Secure Shredding and Data Destruction Services for the Hotels and Hospitality Industry

The hotel industry has seen a huge number of high-profile data breaches in recent years. Despite this, POS systems and networks continue to be compromised on a regular basis. But many hotel operators also overlook a more common, low-tech threat to their information security: paper documents.

According to Trustwave Global Security Report 2019, 10% of data breach incidents happened in the hospitality industry [1], resulting in monumental fines and reputational damage for both large chains as well as smaller and single properties.

The introduction of the GDPR has made it even more important to securely store, and destroy private and confidential information. Shred-it’s range of services from paper shredding to hard drive destruction help ensure your organisation stays secure and remains compliant.

Protect your guests. Protect your business. Get Shred-it.

When it comes to the risk of an information breach, no one is immune.

In an industry that relies heavily on front desk employees and other customer-facing service representatives, you need to feel confident they know how to identify, handle, and securely dispose of confidential information – whether that information belongs to your guests or your hotel.

This is increasingly important, as 24% of all data breaches are still caused by employee error or negligence [6].

Our document shredding and hard drive destruction services removes the responsibility placed upon employees to protect your guests, staff and hotel.

Don't risk an information breach

Most people fail to identify confidential information correctly. While obvious things like photocopies of a guest’s driving license are quickly flagged, equally common items like a booking confirmation or a reward programme statement might be missed.

If you create, collect, or dispose of these types of documents, you and your hotel could be at-risk of an information breach ––

  • Booking Information
  • Conference Room
  • Presentation Leave Behinds
  • Credit Card Slips
  • Guest Itineraries
  • Boarding Passes
  • Reward Programme Statements
  • HR Documents
  • Financial Reports
  • Guest Personal Records
  • Customer Receipts

"Personnel is always courteous, timely and professional" - Holiday Inn Express - Ft. Payne

GDPR compliance: don't become a statistic.

Since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018, reported data breaches have surged by two-thirds, resulting in significant fines and subsequent reputational damage [7].

41% of UK consumers claim they will never return to a business that has had a data breach [8].
