The Importance of Confidential Destruction for a Business

Many businesses do not have a clear clue of Confidential Destruction. They are combined with large amounts of private and essential information. Lots of documents are mandatory to be kept at least 5 years according to tax regulations. Therefore, most companies store records of business accounts, financial reports, employee records, client information, etc. In fact, the ability to keep detailed data is a very useful factor that often plays an important role in a business’s success. Nowadays, no one live without data and records.
A sheet of paper may not seem valuable to the average person, but business documents are seen as extremely valuable to many criminals. If a person were to take a sneak peek into a business’s trash bin, they would probably find letters, bank statements, tax information, and other private documents. If this information were to get into the wrong hands, an innocent person could find themselves to be the victim of identity theft very easily.

Don’t Let it Slip

While simply throwing away an old document may seem like a negligible action, identity thieves and commercial criminals often utilize this type of opportunity. Many identity thieves will actually dig through a business’s waste, hoping to find one private document that somehow escaped the shredder.
A single piece of paper inking personal information is dangerous because an experienced identity thief can do lots of illegal activities with a name and address. However, lots of companies do not emphasize such a problem, believing an office shredder can solve it all.

How Does Confidential Waste Shredding/Data Destruction Protect Businesses?

Confidential shredding makes sure that all personal and corporate confidential information is destroyed. When a document is shredded, the paper is cut into thin strips or other small pieces like 40mm*40mm. Even the most elite identity thief would have no way to recover putting these pieces together. The shredded pieces are scrabbled in an industrial shredder so the shredding machine leaves no chance for possible data leaking.

How does Confidential Waste Shredding/Data Destruction work?

The shredding machine we talking about is not the shredder in office, we are actually referring to an industrial paper shredder. It consists of big rotors driven by 2 high-power motors. The screens are installed beneath the rotors.  Paper can go into machine hopper in bulk either by forklift or manually deliver. Once the papers are broken down between rotors, the pieces smaller than the screen opening exit from the screen.
