Confidential Paper Shredding In Limerick & Galway

Security in Shredding Confidential Paper Shredding

Why Should I Shred My Paper Documents?

Does your business or organisation use paper on a daily basis? Does this paper contain data of personal details? These are simple questions but if answered yes then you are required by law (both Irish and EU law) to ensure that your sensitive data is destroyed correctly.

If a data breach occurs, it will be your business or organisation that suffers with a hefty penalty or fine for the breach. Your current shredding company may not be liable for the breach. Ultimately it comes down to you to protect your data.

More than just a fine but the representation loss from a data breach can result in a severe loss of business if customers have no confidence with how their details are maintained in a secure manner.

How Do I Choose a Confidential Paper Shredding Company?

Any reputable shredding company will comply with Irish and EU data protection laws. Choose a shredding company that has Din 66399 Standard which is an EU directive and is used by Security in Shredding trucks when on site shredding paper documents.

A confidential shredding company that provides a Din level 6 shred, will destroy documents beyond recognition. Avoid using generic office shredders as they do NOT provide adequate data destruction. The paper shredded can be restored which is a huge data breach risk if continued.

Protecting your data is paramount for business success and recent changes to data protection laws

Reasons To Purge Your Data and Digital Media Destruction

Heartbleed Data Theft

At Security In shredding our purge clear out service and media destruction of electronic devices are a guaranteed method of data destruction. This form of data destruction ensures your data security is being maintained as with electronic devices there can be flaws and potential breaches that can be a major risk to a business or organisations data.

The Heartbleed Bug

An unexpected encryption flaw known as the Heartbleed Bug has been referred to as the biggest security threat the Internet has ever experienced. The Bug which is a severe vulnerability within the widely used OpenSSL cryptography software library has received the name “Heartbleed” from security researchers.

Open SSL software is used to encrypt information that you send to and from websites, examples of this information would be your login name and password and/or other sensitive information. SSL/TLS software provides communication privacy and security over the Internet for applications such as email, web, virtual private networks (VPNs) and instant messaging.

Within your browser you can recognise when websites encrypt information when you see a closed padlock symbol alongside the website address. The Heartbleed Bug enables anyone on the Internet to read memory of systems protected by the OpenSSL software.

This compromises the security keys used to identify service providers and encrypt the traffic, the actual content and the names & passwords of the users. The Bug essentially allows attackers to impersonate services and users by allowing them to eavesdrop on communications and steel data directly from the services and users.

As the bug allows hackers to exploit a flaw in the OpenSSL encryption software used by the majority of major websites changing your passwords will not matter if the website is still vulnerable as the website would have to update their software first.

To provide guidance and to help defend against this online tools such as The Heartbleed Test & Norton Safe Web – Heartbleed Check  have been created in order to test if a website has been compromised by the Heartbleed Bug.

How Heartbleed works

When sending information back and forth through a secure connection (E.g. Facebook – Gmail messaging) sometimes a computer will test to check if the other computer is still available. This is completed by the computer by sending a small packet of data called a “heartbeat” which is then confirmed. The flaw within the OpenSSL software enables hackers to use a fake packet of data which in turn tricks the corresponding computer into responding with data stored within its memory.

This flaw within the conventional encryption software is undetectable by current standards and has been active under the radar for a period of time in the region of two years. Google Security Researcher and security firm Codenomicon discovered the flaw and they said that even if you are not a frequent user of the internet, you are most likely affected by the bug – “You are likely to be affected either directly or indirectly.

OpenSSL is the most popular open source cryptographic library and TLS (transport layer security) implementation used to encrypt traffic on the Internet. Your popular social site, your company’s site, commercial site, hobby site, sites you install software from or even sites run by your government might be using vulnerable OpenSSL.”

How to stop the leak?

While the vulnerable version of OpenSSL is in use it can be abused. Fixed OpenSSL has been developed and released but it has to be deployed. Operating systems vendors, distribution vendors along with independent software vendors have to adopt the fix and notify their users as it becomes available for the software they use, operating systems and networked appliances.

This is a detailed report on the heartbleed bug. There are many bugs and issues regarding software and devices. Awareness to these issues is important for you and us. Ensuring your data security is maintained and compliance with data protection act.

5 Reasons To Hire an On-Site Paper Shredding Service

Security In Shredding on site service

At Security in Shredding our On site shredding is available for a scheduled call outs. Confidential shredding is available in Galway, Limerick and throughout Ireland.

Securing the confidentiality of data generated through business activity has always been of paramount importance for an organisation/individuals reputation. As competition increases, it is important to eliminate the risks that may lead to the loss of client business and severely damage their reputation.

While today much of the work is done online, the hard copies of some documents are still maintained for the purpose of information sharing or as documented records that need to be produced during meetings or during audit trials by regulatory authorities. To protect the information in these documents, the businesses therefore need to destroy and dispose it safely and responsibly.

Using a conventional office paper shredder could be an option but for higher volumes of documents with varying levels of data protection requirements and critical information contained on them, it is not viable and safe to use. This is when a professional paper shredding service comes helps the businesses securely dispose of their offices documents and comply with all relevant legislation.

