SECURE SHREDDING SERVICE
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 thea UK is approximately £1.7bn and increasing at the phenomenal rate of 500% a year. This has become the costliest security risk that a business can face.
Shredding is not a legal requirement but taking the proper steps to secure information is. However, every business must securely dispose of confidential information, including customer lists, client information, credit card receipts, personal fi les or payroll records. It’s vital to protect and secure information that could be used to steal identities. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has the power to issue penalties 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.
