Q. Is shredding confidential?
A. Most definitely at Saracen. And we issue destruction cetificates for your records. All personnel are security-checked and all premises are secure. The shredded paper or destroyed data/hardware is well beyond reconstruction or retrieval. we have never had a security breach in our 20+ year history and standards are even hoigher today than they've ever been.
Q. How can you be sure of security?
A. Firstly we have achieved all the standard required security measures that are required to achieve relevant ISO or BS levels.
Q. Why do you suggest off-site shredding?
A. Cost, environment and convenience: The cost is less because off-site shredding does not require expensive mobile resources which are better suited to a large plant off-site; environmental issues are addressed better off-site becasue o=site shredding makes noise and pollution which does does benefit from the economies of scale ata dedicated specialist plant; all paper and hardware waste is recycles after being put beyond recommissioning; and it's more convenient becasue your personnel are free to work rather than observe the destruction plus you don't have a walloping great noisy truck on your premises for longer than necessary.
Q. If we store with you can you shred un-needed documents at the end of their life?
A. Yes we do that for most of our customers. It's automated and error free although you have to approve and confirm destruction. This also saves you money as the number of boxes does not grow whilst you add new boxes because many are coming out the other end of the system. You can always request destruction, depending on your compliance and policies.
