Despite best intentions to be more eco friendly, many offices are still processing large volumes of paper. Disposing efficiently of that paper in a way that meets compliance and confidentiality requirements can be a challenge. Valuable employee time is often wasted handling the process, which may be further hampered by the use of small, inefficient shredders. For any business of any size there are some very good reasons to use a professional shredding service.

Whether your focus is on data protection or more sustainable business practices, shredding has become an essential part of operations for many enterprises. This often involves working with a trusted partner able to handle the shredding needs of your organisation, as well as meeting the standards of confidentiality and security that may entail. When you’re setting up, or reviewing, the current shredding processes in place within your business there are four key things to think about.
“Chain of Custody” is a phrase that sounds more appropriate for a crime drama than an office environment. However, with the introduction of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in May last year it has become an essential part of operations where data security is concerned. Data destruction, whether physical or digital, is a key part of the process of ensuring Chain of Custody is secure. Every business today is obliged to take steps today to safeguard the chain to ensure that compliance obligations are met.
