If there is one thing that is prized above all when it comes to financial matters, it is confidentiality. From personal finances through to issues that affect large public companies, keeping sensitive figures, projections, standards or reports away from those that shouldn’t see them is a priority. There are not only potential cost and competition implications in failing to keep certain data safe but legal and reputational issues too. In a sector such as finance, safe document disposal is critical to the future of the business, which is why shredding is a vital investment.

Over the last decade we have seen a significant shift to digital documents and workflows across the business community. However, the reality is that very few offices are yet a genuinely paper-free environment. From office policies, to important emails and attachments, the average office still creates vast volumes of printed materials in a single day, many of which are sensitive or highly confidential. On-site shredding is the only true solution to ensuring that data in these documents is protected and the business is not exposed to unnecessary risk as a result of regular paper use.
There are many risks for the average business when it comes to inadequate data protection. From customer attrition to reputational damage, if customer data is lost or made public, there is the potential for tangible impact on the business’ bottom line. However, that’s not the only potential disadvantage of not properly disposing of documents that contain personal data – a lack of legal compliance could have serious consequences too.
