Top 5 Reasons to Shred Your Important Documents
It Clears Space
Whether in your office or your house, who wants lots of old documents and paperwork lying around? It’s impractical and it’s an eyesore. If you were to shred your documents you’d free up space for anything you want, and not only that, but you’ll also have a much better-looking space too.
It’s a Legal Requirement
It is the law for businesses to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of its staff and clients. Paper copies with personal data will be more easily accessible than those stored in a database, locked down and secured with passwords. Therefore, it is ever so important to ensure these documents don’t fall in to the wrong hands.
There are penalties for those that fail to comply with the privacy regulations set out by the government, and these can be fines of as much as 4% of annual global turnover.
It Helps Prevent Identity Fraud
Any documents with personal details on them can be used by someone to steal an identity. If you don’t shred your documents before you throw them out, identity thieves can use those details to sign up for things like credit cards or passports under a stolen persona.
