Document shredding – why shred confidential information?

Your business’s most valuable asset is information – your financial records, personnel files, payroll data, client lists, contracts and marketing strategies. This information is often protected under lock and key until it is ready for disposal. At that stage, security is often ignored.

If client information, trade secrets and employees’ confidential details are thrown into a dustbin, they can easily be retrieved and leaked to competitors, used in fraudulent practices or become publicly available.

Many businesses think this will never happen to them. However, identity theft costs South Africa more than R1 billion each year, according to the South African Fraud Prevention Service. By disposing of your information in the right way, you can be sure it will never fall into the wrong hands.
