Secure Document Shredding in Manchester

“Scores of confidential social services files containing highly personal details about the lives of vulnerable young people – including abuse survivors – have been found abandoned in an empty Tameside office.

The extraordinary data breach was discovered by the building’s landlord after drug service contractor Change, Grow, Live (CGL) left a fortnight ago.

But he says neither CGL nor Tameside council showed any interest in retrieving the records when he alerted them.”

The Information Commissioner’s Office are currently investigating the data breach and has the power to enforce a fine of up to £500,000 to the organisation responsible for the data breach.

With the new GDPR regulations due to come into effect in May 2018 organisations in Manchester need to have processes in place to enable individuals to have the ‘right to be forgotten’ and protect individuals’ information from being exposed and breached. Having a secure data destruction process is a key step to take to ensure GDPR compliance.

To reduce the risk of a data breach always check to see if your shredding or storage company has the following accreditations;

  • ISO 27001: 2013
  • ISO 9001: 2015
  • EN15713
  • BS7858 – Vetted Staff

Excellent service, friendly driver/shredder. Arrived early. Job done swiftly and efficiently. What a difference to the poor service I’ve had from Shred-It.
