Shredding Services For The
Education Industry

Secure Shredding and Data Destruction Services for the
Education Industry

The education sector is of immeasurable value for the knowledge it imparts. However, in the eyes of data thieves, schools, colleges, and universities are also treasure troves of highly confidential information, both on-site and online.

Within these educational institutions, an array of sensitive data is stored, ranging from pupil and employee records to financial documents, old computers, and disused hard drives. Safeguarding this wealth of information is paramount.

Since the introduction of GDPR, the procedures employed by educational institutions in the acquisition, storage, and disposal of data are bound to face heightened scrutiny. The regulatory framework of GDPR places an increased emphasis on data protection and privacy, underscoring the necessity for these institutions to uphold the highest standards in data security.

ZircoSHRED, with its suite of services encompassing secure data destruction, stands as a crucial partner in ensuring the protection of sensitive information. From securely disposing of old computers and hard drives to shredding sensitive documents, ZircoSHRED guarantees the confidentiality and integrity of data.

The commitment to data security within the education sector extends beyond compliance with regulations. It underlines the dedication to preserving the trust and reputation of these institutions.

Choose ZircoSHRED to safeguard the sensitive data that the education sector holds and to maintain the highest standards of data security. Protect your institution. Protect your reputation. Get ZircoSHRED.

Protect Education Data With Our Secure Shredding Services

Not everything your organisation collects, stores, or handles is digital. When education records and documents are printed, or reports are circulated for a meeting, they are at risk of getting into the wrong hands if they are not handled and disposed of properly and securely.

For that reason, every educational organisation is at risk regardless of size, type, or location. But in an industry that relies on privacy, the reality is that many information breaches happen not just because of inferior firewalls or weak passwords, but because of employee error or negligence. So, you may be doing everything you can but one member of staff casually dropping an old report or records into a recycling bin can undo everything.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Applies to all companies that handle the personal data of EU residents, including companies that are established outside the EU if they offer goods or services to EU residents or monitor their behaviour.

Learn to recognise the risks

In the education industry, it’s a safe bet that every document you or your employees handle contains some form of confidential information. Whether it’s education records or reports, or your own financial reports and billing data, you have a lot of information to secure.
If you create, collect, or dispose of these types of documents, you and your organisation could be at-risk for an information breach.
