Destruction and shredding of confidential paper documents

As documents accumulate in an office environment the less the information is secure, due to handling by many stakeholders. For information security, destruction and shredding of confidential documents is necessary to prevent risk of data exposure which can lead to improper use of the company’s data.

What is document destruction and shredding?

This is the process of cutting down paper documents into small pieces which cannot be combined together again to get the information written on it. This is done using sophisticated commercial shredders which are able to cut paper into very small cubes for information security. This is very important to ensure somebody cannot use the information in the paper documents.

Why is document destruction and shredding necessary?

  • To protect your confidentiality and ensure the company information is not exposed to data theft.
  • To reuse the paper for other economically viable products.
  • To minimize environmental degradation through carbon emission.

Document destruction and shredding can be done in the office regularly on a day to day basis so as not to pile up documents. This is usually done on documents that are used regularly and lots of duplications are made and are required to be done away with. An office shredder is used for document destruction and shredding. The office shredder can do the work but will not completely shred the documents thus making it quite easy to retrieve the information on the paper. It would be safe to outsource the document destruction and shredding process to a reliable service provider. This is usually done as a one time shredding or a regularly scheduled shredding.
