KEEPING DOCUMENTS SAFE DURING THEIR TRANSIT
In the era of big data and privacy concerns, keeping your personal information safe and your business confidential documents of your business is a must. Even now, when most of these records are digital, small companies still produce high volumes of physical documents.
These might contain sensitive and private information that is susceptible to theft or could be gathered by malicious third parties just waiting to get their hands on them. For this reason, secure document destruction is the best way to avoid headaches and have peace of mind that your private information is being handled by experts. With more than a decade of experience in the business of paper shredding and secure document destruction, we can do this for you.
When you order our confidential bags, they will be delivered to the exact location you requested. Then they will be picked up by a driver who is trusted, and police checked. After being collected, you can rest assured that they are in professional hands as our vehicles are tracked 24/7 from your chosen location until they arrive at the secure destruction facilities. Your documents are secured until the last second when the confidential bags are shredded and completely destroyed forever.
While you can still buy a paper shredder for your home or office, the majority of them use a method called strip shredding where documents can again be reconstructed with time and patience. We use an industrial method called cross-cut shredding, destroying the paper completely and with no chance of being reconstructed again. On top of that, we will issue you a certificate of destruction at no charge to confirm the destruction.
“The Federal Government has announced major changes to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act), including additional powers for the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), and tougher penalties for misuse of personal information. The new regime will increase the maximum penalties for misuse of personal information by entities covered by the Privacy Act, from $2.1 million for serious or repeated breaches to the greatest of $10 million, three times the value of any benefit obtained through the misuse of information, or 10% of a company’s annual domestic turnover”*.
Using our services you can be sure and confident that no hefty penalties will come to bite you in the future. We put in practice the best protocols and highest standards in the industry to avoid any mistake and be sure that all documents will be securely destroyed.
