The BSIA is the Trade Association for the professional security industry with its members adhering to strict quality standards. The standards and operating practices surrounding the disposal of confidential information were improved recently with the introduction of a new European Standard, EN 15713:2009.
EN 15713:2009 describes the essential requirements and operating procedures for a professional information destruction company, including employment practices such as the security vetting of all staff members and details relating to the security of its premises by means of monitored intruder alarms and CCTV systems. Specific rules are set down for the actual destruction of data, incorporating material-specific shred sizes, and requirements for the security of vehicles used both for the collection and on-site destruction of confidential waste. As well as helping to ensure the highest standards, EN 15713:2009 provides a valuable new benchmark to assist users in choosing a provider.
Knowing that Russell is at the forefront of the association encourages the Shred Secure Team to keep to the high levels of security they have become renowned for, as well as maintaining the commitment to clients in delivering outstanding Customer Service.
