Safeguard your vulnerable information
Your company stores information which could be a huge risk to your business in the wrong hands. According to the BBC Money Programme the cost of identity theft in the UK is approximately £1.7bn and increasing at the phenomenal rate of 500% a year. This has become the most costly security risk a business faces.
Is shredding a legal requirement?
No, but taking the proper steps to secure information is. Every business has to securely dispose of confidential information, including customer lists, client information, credit card receipts, personal files or payroll records. It’s vital to protect and secure information that could be used to steal identities. The Information Commisioner’s Office (ICO) has the power to issue penalites up to £500,000 if a business is found in breach of the Data Protection Act. Under this act, an organisation should not discard intact customer, staff or supplier information, and shredding offers the most environmentally friendly solution.
Should we shred documents?
We can shred, bale and ensure that your shredded paper is recycled back into products, such as kitchen paper or facial tissues. Alternatively, we have over 80 shredders in our catalogue suitable for offices of any size. From home office to large heavy duty machines, and from basic security (A4 into 30 pieces) to maximum security (A4 sheet into 15,000 pieces), we have the right shredder for you.
