Baxter Confidential Services
Increasing legislation and regulations means businesses and organisations need effective controls in place to manage sensitive information - both paper or electronic - and its disposal.
The Data Protection Act 1998 requires appropriate management and organisational procedural measures to be in place to prevent unauthorised or unlawful accessing of personal data and also to prevent accidental loss, destruction of or damage to that data. That means that not only does a business or organisation need to manage the secure disposal of the data, but also the disposal of redundant or broken equipment which stores that information. Failure to ensure that all information is destroyed can result in Crown Court Prosecution and unlimited fines of up to £500,000 (Ministry of Justice) including personal compensation claims.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) - EU Directive 2003 provides for safe electrical equipment disposal and recycling in accordance with the standards set out in the directive. This includes all IT equipment.
We provide a full range of confidential and secure document and electronic media destruction services and offer comprehensive advice to help you comply with legislation and regulations.
At Baxter Confidential we are committed to protecting the environment without compromising security and confidentiality and we recycle as much as possible - safely, legally and securely.
