Paper shredding is a simple process but one that has become increasingly essential for every business today. Most of us are aware of the potential dangers of sensitive documents that are left unprotected and how this can lead to business identity theft. However, recent regulatory change has also increased the need for regular paper shredding in order for compliance standards to be reached. As a result, confidential paper shredding has become one of the most important internal processes for any organisation keen to develop and grow within legal frameworks.

Shredding has 2 main benefits – security and reducing your carbon footprint. Every business is ideally going to be considering how they can protect their company from any data breaches or loss of confidential information, but many companies also choose to address their environmental impact. Paper shredding is something that contributes to improving both of these areas.
Data security remains a top priority for many organisations today. A lack of it can not only leave a business exposed to data theft or reputational damage but could also attract penalties and fines as a result of a lack of compliance with data protection laws. Crucially, when protecting your business data, it’s important to focus both on digital data and any that is being physically generated on a day-to-day basis.
