Paperless office? Here’s why you still need a document destruction plan

Lately, we’ve had a few business customers tell us with great confidence, “Oh, we don’t need a document destruction service – we’re a paperless office!” Their faces quickly fall however when we ask a few questions and they realise that perhaps their office isn’t as paperless as they thought, and their business is exposed to significant security risks.

Are you really paperless?

Take a moment to stop and think about your business and how your employees go about their day. Say that all your forms are created and stored electronically, and that all documents are scanned and filed electronically. You’re probably sitting there thinking you’re doing a great job and no longer need to have massive filing cabinets taking up valuable and often expensive office floor space.

But – take a look around. Are your employees writing notes about clients on paper notebooks? Probably yes. How are those notebooks stored and destroyed? Can you be 100% confident that there isn’t any confidential data about your business or your customers in those hand-written notes? And what about the forms that have been physically printed, signed, scanned and electronically filed? What’s the plan for the destruction of those original documents?
