Shredding has become an increasingly vital part of data protection in recent years. Safely disposing of documents, files and items that might contain sensitive data not only ensures that your business is compliant with data protection legislation but also helps to avoid fraud and identity theft, as well as keeping corporate processes and secrets safe. The first step to getting set up to shred documents is to get clear about what you can actually shred.
Privacy is a legal right - and one that has been enshrined into law many times. As a result, any documents that contain sensitive and confidential information must be treated with extreme care. Medical records are probably one of the most obviously vulnerable types of document because they are filled with personal, sensitive information that would be a breach of privacy if it fell into the wrong hands.
