In a world where digitisation is growing and the use of paper is widely declining for many business processes, data is being stored more on hardware such as hard drives, CDs, and DVDs, as well as USB memory sticks or even in specific industries things like X-Rays. All of these media can hold confidential information, that is vital to your business or private information belonging to customers and contacts.

On-site shredding has quickly become an obvious choice for removing your confidential waste and data. Companies need to be concerned with the protection of sensitive financial documents and client lists, but also there are legal considerations that take priority as well. Privacy laws including HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and FACTA (the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act) hold businesses responsible for protecting customer/consumer information. There are two types of shredding services – on-site and off-site.
Businesses are realising that professional shredding companies offer a range of advantages such as security, environmentally friendly disposal and compliance with the Data Protection Act. So, here are some of the great benefits of using a professional paper shredding company could bring to your business.
