Do your staff currently choose between confidential shredding and recycling? If so, you could unwittingly be putting your business, customers, suppliers and staff at risk.
That’s because by law, the information your business creates, receives and processes must be destroyed compliantly. And, with every organisation susceptible to a data breach, it’s essential that documents are securely shredded to protect the confidentiality of your customers, employees and others who trust you with their personal information.
Protect your company with a ‘zero risk’ culture
If you want to protect your business from large fines, you need to use a secure document destruction service, which allows staff to deposit all of their paper waste into locked consoles for shredding and recycling. This approach encourages a ‘zero risk’ culture for security and compliance, whilst enhancing your company’s Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR), as all of the paper that is shredded is recycled back into paper products for the future.
