confidential data

To comply with the data protection act businesses must ensure that sensitive information does not leak into the public domain.

Let SITR take care of your confidential destruction and avoid the hidden costs of running your own in-house shredding operation:

  • cost of shredder
  • installation
  • maintenance
  • employee time to undertake shredding
  • floor space issues
  • health and safety – moving bags and bins, using machinery

SITR provides a one-stop management system to take care of all your office recycling and document shredding. Our complete package saves you time, money and administrative resources.

Furthermore, we provide you with a full audit trail and management reporting to allow you to fully monitor your recycling performance.

All our staff are security vetted to BS7858 standard giving you the peace of mind that your confidential information is in safe hands.

SITR will ensure your compliance with the Data Protection Act, the Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, the Landfill Directive and Hazardous Waste Regulations through:-

  • Audit trail reporting
  • Full management reporting
  • Certificates of Recycling and Destruction
  • Supporting your Corporate Social Responsibility policy and environmental commitment

Bank statements and business contracts are by no means the only documents that contain confidential information. In every business confidential materials are generated by almost every employee daily; from strategic planning documents to employee medical records. More materials than you might at first think contain private information that could be a security risk if in the wrong hands.

Identity theft is one of the most costly security risks that businesses now face. It’s a threat that can quickly destroy business reputation and security. The potential costs of security breaches of this type could run into millions of pounds, leading to dented credit ratings, angry or lost customers and irreparable damage to your reputation.

SITR develop bespoke secure shredding services to cater for your business and its requirements. Our customised programme will ensure that your business is protected from the threat of identity theft, whilst also remaining fully compliant with the relevant privacy regulations for your industry.

SITR will help you identify which office materials contain confidential or price sensitive information so that your staff can become better informed of the potential vulnerabilities that exist in your workplace.
