From local councils to the security services, every government organisation has a responsibility to ensure that the data it’s dealing with doesn’t end up in the wrong hands. Inevitably, for most government organisations, the data involved is personal or sensitive, which brings with it a whole wide range of compliance requirements. So, when it comes to choosing a shredding policy, there are some key details that every government organisation needs to bear in mind.

On-site shredding is the obvious choice for any business looking to ensure high levels of data protection and document security. Whether you’re disposing of confidential papers or media, such as disks or thumb drives, an on-site shredding policy is the only way to ensure that you’re fully compliant with local law.
If there is one thing that is prized above all when it comes to financial matters, it is confidentiality. From personal finances through to issues that affect large public companies, keeping sensitive figures, projections, standards or reports away from those that shouldn’t see them is a priority. There are not only potential cost and competition implications in failing to keep certain data safe but legal and reputational issues too. In a sector such as finance, safe document disposal is critical to the future of the business, which is why shredding is a vital investment.
