Secure Document Shredding

Secure Document Shredding
FACT: Under the Data Protection Act, organisations must employ a data destruction service to destroy redundant confidential information.

Corporate Fraud is on the increase. Recent news reports suggest that fraud costs the UK £30 billion per year. Most companies do not realise the possible huge impact to their business which could arise from confidential data inappropriately held or disposed of by them.

Document Shredding – Data Protection Act

Document Shredding
Every business has a legal obligation to protect the confidential information it holds on its employees, customers and suppliers. Failure to do so can result in heavy fines or even imprisonment for the person responsible.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is now able to fine businesses up to £500,000 if they lose individuals’ confidential data.  This amount has been increased from £5000, to highlight the importance of data security, and to protect individuals from the threat of ID fraud.

The seventh principle of the Data Protection Act states that organisations must employ a data destruction service to destroy redundant confidential information that can be either in paper or electronic format.

Using an accredited supplier that can destroy confidential material in a secure environment will give you peace of mind that your company and associates are protected against ID Fraud.
