As we are all adjusting to the strange new world which has grown around us over the last few weeks, we are all finding different ways of coping, and different ways to use our time.
Many of us, once we have started to get over the shock of what is going on in the world, are getting around to doing some of those non-urgent but important jobs that we’ve been putting off.
Here at Taclus Confidential we’ve already had requests from customers to drop off sacks so that they can start to clear out old archives and paperwork. We are also hearing that people are starting to look at their over-all data retention set up, revising policies and processes.
In deciding what data you should keep, how long for and how and when to dispose of it, there are a number of resources available for guidance. The Information Commissioner’s Office has a lot of detailed information and some useful self-assessment checklists, https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-self-assessment/
Also, we answer a lot of questions specific to data retention and destruction on our own website, https://taclusconfidential.co.uk/faqs/
We are still offering a full collection, destruction and certification service to new and existing customers, taking appropriate extra precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
So, if you’re thinking of using lock-down time for that clear-out that you’ve been meaning to do, please drop us a line or give us a call on firstname.lastname@example.org and 029 2030 3717.
