In any office environment, shredding is a vital part of the document lifecycle. Many organisations handle confidential information and not disposing of this properly can create a multitude of problems. Most workplaces are not yet paper free today and this can mean documents accumulate, creating opportunities for data theft to take place and exposing the business to consequences. These are just some of the reasons why shredding documents is so important.

Data security is incredibly important for all businesses today. Since the pandemic, the number of data thefts has been on the rise and remote working has significantly increased the budget that any enterprise now needs to set aside to defend against this type of attack. Given the context of a much tighter regulatory environment (thanks to the GDPR) where fines can be significant it’s more important than ever before for organisations to have key paperwork, such as a certificate of destruction, in place.
Access to shredding is vital for businesses today. It not only helps to ensure that your organisation is not vulnerable to data theft, fraud and penalties for a failure to meet compliance standards but can also be a key part of creating an organised, professional environment. But when you’re looking at a shredding service for your business, what are the differences between a one-off and a regular shredding service?
