B&M Secure Shredding advise public sector customers to remain vigilant

Categories: B&M News

As members of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) B&M Secure Shredding are today reminding all public sector organisations of the importance of destruction of sensitive items and materials with a qualified and accredited secure shredding service provider.B&M Shredding Director

B&M Secure Shredding work with customers across education, healthcare, civil service, local authorities and the emergency services to ensure confidential paperwork and data do not fall into the wrong hands. Offering both regular shredding by DBS qualified drivers where lockable consoles are placed on site and collected on a regular basis, as well as archive clear-outs, B&M shred and recycle all paperwork to BSIA standards which is then also 100% recycled.

THE BSIA have issued classifications of sensitive materials which include ‘Top Secret’, ‘Secret’ and ‘Official’. With ‘Official’ being the category that the majority of information that is created or processed by the public sector belongs to. This includes routine business operations and services, some of which could have damaging consequences if lost, stolen or published in the media, but are not subject to a heightened threat profile. 95% of all sensitive material created within the public sector is estimated to fall within this category. Examples – medical records, HR records, electoral registers, X-rays, invoices, payroll documents.

Paul Curtis, Director of B&M Secure Shredding said “Our expertise lies with ensuring a fully compliant service with no hassle which provides not only a cost-effective solution, but also safeguards confidential information and ensures compliance with the Data Protection Act. We urge all public sector organisations to be vigilant and ensure they operate within the constraints of the law and best practice, through introducing a shredding service, either regularly or for archive clear-out purposes”