Data Protection, Secure Paper Shredding

Following are the top 5 reasons why you should prefer an on-site paper shredding service over traditional office shredder:

  • Destroys the Document Completely: The office shredders shred the documents in strips that can easily reconstructed to retrieve the data. The on-site professional service guarantees the complete destruction of the document into cross cut particles, making it completely impossible for any person to reconstruct.
  • Facilitates Efficient Management of Resources: An office paper shredder occupies a lot of space and takes a lot of time to install and operate. You need to dedicate an employee for this task which normally takes half an hour or even more depending upon the volume of the documents to be shredded. In addition to that the issue with regards to deciding upon what needs to be destroyed and what can enter the traditional recycling streams.

The employee will also require the relevant training with regards to data protection if they are to be left with the responsibility of destroying the documents. At that time, the employee is not executing anything productive for future business. While half an hour or so may seem a small length of time at first but the annual figures will finally give you a clearer picture of how much time your employee has spent in this non productive activity.

  • Information Security: To shred the documents, you have to delegate a specific employee for this task which means you are giving all your company’s confidential information in the hands of a third person who may or may not be loyal to the company. Therefore, calling for an on-site paper shredding service is a better option because these people are only focused towards doing their job and they are not at all concerned about the information contained in the document.
  • Cost-effective: Hiring the services of a professional paper shredder saves you money because you don’t have to bear the maintenance and repair costs of the machine in addition to the wages and training expenses. Moreover, your employees will continue to earn more profits for the company by working on core business projects rather than engaging in paper shredding work.
  • Additional Services: Some paper shredding companies also provide additional services such as dismantling of IT equipment, electronic hard-drives destruction and consultancy to give a complete piece of mind to its clients. So, it is a one-stop shop for all your security needs.

With all these benefits, an on-site paper shredding service is certainly the best way to secure the business critical information. Always look for those companies that also offer additional services so you don’t need to go to different companies for your every security need.

Putting Costs Over Protection Does More Harm Than Good

Data proccesser and data commissioner

Data protection and your data protection strategy is ultimately down to you and your team to install and maintain. A confidential shredding specialist will help you with your data protection and destruction methods.

How your documents are handled and accessed must be established and in a format that is acceptable to your business or organisations practices.

A recent report from the Data Protection Commissioner (DPC Annual Report 2015) Ms Dixon says despite claims to the contrary, there is no inherent conflict between her office being able to hear complaints from individuals on the one hand and provide guidance to organisations who may perhaps be infringing people’s rights on the other.

Helen Dixon also said her office does not have the resources to replace the requirement for organisations to procure their own expert advice and build their own capacity when it comes to being data protection compliant

 

Digital Data just as vulnerable as Paper data

2015 saw email queries to the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner rise by 6% to 14,427, with an additional 16,713 phone enquiries and 885 postal requests for information.

In total, 932 complaints were opened, down 28 on 2014.

A record number of decisions under the data protection acts were made by Ms Dixon’s office , with CCTV in the workplace, direct marketing by SMS, spam emails and banks failing to keep personal contact information up to date the main problem for complainants.

62% of complaints focused on the right of people to access personal data held by others about them, with 11% centred on electronic direct marketing.

23 complaints were received from individuals who were unhappy at search engines’ refusal to delete search results about them under the “Right to be Forgotten” principle, nine fewer than in 2014.

The commission was also notified of 2,317 valid data security breaches in 2015, and increase of 129 year-on-year, with over half being unauthorised disclosures like postal and electronic communications.

Well, as I will explain to you, shredding companies destruct the information from company’s paper & electronic waste and recycle the same for their re usability in making newspaper, egg cartons and kitchen roll. After running some R&D, I have gathered some of the interesting facts you must know about shredding.

  • When 1 ton of paper waste is recycled, it actually saves 17 trees, 7000 Gallons of water and 4000 KW of energy. Also must be mentioned the land they accommodate to do so. The 17 trees are enough to consume 250 lbs of CO Way to Go!!

 

  • In 1988, when US top court quoted that any personal waste once thrown in the public bins will be under government authorities. Home shredding machines took a steep growth in sales.

 

  • Want to be one of the confidential shredding specialists? Well, to destruct anything you need to be certified to do so in line with European and Irish Standards. Simply providing a certificate of destruction is no longer good enough as any Company can simply construct a cert of destruction.

 

  • Some of the advanced machines are capable converting your A4 size paper into 100s of tiny pieces up to a minimum size of 3mm!! Within The EN 15713 shredding standard there are shred sizes, the most professional and secure shredding providers can offer various shred sizes from No. 1 right up to No. 8.

 

  • In 1979, The US embassy was attacked by some Iranian revolutionaries in order to retrieve their identity documents. As the documents were shredded in strips only, it was easy to retrieve info from them. These urged the need of cross cut shredders and were developed instantly after.

 

  • With the rise in technology, standard cross cut shredders can be reconstructed, it is advised that Shred Size No. 6 (320 mm squared particles) is the ideal shred for security and beyond reconstruction.

 

  • Last but not the least; Abbot Augustus Lowe founded the first ever shredding machine in 1909. Though it wasn’t massive, the latest of our shredders work on the derived principles of that machine.
