Protect your business with our world-class secure document and hard drive destruction services.

Shareholders, employees, and customers rely on senior executives to guide their company, protect its interests, and deliver excellent value for the products and services the company provides.

Meeting those expectations relies, in part, on protecting and securing the organisation’s proprietary, confidential, and personal information.

And yet, despite the importance of tight information security, only 39% of C-Suite Executives said they train employees more than once a year on their industry’s legal compliance requirements, down 4% from 2016.1

When employees don’t know how to identify and secure confidential information, the business is at serious risk of an information breach.

Protect your confidential information. Protect your business.

The impact is substantial.

The average cost of a data breach now exceeds

£2.48M

in fines, penalties, and lost revenue

On average, the number of records stolen is nearly

22,000

records per security breach incident

Protecting confidential information is more than passwords.

Not everything your organisation collects, stores, or handles is digital. When financial forecasts or year-end results are printed, or when reports or agendas are circulated for a meeting, they are at risk of getting into the wrong hands if they are not handled and disposed of properly and securely.

And for that reason alone, every business is at risk of an information breach.

Up to 28% of information breaches are caused by employee error or negligence.2

It’s not just you that you have to worry about. It’s your employees, too.

Without clear practices and policies for the handling and disposal of confidential information, you are relying on your staff to make the right choices when discarding of documents. And if they are choosing between the waste or the recycling bin, neither one is secure. Confidential information that hasn’t been securely destroyed poses a significant risk to your information security.

To make matters even riskier, 31% of UK businesses said they don’t monitor how often employees remove confidential information from the office!!1

In addition to industry regulations governing information privacy, here are a few of the key information security laws that also apply:
