Why Is Confidential Waste Destruction Important?

Under the Data Protection Act 1998, all personal information that is stored by an has to be securely maintained as well as being correctly disposed of, ensuring that any information deemed confidential or personal is not accessible to others. Any breach of the Data Protection Act can have huge repercussions for organisations, including fines and even imprisonment.
 
In the digital age, making sure that all confidential information is kept safe from those who might seek to use it fraudulently or for financial gain is paramount. According to the fraud prevention organisation, Cifas, company directors are twice as likely as other members of the public to become the victims of identity theft.
 
There were more than 189,000 cases of identity fraud in the UK. The cost of identity fraud amounts to nearly £2 billion every year. Therefore, it’s crucial that businesses dispose of their confidential waste appropriately.
 
Additionally, according to the UK GDPR (UK guide to data protection) any breach (either physical or digital) that isn’t swiftly and decisively may result in significant problems. This includes:
 
  • Losing control of an individual’s personal data
  • Limiting an individual’s rights
  • Discrimination
  • Identity theft or fraud
  • Financial loss
  • Unauthorised reversal of pseudonymisation
  • Reputational damage
  • Loss of confidentiality or personal data protection
  • The likelihood of significant social or economic disadvantage
