Why does your business need Confidential Waste Collection service?
The Data Protection Act is a piece of legislation from the legal sector of the United Kingdom. It regulates how personal data is held and processed. One of the most important revisions in this act for confidential waste is the introduction of privacy by design. This new regulation mandates that there should be an end-to-end privacy that would cover all stages of data collection, processing, storage, transmission, and disposal.
The main aim behind privacy by design is to ensure that any company handling sensitive personal information in an office environment would be responsible for the security measures taken to ensure protection from cyber attacks or hacking attempts.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has tightened up how businesses and other organisations deal with personal data privacy protection.
Now, a serious data breach could cost up to 4% of worldwide annual turnover, or 20 million Euros, whichever is the higher.
Confidential documents and data must be held, processed, and destroyed securely. So, it’s vital that you deal with documents and media which contain confidential data safely such as names, addresses, phone numbers, emails, IP addresses, credit card numbers, and bank statements. It’s also important that you have an audit trail for your data, including certificates of secure collection and secure information destruction of the confidential waste to show the government your full compliance.
Waste collection and disposal services are used to store and dispose of confidential waste. With the increased data protection act, these services are becoming more and more important for businesses.
Companies need to comply with waste collection and disposal regulations such as the Data Protection Act 1998. This means that they need to get rid of any confidential documents and other information that is not required by law. They also need to protect themselves from any future penalties or fines that might be issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Confidential waste – Paper and media waste
From staff files and old invoices to customer letters and supplier orders, you need to keep your old documents containing confidential information safe and destroy them securely. It’s also easy to forget all the information you have on old media such as USB sticks, image cards, and mobile phone SIM cards.
