Online security has become a mainstream news topic ever since the high profile hacks and security breaches of multinational corporations and even prominent political parties. There’s an important distinction between digital online security and guarding sensitive data in general, but it’s necessary to take precautions against both types of breaches.
Keep on reading to learn more about how modern information destruction companies work, and about their easy to use services.
Easy and Secure Paper Shredding
Today’s industry leaders make it simple to get any papers you need destroyed. Your business may have a range of papers containing standard information which could cause real harm if a rival got their hands on them, such as:
- Old contracts
- Marketing plans
- Proprietary information
- Old tax forms
- Banking records
You can see what Absolute Destruction has to offer when it comes to on-site paper shredding, since they have a mobile shredding truck which can eliminate smaller volumes of sensitive right from your home or office.
When the volume of papers to be destroyed is of a higher magnitude, they can still come right to your door, but they’ll transport the documents in their secure truck and destroy them at their facility. Either way, you’ll never have to make a plan to transport so much heavy and sensitive material.
Naturally, in our modern era, much sensitive information is stored on electronic devices. While we tend to associate data risk with the machines specifically designed to store and process digital information — such as computers, smartphones, hard drives and more — there are other electronics which pose risks that may not immediately consider.
A short list includes:
- Flash/USB drives
- Back-up tapes and drives
- Photocopier and printer memory cards
- Data tapes
If your company or personal electronics need to be discarded, it has to be done safely. Professional shredders will physically destroy the microchips until the data on them cannot possibly be retrieved, and will do so securely and in a way that’s environmentally responsible.
If you have electronics in your home or office storing sensitive information that you no longer need, get them professionally shredded today.
Sometimes the objects which pose risks for a data breach don’t involve paper or electronics. Many industries have unique forms of sensitive information.
It doesn’t matter what form the sensitive information takes: if your rivals can use it against you, or a data thief could perpetrate a scam by getting their hands on it, it needs to be securely shredded.
When you have objects to be shredded like pharmaceutical packaging, ID cards, X-rays, dental moulds, uniforms or more, call in the pros to get it destroyed fully and securely.
We live in a time where online hacks are sadly common, and the topic of privacy rights is forefront on the minds of citizens and companies. Keep your home and business protected with modern shredding services that are secure and convenient, because the ultimate in security means staying safe against non-digital threats too
