There are many benefits to committing to regular shredding, whether you’re looking to improve operational efficiency or compliance and security.

Shredding is increasingly part of everyday operations for most businesses. Properly disposing of confidential information in document form is not just good practice but also a legal requirement for many organisations today. While there is plenty of focus on protecting digital data through firewalls etc. Actually, ensuring that you have similar processes in place to avoid a physical data breach is just as essential. The very best way to do that is with a robust shredding strategy.
Data protection has been a hot topic for decades - and especially since the GDPR increased the pressure on businesses to ensure this is happening in 2018. However, data protection isn’t just about the way that documents and files are handled but also the way that they are destroyed. Data protection laws in the UK require that data is destroyed safely and securely when it’s no longer required. For many organisations that is going to require a commitment to secure shredding.
