Secure Document Disposal – Protecting Yourself

The annual cost of identity theft in Australia is $2.2 billion dollars.

We, as individuals, collect a large number of documents – some of which contain sensitive information such as our bank statements, pay slips, credit information, car registration rates, and superannuation and pension statements. Therefore, secure document disposal is important to safeguard against identity theft. Take your data security to the next level with high-security shredding.

At iShred Document Destruction, we follow strict regulations for document disposal. Our secure document disposal standards are there to ensure that your documents cannot be reassembled or reproduced. We embrace a ‘green’ policy; the end result is recycled and does not go into a landfill.

Here are some types of documents that can and should be shredded for data protection:

  • Bank statements
  • Credit Card Bills
  • Financial Records
  • Documents with names, addresses, phone number and/or email addresses
  • Tax Records
  • Pay Stubs
  • Employee Records
  • Business designs/notes/sensitive information


Whether you are a business or in reference to your personal security, it is important to securely dispose of your documents. Many businesses are entrusted with sensitive information such as customer lists, payroll record and credit card information. It is important to protect all your stakeholders from your customers to your employees.

Prevention is the best protection.

Moreover, it is important that your organization is mindful of the document retention policy in Victoria. This can result in data loss, information security breaches and violation of the data privacy legislation if the business holds onto confidential personal information longer than the reason it was initially collected.

From a more personal perspective, high security shredding keeps the identity thieves away, and your intellectual property safe. It will give you peace of mind, safety and all done in a secure and environmental way.

Take care of the information that matters. Shred it.
