The GDPR affects how businesses dispose of private information at the office. You need to ensure that details are recorded and kept properly. Shredall SDS Group can help you to get all your unwanted documents destroyed in a verifiable, sustainable way.
The GDPR affects all ‘sensitive information’, whether that’s invoices, customer receipts, business financials, contracts or documents containing passwords and PIN numbers. Adapting to these rules will reduce an organisation’s chances of business fraud.
What does your business need to do?
We recommend that businesses review the way their sensitive information is destroyed after use. Robust policies need to be put into place and many businesses may find that subcontracting these new measures are a secure and cost-effective solution. However, it is understandable that some businesses might prefer to have their shredding completed on site for added reassurance.
Nevertheless, the GDPR regulation for in-house shredding requires proof that documents were destroyed, which the average office shredder doesn’t provide. For GDPR compliance, a Certification of Destruction will document the time and date of shredding to ensure the secure disposal of sensitive data.
How Shredall can help your business comply
Shredall offers a secure on-site shredding service, which is carried out in regular, scheduled visits or one-off arrangements.
