Protecting your data

INCREASED Government legislation on data protection means there is growing demand for an efficient way to dispose of confidential documents at work and at home and this has given specialists at Simply Shredding an opportunity to expand their network to Northampton.

Kevin Grice, who already runs the successful Simply Shredding operations in Milton Keynes, Luton and Bedford, is delighted to add Northampton to his area.

The network, which stretches across the United Kingdom, works with a wide range of clients, including private individuals.

Kevin said: “With the best will in the world we are a long way away from a paperless society but there is increasing awareness about the importance of protecting your identity. We can offer the same peace of mind to individuals as we do to our business clients.”

For improved security, all Simply Shredding depots use cross-cut shredding machines which cut paperwork vertically and horizontally. The pile of shredded paper, which resembles a giant heap of confetti, is usually baled so it can be recycled into paper, including toilet rolls.

Each client receives a Certificate of Destruction to confirm the shredding process has been completed. A wide range of clients in the private sector and public organisations, including schools, law firms and accountants, have already recognised the benefits of using a shredding service.

“Unfortunately, one of the fastest growing frauds is to steal identities and often this is made so much easier because the paperwork has been put in the bin,” said Kevin, who set up the business with the support of a former Police Crime Prevention officer.

Shredding services are a vital tool for businesses and public organisations who are under pressure to protect data and fulfil GDPR regulations. Simply Shredding Northampton has a wide range of packages to meet the different needs and ensure clients are legally compliant. These range from supplying shredding bags to delivering wheelie bins or installing office consoles. Some clients simply want a one-time-only collection of old records while others opt for a monthly collection.

Other services include the removal and recycling of old IT equipment including laptops and monitors.
