How is your business coping with GDPR?
GDPR came to full effect in May 2018, and since then businesses have been struggling to keep up with the change. Ticketmaster, for example, has been in the news recently with their huge data breach where up to 40,000 people in the UK were affected. Shredded Neat understand the importance of GDPR and know that even a few months after its implementation, it might be difficult for your business to keep up with the demand.
Keep up with GDPR in 2018
General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) has changed the way that companies use and store data and how long for, which includes any records that are kept on paper. The amount of time a company is allowed to hold personal information varies within each business, but here at Shredded Neat we’ve experienced clients who have held onto documents since the 1880s when they were first established.
GDPR Compliant Paper Shredding
Shredded Neat are proud to be fully GDPR complaint and can help you be the same. With fines at an all time high for failure to comply, it is paramount that you ensure you have yourself covered when it comes to Data Protection. Shredded Neat offer both on and off-site services for domestic and commercial clients. You can save time and precious money by outsourcing your shredding needs, especially if you’re a larger company who produces a lot of confidential waste.
With our state-of-the-art mobile shredder, you can witness your documents being destroyed on your own premises for peace of mind. We will also issue you with a certification of destruction that you can keep on your permanent records (just remember not to add it to your shredding pile!). The paper is then sent to a recycling centre meaning your documents are truly destroyed in the eco-friendliest way possible when you choose mobile on-site shredding from Shredded Neat.
Not all data is stored on paper
Sometimes data can be stored on hard drives or computers, and still falls under the GDPR legislation. In order to safely get rid of your data, take advantage of our Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) destruction service.
