Secure document shredding: identity theft and theft of personal information is becoming an increasingly common concern for both individuals and business in Australia in recent years. It is almost every month that the press reports an incident of personal information being stolen by criminals from either electronic or tangible sources.


As a responsible and trustworthy business, it is of extreme importance to keep client and customer data confidential as the chance of a leak could have terrible consequences for your ongoing business viability.

Most businesses collect sensitive information and data from both clients and employees such as names, dates of birth, postal addresses, Medicare numbers etc. In various States and Territories, numerous laws are in place governing how sensitive information is stored and secured, and when it should be destroyed. Many industries also have secure document shredding or destruction guidelines such as the medical sector, the banking and finance industry and insurance.


The Australian Attorney General’s Department estimates that identity crime costs Australia more than $1.6bn each year, with the great majority due to credit card fraud, identity theft and scams.
