Disposal of Confidential Documents

The disposal of confidential documents is crucial in keeping important information secure, and from ending up in the wrong hands.

Whether it is documents for work, or personal documents, the disposal of confidential documents should be done securely and correctly. Not only can paper documents be disposed of, but hard drives, phones and USB sticks can and should be as well.

Any kind of documents containing personal or work information should be destroyed. There may be things that you don’t consider as being confidential, but anything could have private information. Things such as notebooks, old receipt books, and scraps of paper could contain important details that need to be disposed of. The type of information that is confidential includes, employee details, intellectual property, private company details, confidential and client information. Destroying this information will help you to comply with the latest Privacy Act provisions within your workplace.

Disposal of Confidential Documents

Onsite document destruction services are a convenient, efficient and cost-effective way to get the job done. You won’t have to spend time gathering all the documents, and shredding them in a manual paper shredder – which can quite often jam. An on-site document destruction service also allows you to properly dispose of electronic sensitive information, which you may not be able to do on your own. iShred can come to your home or place of business to provide these high-quality services. All shredding and disposal activity is fully monitored for your peace of mind, and the onsite bins can be left behind. If you would rather not have an onsite service, iShred also offers offsite services for your convenience. At the end of all monitored shredding activity, all paper will be 100% recycled. You will receive a document destruction certificate for your records, to prove the correct disposal of the confidential information.

iShred is certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), which means that all staff is properly trained, and that iShred complies with the best security practices.
