It is no longer adequate to simply throw away documents containing confidential information after use. Fraud and identity theft are just two well-known risks of private data being compromised by criminals, and businesses are putting their customers’ personal data at risk if they fail to dispose of it securely and sufficiently that it cannot be pieced back together. From the initial acquisition of data, throughout its lifecycle of use, to the end disposal, it’s important to maintain complete security at all times.
Despite the move towards paperless working, information is still being stored on physical media. This hardware includes media such as hard drives, USB Memory sticks, SIM cards, X-Rays, Video or Cassette tapes, CDs, DVDs, and Microfishe and Floppy Disks. All of these things can contain sensitive information that now needs to be disposed of.
