Data protection compliance is about to get a whole lot more challenging. In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in the UK bringing with it a whole raft of new requirements that significantly tighten up data compliance. Destruction of data is a key part of safe data handling so if you’re taking steps now to ensure compliance for 2018, shredding potentially has a significant role to play.

Environmentally friendly values and corporate social responsibility have been big themes in 2017.

Paper shredding is one way that any business can instantly upgrade green credentials in time for the new year.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on 25th May 2018. This key EU regulation is set to shake up the way that businesses handle consumer data and, despite the imminent UK exit from the EU, it will still apply next year. So, for every business, there is now some urgency to ensuring that internal processes comply with the GDPR and that the way that personal information and customer data is handled and disposed of won’t create problems for the business.
