Most businesses store a considerable amount of confidential and time sensitive information on hardware. This is information that will need to be destroyed after its period of use. Whilst many businesses store information in paper form, an increasing number of businesses are opting to store their data digitally. There are many ways of destroying a hard drive and other media, but here is what you need to know to achieve this securely:

Shredding is a key part of many business’ in-house security policies because of the benefits that it brings. But what are these benefits and how can shredding services apply to multi-office businesses, with multiple locations?
Are you aware of the process that takes place when your business’ confidential documents are no longer required? How are they stored when they’re being used? It’s all too easy to simply recycle them. Although this is great for the environment, it does nothing but cause a high risk to your security. Keeping confidential documents secure at all stages of their lifecycle is imperative to ensuring complete compliance with UK data protection laws.
