GDPR Compliant Shredders by Brand

With GDPR being the most important change in data privacy regulations in two decades, it is vital to arm your staff with the very best shredding equipment available. As the largest independent supplier of shredding machines in the UK we have negotiated some very special shredder offers from all the leading shredder manufacturers. Our Ruffles GDPR advice:

  • Choose the level of security that best suits your business - medium, high or highest
  • Purchase several individual shredders for each department and place on each floor
  • Never leave confidential data lying around or let un-shredded data leave your premises

Organisations must make sure that adequate focus is given to paper records management, as well as digital security, making sure that all paper documents are stored and destroyed appropriately and that employees remember the significance of paper security is key. Rexel Auto Feed shredders lend themselves nicely to aiding the adoption of good habits; shredding up to 500 sheets in just 14 seconds, Auto Feed machines are 98% faster than traditional manual feed shredders, and the batch shredding facilities suit the needs of busy professionals whose responsibility it is to securely destroy sensitive documents, enhancing their productivity whilst continuing to contribute towards GDPR compliance.

HSM are specialists in shredding and data protection solutions for paper, other media and data carriers. With the widest range of shredders on the market, “Made in Germany” quality and a reputation for long life, reliability and after sales support, HSM machines are ideal components of any organisations GDPR strategy. Be it general office shredding, sensitive HR or Finance documents or highly confidential personal, commercial or government classified information, HSM has the right solution. Using the shredding expertise from HSM’s dedicated sales team, organisations can be confident that they will be able to implement document destruction that fully supports their overall GDPR plan.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective from 25th of May 2018, will impact every company that holds personal data. This means that you also have responsibilities with paper-based files – you need to keep them secure and securely dispose of them by using a shredder. Fellowes can provide many options for the shredder user, from individual deskside machines, to multi-user machines suitable for use in utility room type environments. Fellowes recommends a minimum of cross cut security level (P-3 or P-4), and for greater security the option of P-5 Microshred is also available. Make sure you are GDPR compliant and protected against a massive fine of up to €20 million or 4% of your annual global turnover, whichever is greater.

It is vitally important that you fully prepare your company for GDPR, as current surveys and studies show that far too little has been done in preparation for the new European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). GDPR has significantly increased requirements to guarantee sensitive and personal data held on paper and computer media like hard drives is securely destroyed if not required. If you handle personalised data, it must be processed in a timely manner and stored and shredded when not required. With professional IDEAL document shredders, you can meet your GDPR requirements because your data is shredded directly at its source, ideally by individual workstations, and never has to leave your premises, so that you have a full audit trail of destruction if requested by the authorities.

The principles of GDPR data protection apply to any information concerning an identified or identifiable person. Personal data is any information that relates to any individual, whether it concerns their private, professional or public life. The data could be just a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank or other financial details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer’s IP address. As from May 2018 all Organisations will be required to record consent by a clear affirmative action before collecting or processing anyone’s personal data. KOBRA products will always work easily and efficiently to help your GDPR compliance, so be sure to use KOBRA shredders which are renowned for their exceptional quality, innovation and design to help with your GDPR compliance.
