Keeping personal details or classified business documents confidential is of the utmost importance. Privacy is paramount in all business sectors, whether it be the private or public sector, small or large corporations, as data privacy laws have pushed corporate responsibility to the forefront.
In order to keep your office a confidential environment, reducing the likelihood of identity theft or security breaches, it is important to bear in mind the following, to protect your company reputation and brand image:
Secure document shredding. Simply throwing confidential documents away is not enough to ensure that they are destroyed. Likewise, entrusting a member of staff to complete mass shredding, is not always the most secure way to protect clients personal details, as papers could be missed. Identity theft is rife in the media and as such, entrusting document destruction to an expert external contractor may prove the most safe option, as staff are fully vetted and trained in privacy policies. In addition, by employing the services of a secure shredding company, existing staff will have their time freed up for more pressing business matters – like making money for your company. Cost savings can also be had by using an expert shredder, as you will not have to purchase and maintain expensive shredding equipment.
