Why Responsible Data & Confidential Waste Destruction Is Important.
The secure and responsible destruction of data is a legal requirement under the Data Protection Act 2018 and is upheld in the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
Tougher penalties for non-compliance and breaches have been introduced, increasing fines from £50,000 to £17,000,000 or 4% of global turnover (whichever is greater). These regulations have given consumers more control over what companies are able to do with their data and how it’s handled, including introducing the right to be forgotten and requesting the secure destruction of all data within a 28-day period, including being able to evidence every step of the data handling process.
