It is worthwhile to have a secure procedure for how to dispose of confidential paper and storage media, destroy hard drives and manage secure document destruction. Personal data should not end up in the wrong hands as it can harm your business. There is only one way to make sure your secrets stay secret – by completely destroying them.

Weak spots in traditional document management

Disposing of documents in an ordinary waste basket or ordinary trash bags increases the risk of confidential information being disclosed. Here are three areas which may result in disclosure of sensitive information.

Waste baskets

If documents containing sensitive information end up in waste baskets or unlocked garbage rooms, there is a risk that people who are not authorized to view sensitive information will get access to it.


Recycling companies which do not offer confidential waste disposal services load intact, unredacted documents for transport. This gives unauthorized persons the opportunity to access sensitive data.

Sorting systems

At facilities that are not subject to high security requirements, employees and volunteers can read, share and steal sensitive data while performing sorting work.
