Privacy laws and data protection require appropriate controls to be in place to demonstrate that your organization takes the necessary steps to protect the information it collects and processes. Secure data destruction should be an important part of every organization's security plan.

At Crown, information is protected at every stage of the destruction process. If required, we provide waste sacks, locked consoles, bins and/or containers on-site to safely store information before collections. This ensures it is not accessible by any unauthorized persons.  

In addition, all collections are undertaken by trained and vetted staff, and materials are loaded into secure vehicles and transported to a destruction center.
