Topwood will ensure you meet all your responsibilities under the Data Protection Act and avoid possible penalties of up to £500,000 as well as protecting your employees, customers and your business reputation. All shredding is fully compliant with the EN15713 and BSIA standards.
Whether it’s hard drives, floppy discs, CDs or video/data tapes, every single piece of data that is received by Topwood for destruction is disintegrated beyond recovery.
Why you should Shred
It can be difficult to know what is acceptable or encouraged to be destroyed or what can be safely kept, especially with the General Data Protection Regulation that came into effect on 25th May 2018 to form part of the Data Protection Act 2018.
Anything that contains your name, address, phone number, bank account information, or any other form of personal data should be shredded since they contain information that can be traced back to you directly.
Data that people usually forget to consider include ATM receipts, credit card receipts, passports, and even used airline tickets.
What we Shred
Our mobile shred trucks can shred anything from tiny receipts to huge files containing staples, bulldog clips and other stationery. Our industrial shredders do have the capability to destroy electronic media such as laptops, disks, hard drives and USB sticks, however these are shredded separately to document shredding.
Topwood also offer secure uniform destruction to protect your brand security. Our high security shred trucks will destroy all traces of brand identity, ensuring that clothing and accompanying staff items cannot be re-used.
It is important that all out of date or damaged uniforms and clothing are destroyed and shredded securely to avoid damage to your business reputation by false impersonation.
