Every school, college or university today has a range of responsibilities to fulfil when it comes to keeping data safe. Compliance with regulation, such as the GDPR, is an essential part of the process and applies just as much to educational institutions as it does to business organisations. There can be severe consequences for schools, colleges and universities that don’t take data protection seriously, not just in terms of the fines that can result from a lack of legal compliance but reputational damage too.

In the legal sector, perhaps more than any other, there is a very specific need for data security. The way confidential information is held and managed can have a big impact on whether clients feel able to trust their advisors – and the consequences of sensitive data falling into the wrong hands can be severe. The way that law firms deal with data is essential, not just when it is in digital form but physical documents too – that’s why a comprehensive approach to paper and document shredding is so essential.
Secure shredding has become a key process for any business today. However, for accounting and financial sector enterprises it’s particularly essential. Inadvertently obtained financial data, whether it is lost or stolen, can do huge reputational damage and there are some significant regulatory consequences for failing to ensure minimum quality standards when it comes to document disposal. So, for any organisation operating in this sector, it’s important to ensure that existing shredding processes have the following covered.
