Secure Document Destruction: A Legal Requirement
The Data Protection Act places a legal responsibility on your organisation to ensure that steps are taken to safeguard information when it is gathered, stored, shared, maintained and disposed of. The legislation covers all personal data including paper and computer records from which a living person can be identified. Failure to comply with the Data Protection Act could result in your company being fined up to £500,000, and the majority of companies prosecuted by the Data Protection Registrar are found guilty.

It is therefore essential to ensure that your organisation undergoes secure shredding whenever sensitive documents need to be disposed of. Enlisting the assistance of a specialist secure data destruction company is imperative, as it can reduce your company’s risk of a data security breech and save you time. It is only by seeking professional document destruction services, by a company that shreds to BSIA standards, that you can be sure that your disposal methods are fully compliant with the Data Protection Act.
