Don’t let your business get shredded by privacy laws!

The way businesses, government and other organisations deal with private data is a hot-button issue these days. With crimes like identity theft on the rise it’s no wonder the public is concerned about how their data is handled. One slip-up with a customer’s sensitive information might not only be a PR disaster, but also lead to serious legal consequences.

The handling of confidential information in Australia is regulated by the Australian Privacy Act (APA). Breaches of the law can result in fines up to a maximum of $420,000. While most businesses with a turnover below $3 million are not directly subject to the APA, any organisation that handles private information should conform to the Act to protect itself and its customers.

The APA stipulates that any private data that is no longer required must be completely erased. Sydney Document Shredding Service has been a leading name in document destruction since 1990.
