Most offices produce a great deal of paper documents. Many of these contain sensitive information that must inevitably be destroyed as per the Australian Federal Privacy Act 1998 (Cth).
The potential harm caused by mismanagement of sensitive documents and materials is a great risk for businesses. Your business records, employee information and client data obviously needs to be secure and when the time comes for this information to be destroyed that needs to be handled in a secure way.
Clients need to be absolutely confident that any documentation that passes through your hands is dealt with in a sensitive and responsible manner. The privacy of your business information and client information is a paramount consideration in any responsible business.
