Confidential Destruction Solutions (CDS) provides a host of services to help government bodies and private enterprises comply with the Privacy Act – from document shredding right through to waste management. Our team of CDS representatives are on-hand to help you with your requirements, and can offer sound advice and solutions to meet your needs.
It is not just good business practice to correctly dispose of sensitive and personal information: it is the law. Simply discarding this information can result in your organisation becoming liable, due to risk of the information becoming public knowledge, or even used to enable identity theft.
With CDS, you can be sure your sensitive information is treated with the confidentiality and security it requires. As part of the Grace Group of companies, we are able to draw on over 100 years of experience providing professional services to businesses across Australia, ensuring their needs are met every step along the way.
Australians lose up to $1.4 billion annually due to personal fraud, either through identity theft or manipulation. It takes as little as two pieces of personal data in the form of council rates, bills and bank statements for someone to establish a false identity.
As a collector of private information, you have a legal responsibility under The Privacy Act 1988 to securely store and dispose of any personal information acquired while undertaking business. For more information on your responsibilities go to http://www.oaic.gov.au.
CDS has a variety of options on offer for secure destruction to suit small, medium and large organisations. For paper documents, we can supply clean, locked secure bins in either 240L or 120L capacity to your office or home. You can select a one off service for an annual clean up or house move, or permanent bins that we regularly service for you.
CDS also collects and securely destroys:
Computers, faxes and copiers, ensuring all data held on any hard drives is erased permanently
