The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in working with personal data over the past 20 years.
An important part of the process of complying with the mandatory changes is not only the documents storage but also their destruction!
Various systems can be adopted in this regard, such as having a GDPR compliance department, having several shredders and people appointed to them or incineration of documents etc., but in any case they do not eliminate the subjective factor.
As certified GDPR compliance trainers we hire the services of a specialized company, CERTIFIED TO COLLECT, DESTROY AND ISSUE CERTIFICATES OF SERVICES and even better videos of the process to avoid any of the severe penalties that can be imposed (up to 4 percent of the annual income or 20 000 000 euro)
The attached picture is a simple visualization of the expanding issue with personal data protection. The rubbish containers are positioned across a bank branch and there are no other businesses around, so surely they were property of that bank!!
