If you haven’t already done so, July is a great time to start looking through your company’s accumulated data and determine whether or not it’s still necessary to retain. As a general rule of thumb, records relating to your employees, your company’s finances or fringe benefits and capital gains must be kept for a minimum 7 years. So what do you do once it becomes redundant? Depending on the nature of the information you have stored, there may be legal obligations relating to the way you dispose of documents and digital files – private or sensitive data must be destroyed in a secure and irretrievable manner at the end of it’s retention period to ensure privacy is safeguarded. More than this, ensuring the protection of business, customer and employee information can preserve your business reputation by avoiding data breaches, information leaks and theft. Regardless of sensitivity, finding yourself faced with a bunch of redundant data can be a massive headache, especially coming into the new financial year. This is where Shred-X step in.

When was the last time you audited your archives? As document digitisation progressively nullifies hardcopy archives, mounds of paperwork and documents are becoming unnecessary to keep. But it could also mean a lot more hard drives, floppy disks and magnetic backup tapes laying around with sensitive information. This can mean great news for your storage rooms but can evoke many headaches when figuring out what to do with it.
Shred-X offer peace of mind with secure archive box removal, encompassing everything from pick up to secure transportation and destruction and degaussing of devices.
