With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect on May 25th this year, GDPR compliant document destruction has never been more important.
Every European business that holds customer information will have to review their processes for storing and disposing of customer data, and with the GDPR’s maximum fine set at a staggering 20 million Euros, or 4 per cent of global turnover (whichever is higher), compliance is imperative.
Shredding paper-based documents will help your organisation meet GDPR requirements, by providing an effective way of disposing of data securely to prevent access by third parties. If you fail to follow the correct procedures for disposing of paper documents and a data breech occurs, under the new GDPR you will be liable.
For complete confidence, we offer a GDPR compliant document destruction service, which includes the removal and destruction of office papers and highly sensitive, confidential materials. We aim to have all documents shredded within 24 hours of collection/delivery and Certificates of Destruction are issued for peace of mind and compliance.
