Why is it so important to meet GDPR requirements?

Every business creates paper that contains sensitive information. Being GDPR complaint protects your business from fraud and gives your customers protection and control over their own personal data.

The Must-Shred documents…

Every piece of paper that holds sensitive information regarding your customers details be it on a statement or sticky note that is no longer required.

To protect your own business interests, we recommend shredding any old marketing material and unused letterheads that could be misused by fraudsters if not destroyed. Your business plans and meeting notes could be of great interest to your competitors if they ended up in the wrong hands. The clear solution to avoiding these problems is confidential shredding

What’s so bad about in-house shredding?

Some companies opt to buy a shredder and shred in house. While this can seem like an easy solution, it is often problematic.

Firstly, there is the equipment. Most office shredders strip and shred, which is relatively easy to reassemble if someone is determined to get your sensitive information. If you do purchase a high-end model, the maintenance fees can be exorbitant. 

Secondly, the cost of staff time spent shredding. Most office shredders are slow and jam after just a few pages. In cases where sufficient clearance is required to shred important documents – why pay your senior level staff to spend their time shredding?
