Shredding Data Confidentially


Information forms an important part of any organization irrespective of the nature of business it has. There can be various kind of private information in any institute depending upon the kind of activities it carries. For example, the research and development offices can have some very confidential information about the various experiments and the results drawn, the formulas that can lead to the generation of something revolutionary in a particular sector, positive and negative features of any recent analysis that can affect the reputation of a product or a report containing information about the new ingredient that a manufacturing company plans to add to its product. Other organizations dealing in services usually keep record of the information about their clients and prospects and the employees working with the organization. The institutes like banks and financial institution, government offices, police, doctors and other such important places keep varied information about people from different walks of lives. We also give our personal details sometimes as a requirement of some survey and other times as an obligation for an application or a process initiation. It is assumed that all the details such provided are kept confidential by the respective companies, but over the time, this information starts getting obsolete or irrelevant due to constant up gradations and space also becomes a constraint to record and save the entire collection.

Under these circumstances when data clogging and security maintenance of the data becomes a concern, it is very important for every establishment to regularly destruct its undesired data. The destruction should also be done carefully as there is a lot of sensitive information that can be a real threat to safety of a person or place, a complete shredding under proper supervision should be practiced. In 1997, INFOshred was founded in British Columbia with the objective of complete shredding such information whether it is in the form of documents or electronic device. Known as a reliable information shredding company now, Infoshred works with many of its public as well as private sector clients who hire these destruction services on regular or periodical basis.


With Infoshred, the data destruction takes place on site of the company itself in big containers and on-site Mobile document shredding trucks that are equipped with highly efficient machines capable in destructing a volume with speed of around 5000 pounds paper per hour. This installation of containers or trucks depends upon the size of the lot that needs to be disposed off. The process of disposal is free of manual intervention and this is ensured by the CCTV cameras installed inside the containers and the trucks that no human interference took place during the process. The paper and the electronic data both can be destructed with these machines. The paper residual thus obtained is sent to the recycling plant for using as a raw material for the paper formation, thus saving the natural resources and the green environment.

Infoshred also provides a certificate to its client as a proof of destruction in the confidential manner. This certificate can be of great help if someone raises a doubt on the confidentiality of the personal information provided to that organization.
