DOCUMENT SHREDDING SERVICES
Document destruction is a fundamental aspect of your document management process. What this simply means is that inactive files that have reached their required retention periods must be destroyed, or, shredded once they have been imported into an electronic document management system (EDMS).
All business owners have a legal responsibility to dispose of sensitive and confidential documents when they are no longer required, regardless of the size of your business. Failure to do so could have serious consequences. The Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act is all about privacy, and needs to be considered in respect of the retention of records, security and protection of personal information. To prevent identity theft, and if your documents are not adequately protected, this can have a serious bearing on your business and could result in penalties as defined in the POPI Act.
