Confidential & Secure Paper Shredding Services
The British Security Industry Association has stated in a report published by Experian (11/12/03) that many companies are too relaxed in their handling of confidential material and has advised them to use the services of their affiliated secure shredding companies. The report was based on research into the contents of 71 commercial organisations' bins. Below details what these companies discarded as a percentage:
- 45% - headed paper
- 24% - directors' signatures
- 44% - whole invoices
- 20% - bank account details.
These findings, says the report, proves a direct link between this relaxed approach to shredding confidential information and the cost of identity fraud in the UK - currently at a cost of £1.34 billion.
