13 Jan Don’t Have Poor Disposal Of Confidential Waste
Get a new regime for your confidential waste
Is your New Year resolution to get on top of the mountain of waste paperwork in your business?
It’s time to set up a regular system to deal with confidential waste documents.
You’ll need to know:
- How much confidential waste you’ll be producing every week or month
- How often you’d like your waste to be collected
- How you’d like to deal with the waste in-house – would a secure bag service be appropriate, or would you need a lockable console to ensure no one can access sensitive papers when they’ve been earmarked for disposal?
For one-off shredding, you will be charged either by the weight of your waste paper or by the number of sacks or boxes a service collects.
Reputable confidential waste shredders like Taclus work to stringent rules to ensure your information is dealt with securely.
Taclus holds the accreditations for ISO 9001:2015 for quality management and ISO14001:2015 for environmental management, and has been certified by independent auditors IQS for both.
Much has been made of the threat from cybercrime in the past few years, but being sloppy with paperwork can be just as destructive for a business.
It can also lead to the loss of information useful to hackers and other cybercriminals.
The threats your business faces from poor disposal of confidential waste in 2017
ID theft – thieves could steal your ID or that of any of your employees, using information like National Insurance numbers, names, addresses, telephone numbers, and bank details. The potential for fraud is large.
Customer fraud – if you hold details about your customers, they could find themselves the victims of fraud. That could seriously damage your business and leave you liable for any financial costs they incur.
Competitors knowing your plans – thieves will sell your details on to unscrupulous competitors, giving them a business advantage over you.
Damage to your reputation – particularly if customers have losses.
