The Importance of Security Shedding
The Data Protection Act 1988 stipulates that every organisation has a legal responsibility to safeguard the privacy of anyone whose information they hold. This applies to the life of the data when it is in your possession, and it also applies to the disposal of the data once it has been used.
Principle 7 of the Data Protection Act says that:
APPROPRIATE TECHNICAL AND ORGANISATIONAL MEASURES SHALL BE TAKEN AGAINST UNAUTHORISED OR UNLAWFUL PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA AND AGAINST ACCIDENTAL LOSS OR DESTRUCTION OF, OR DAMAGE TO, PERSONAL DATA.
This means that your organisation has a responsibility to destroy the data it holds so that it can no longer be used. If you do not comply with this legislation, you could be liable to prosecution from the Information Commissioner’s Office with a fine up to £500,000 fine, and your organisation may also have to pay compensation to individuals who suffer loss, damage or distress as a result of your actions.
Shredsec’s security shredding service enables you to demonstrate due diligence in your efforts to dispose of confidential waste securely. Our solution allows you to dispose of all your confidential papers in a secure environment under controlled conditions.
