The safest answer to the question of what you need to shred in terms of business documents is probably: everything. New compliance requirements make it more important than ever before to ensure that the way you handle documents and media has the protection of customer data at heart. The more sensitive and confidential information your business deals with, the more crucial it will be to have tamperproof shredding procedures in place.

From local councils to the security services, every government organisation has a responsibility to ensure that the data it’s dealing with doesn’t end up in the wrong hands. Inevitably, for most government organisations, the data involved is personal or sensitive, which brings with it a whole wide range of compliance requirements. So, when it comes to choosing a shredding policy, there are some key details that every government organisation needs to bear in mind.
On-site shredding is the obvious choice for any business looking to ensure high levels of data protection and document security. Whether you’re disposing of confidential papers or media, such as disks or thumb drives, an on-site shredding policy is the only way to ensure that you’re fully compliant with local law.
