Secure document and data destruction compliance. High security shredding carried out to BS8470
Our 100% track record speaks for itself - Saracen has never compromised our customers security with any document placed in our care - something we work hard to maintain.
Why protect your data?
Increasingly stringent data protection legislation means companies face heavy penalties if not complying with confidential records management and data destruction requirements.
Saracen can help you take the risk and hassle out of the whole document disposal process. Recent studies on identity fraud have shown that criminals primarily rely on low tech methods such as searching through skips; bins etc to collect personal information they need to commit identity crime. Customers are unforgiving when they learn an organisation has not properly secured and protected their information. Recent highly publicised cases have highlighted the importance of protecting customers’ data at all costs. Companies involved in these cases have suffered bad publicity and loss of business due to their lack of diligence towards this matter.
Shred everything and avoid data protection risks
Saracen appreciates the importance of the correct confidential destruction of documents and files at the end of their storage life. Recent horror stories in the media have drawn attention to the need for carefully managed secure destruction and disposal - no commercial entity or public body wants the ignominy of confidential records and documents being found by the public. Yet it is tempting for contractors to take bulk confidential waste and process it either as land fill or as exported waste paper.
Document, media and paper shredding is the most effective secure destruction method and the process should be carried out to BS8470.
