GDPR and Document Shredding in Knowsley
GDPR came into effect in May 2018 and was introduced to increase the protection for individuals’ data. Under the new GDPR all organisations should ensure they are protecting individuals’ data and taking every step to reduce the risk of a data breach. Confidential document shredding is one preventative measure that organisations can take to remain GDPR compliant. There are currently no regulations in place enforcing a shred size that is GDPR compliant. Shredding at the highest security level (DIN level P-4) and document shredding on-site ensures the shortest chain of custody and significantly reduces the risk of a data breach.
We can provide you with a number of confidential waste bins and shred sacks for you to store your confidential documents until we come to shred them on-site or collect for off-site shredding.
