Companies have enough to think about without needing to worry about security. Technology keeps evolving, and businesses across industries need to adapt to each change or risk getting overtaken by rivals.

The idea of security used to mean CCTV cameras, locks and alarms. Today’s companies need to ensure that the data in their possession remains confidential — they have sensitive info pertaining to their own trade secrets and proprietary information, as well as financial and personal customer data.

Modern information security companies understand the needs of today’s businesses, and that’s why professional shredders offer security that is both total and convenient. Read on to learn about what makes us Ontario’s source for mobile document shredding that saves you time, stress, and money. 

Mobile Shredding

Depending on the nature of the work, you may have both a legal and commercial reason to keep sensitive information private. Naturally, you don’t want rivals to learn sensitive information about your company that could give them a competitive edge, but you may have customer or patient data that you are legally bound to keep private.

This applies especially to those working in sectors such as medicine or in dentistry. Absolute Destruction provides information security that gives you total peace of mind, but our goal is to deliver convenient services that save you time. Our mobile shredding truck plays a large role in this.

Data Destruction

Every business still has many sensitive paper documents, but we live in a technological age where a lot of information is stored on electronic devices. It’s essential that this equipment be discarded safely: it can’t be simply thrown into the garbage.

Electronic devices need to have their microchips fully pulverized, so the data on them cannot possibly be retrieved. This is the only way to get full peace of mind. Some forms of electronic devices immediately pop into mind when you’re considering potential data liabilities, but others might surprise you:

  • Computers
  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • Smartphones
  • Photocopier or printer memory cards
  • USB/flash drives
  • Hard drives

If you have old electronic devices that your company no longer uses, the safest course of action is to have them professionally shredded. Their continued existence is just a data liability that needs to be eliminated.

Today’s global businesses landscape is as competitive as ever, with new markets opening up and old ones expanding. Companies want to focus their attention on trying to better meet the needs of their customers, clients and patients — get in touch today when you need to prevent a data breach quickly and effortlessly, so you can spend your time and energy where it counts.
