Every business regardless of size or trade records vital and sensitive information.
Many have shifted to digital means of storage while others still rely on hard copies. Regardless of where the data is stored, when this information becomes obsolete, it needs to be disposed of properly, by securely destroying it.
Paper Shredding Services, whose sole purpose is to destroy data and prevent anyone from misusing the information are becoming increasingly popular as a means of achieving this. The use of Paper Shredding Services is an important safe guard against the theft of intellectual property and the protection of sensitive data. Every business collects sensitive information such as credit card details, addresses, phone numbers, and payroll records. Throwing the data away in a normal bin can expose the organization to great risk. If competitors, the media or the public acquire this information due to improper disposal methods, the company may be liable for breaching compliance regulations and privacy laws. It may also provide an unwanted advantage to rival organizations.
Even the simplest bit of information such as a phone number or address can be used for devious purposes by thieves. Whether they are clients or employees, keeping confidential data safe by disposing of it properly is essential to a business’s reputation. Identity theft is on the rise and a business with a reputation for poor security is unlikely to survive for long if clients and employees can’t trust the organization to keep them safe.
