Secure Shredding

£500,000:- THE MAXIMUM FINE FOR CONTRAVENING DATA PROTECTION LEGISLATION.

Our Secure Shredding service in partnership with the UK and Ireland’s largest off-site data destruction organisation, Secure Shredding Alliance, offers you secure off-site destruction of your confidential data. Our service helps protect your business and takes the risk and hassle out of the whole process for you.

Why Secure Shredding?

The legal obligation of businesses to dispose of sensible documents properly and protect the personal data of their customers and employees has never been more important than it is today. Recent legislation holds businesses responsible for proper data protection and disposal with strict fines of up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act.

Did you know that you can also be penalised for disposing of information too soon, keeping it too long or failing to provide documented evidence of disposal? Simply discarding or recycling of business paperwork without an established secure destruction programme puts your information at risk of interception and leaves you susceptible to heavy fines. While in-house shredding is an option, it costs time and manpower, plus there is the danger that you may not be aware of all compliance issues required by the Data Protection Act. In addition, data destruction doesn’t end with paperwork. Information stored on old hard drives, DVDs and CDs also need to be disposed of in the proper way to ensure the safeguarding of your valuable business information.
