The Data Protection Act was set up to do exactly as it says on the tin - protect consumers’ data. This means that there are some things that your business must do to ensure you’re compliant with the recommendations. The Act says that your company must create and store its data in a secure environment and that all data must be disposed of in a secure manner. In the case of paper, shredding is the best method to dispose of your paper waste. For branded documentation and IT equipment, a more permanent destruction method is required to shred the hard disk or branded item to avoid fraud.
Document destruction becomes a large task when you’re going through an entire office. Using a small paper shredder purchased from your local stationers can be a costly, noisy and slow approach to achieve your goal. Paper shredding machines are not designed for intense office use and can’t handle that amount of document shredding.
In an effort to make our businesses more sustainable we need to recycle all of our paper. After all, corporate social responsibility is extremely important when showing you’re an organisation that cares about your carbon footprint. Document shredding has never been so important but yet so difficult until now.
