Shredding solutions for the legal profession
Document shredding that follows the letter of the law
As time goes by, even legal documents lose their value and become out-of-date. By keeping them indefinitely you run the risk of exposing your customers, past and present, to unnecessary privacy risks that could be avoided through a simple document shredding policy.
Customer confidentiality is paramount in the legal sector. And with regulators demanding greater emphasis on ethical conduct and accountability, it is of the upmost importance that customers’ privacy and administrative records are safeguarded as a priority.
According to a 2009 study from Workshare, the legal information management specialists, 98% of UK law firms questioned stated that a publicly disclosed data breach would have a negative impact on their firm's reputation, with 72% highlighting that such a breach could cost their firm millions of pounds in lost revenue.
