To Celebrate European Data Protection Day Security in Shredding whom are Data Destruction Experts, are holding a Free Shredding Event in Mungret Recycling Centre in Limerick in conjunction with Limerick City and County Council.

You may ask why is the event free? To answer your question, we aim to increase the importance of Data Protection Awareness by running this event. All shredded paper material will then be recycled resulting in reducing the amount of paper waste entering landfill. Security in Shredding will also be available to speak to SME’s about the importance of implementing a “confidential paper shredding service and improving staff awareness and risk identification as they are of significant importance to any organisation”.

EU Data Protection

Within the announcement The Commission stated that the current framework – known as the 19995 EU Data Protection Directive is outdated. The main reasons for the framework to be outdated are due to rapid technology change and globalisation. These points are important to consider when deciding upon the best option to securely destroy your sensitive paper data through a confidential paper shredding service. Whether the service will be an onsite paper shredding service or an on-demand offsite paper shredding service it is important to ensure that your paper shredding company is a Data processor. You can see the list of registered Irish data processing firms here.

The new Data Protection framework will be a regulation which means all member states will have to abide by the rules. The rules will go into effect two years after they have been adopted by the member countries which is expected to be in 2018-2019.
