Law firms will stockpile considerable volumes of paper. Whilst it's essential to store these documents for a statutory period, there will be a time to dispose of them.

Legal Sector

Law firms are warehouses of confidential and private information. It’s a necessity of the profession. But with numerous high-profile breaches in recent years, how firms collect, store, and destroy that information is coming under increased scrutiny. While many firms have taken strident and practical steps to safeguard their confidential information, many have not.

Protecting your law firm from the risk and penalties of an information security breach means more than just managing your client’s documents. For example, suppose you have financial reports, human resource forms, or payroll statements. In that case, your firm could be at risk of fines, lost revenue, and the loss of reputation should any of your confidential information get into the wrong hands.

We understand that confidentiality is critical within the legal sector in Ireland. We can help ensure that sensitive and confidential legal documents are securely and safely destroyed according to GDPR, data protection, and regulatory requirements.
Data and information management are essential for every business and paper, and document shredding is a vital part of the process. From making sure that data is accessible and well organised to avoiding breach or loss of data, a comprehensive information management strategy necessarily has to include a shredding process.

It’s essential for any firm today to ensure that document and paper shredding is appropriately handled, both from the point of view of avoiding a breach and supporting client service and compliance.
