How to increase your security with on-site shredding 

Often organisations of all sizes can overlook the issue of security without considering the implications. From theft, to more serious issues, confidentiality is crucial to protect both your customer and in-house data. Security will also give customers a reason to trust and rely on you over some of your competitors. Here are just a few ways to increase your security through on-site shredding.

 

The shredding process

The actual process of shredding confidential documents reduces the likelihood of them being able to be recreated from the remains. Businesses can sometimes be careless and allow private documents to end up in the bin, in one piece, risking the information being stolen. If sensitive information is taken, it can lead to further problems such as legal issues and damaging your reputation.

What does paper shredding do for the environment? 

Secure document destruction through on-site shredding keeps your private customer and business information safe. It ensures a confidential disposal of your data on-site giving you confidence that you are in full compliance with the Dara Protection Act. But as well as this, confidential paper shredding has huge environmental benefits to help your business play their part and be greener.

 

Less waste means saving trees

It might sound cliché but companies which care about the planet will encourage their customers to look after the environment too. Show your customers that you are willing to act and do something about it, and dispose of your waste in an environmentally friendly way.

Why shredding your documents is essential 

Secure destruction of documents containing private or confidential information is an essential part of your business and its day to day running. It is no longer just about the business processes you need, but fundamentally about social responsibility to be green and to follow the law.

 

Protecting the environment

Despite the digital age that we live in, there are still more than 20 million tonnes of waste paper produced annually. 85% of this is from corporate settings, including employee/ customer data such as payslips and bank statements. Companies are more and more being held responsible for their recycling and maintaining an attitude which protects the environment.
