The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is new legislation that is due to come into action within the EU on May 25th 2018. Although the UK has now begun the process of leaving the EU and negotiations have started, GDPR will still come into place and affect all UK businesses and the way that they operate must comply with this new legislation.

Companies are facing growing pressure from customers to consider the environmental impact of their day-to-day operations, whilst current news following the large scale NHS data hack demonstrates the need for the highest possible security and data protection policies to be in place. One way to help your business to operate in a greener way, as well as more securely, is to implement on-site shredding.
Most businesses are now aware that data protection and customer confidentiality are a must, and that there are consequences if they fail to maintain high levels of security. The fines, legal action and damage to brand reputation that could be faced are enough to make any company take security seriously, and despite the fact that many businesses are now going largely digital, there is still a large volume of physical data, particularly paper documentation, that needs to be stored and disposed of securely on a regular basis.
