Secure Paper Shredding And So Much More...
While businesses are striving to achieve the ‘paper-less’ office, there are still so many more items within the average office that need to be disposed of in a confidential manner. To reduce the risk of data protection violation and corporate identity theft, businesses need to consider the non-paper items that require secure disposal. Take for instance, media such as CD’s that contain confidential and commercially sensitive information, while these can be wiped are you 100% confident the information couldn’t be retrieved?
Also what about uniforms, ID badges or any kind of branded materials or products, could there be any repercussions should they fall into the wrong hands? Here at Russell Richardson we own state-of-the-art shredding equipment that can efficiently shred pretty much any item from computer hard drives through to plastics and fabrics.
Now is the perfect time to take a look around your business and see what items could require securely shredding including:
- Computer back-ups
- CD-Roms/ CD-Rs/DVDs
- Cassette tapes
- Video tapes
- Product samples
- Promotion vouchers
- ID badges
- Playing cards
- Casino chips
My advice as always is, if in doubt shred everything.
