In 2016, security breaches cost UK businesses almost £30 billion. Firms both large and small are increasingly concerned about the potential for data loss, which could occur both physically and in the online world. With the incoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in force from May 2018, the rules for data protection are becoming increasingly stringent and the penalties more severe for personal data loss. For businesses, in-house security process are the first line of defence against a potential data breach.

The paperless environment is the aim for many businesses in 2017 but the reality is that this still creates a wide range of data-soaked media. Non-paper media could be anything from X-rays, to CDs and DVDs, which have been loaded up with often-highly sensitive material that would be a disadvantage in the wrong hands. With data privacy and security increasingly high up on the priorities list for businesses, it’s important to consider the destruction of non-paper media as much as traditional documents.
Safe and secure data disposal is now crucial for every business. Whether you’re dealing with paper documents or non-paper media, such as CDs or USB sticks, the standards of safe disposal are higher than they have ever been. Legal compliance, preserving reputation and ensuring greater operational efficiency are just a few of the reasons why shredding makes a huge difference to the ability a business has to meet expectations.
