Do you need a monthly shredding service?
Businesses large and small continue to use paper daily. So it’s worth considering a monthly shredding service to keep your data secure.
Why do you need shredding?
One of the main reasons you need to shred paper documents is to avoid a data breach. We’ve all heard media coverage of data breaches occurring with electronic records, but it’s all too easy for paper documents to be the cause. Even the largest of organisations; those we think would be more data protection conscious, have been the victim of hacking of their customers personal records. Whilst it may be tricky to avoid an electronic data breach, even with the most robust anti-virus protection, it’s very easy to avoid a data breach involving paper records. Employing a shredding company to handle your paper waste is by far the most secure way of disposing of confidential data.
The benefits of a monthly shredding service
When you decide to use a shredding company on a regular basis, you can rest easy that your paper data is secure. Sectors such as legal, estate agents and the medical profession use paper records daily, dealing with huge amounts of sensitive data. With a monthly shredding service, you can be confident that all data is taken away without having to worry.
Here’s how a monthly shredding service works:
- You are given a shredding console or wheelie bin depending on the amount of waste you generate
- You post your documents into the secure console or bin
- We schedule a regular collection, weekly, monthly or whenever you need it
- You avoid a paper data breach
