The Office Shredder is Not Your Friend
Many organisations shredding their private and confidential documents themselves, using an office shredder, think they are saving time and money.
But there are many hidden costs – and risks – to using an office shredder:
- The amount of time it takes employees to gather, sort, and shred the documents is often underestimated
- The reliability of employees to follow a secure document management process is usually inconsistent
- Paper waiting for the office shredder can be left somewhere that it can be taken or can easily be misplaced
- The strip shredding technology in most office shredders is inferior, unreliable, and can lead to documents being easily reconstructed.
