Paper Shredding in Lichfield

Topwood can provide confidential paper shredding services in Lichfield every Thursday. South Staffordshire College is located in Lichfield in postal area WS13 along with other educational institutions such as King Edward VI School. The educational sector is one that accumulates large amounts on personal data, whether it be names, addresses, contact details, exam results, application letters, all data that is no longer being used should be securely destroyed under The Data Protection Act 2018 (incorporating GDPR). Outsourcing to a professional shredding company can help improve your GDPR compliance with regular shredding of your confidential waste.

One of our top frequently asked questions is: “Do your shredders cut to a size that is GDPR compliant?” The answer is yes, however the law does not specify a size to shred your documents to. Under GDPR it is up to the data controllers to take all of the necessary steps to reduce the risk of a data breach. Regular shredding of personal information, contact details, exam results is essential to remain GDPR compliant in the educational sector.
