quarter of 2015 alone.
So why shred? Shredding eliminates the risk of data theft when outsourced to a secure shredding specialist like Printwaste. Here, your confidential waste is collected and dual shredded within 24 hours or alternatively have it shredded on your own premises using a mobile shredder. You’ll then be provided with a certificate of destruction for full confirmation.
Whilst this is considered the primary reason, the video below by the BSIA (British Security Industry Association) below offers more insight on the importance of secure data destruction. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbzTlxPs9S4
