A Document Retention Policy Guide from Shred-it

Does everyone in your organisation know which documents to shred and which should be kept – and for how long?

Without a document retention policy in place, Australian organisations of all sizes risk data loss, information security breaches and falling foul of data privacy legislation if confidential personal information is kept longer than necessary for the purpose it was collected. 

Document retention considerations are key in ensuring the secure and efficient flow of information and for providing clear guidance on keeping records – in both hard and soft copy - within any business.  In this document retention guide you’ll discover:

  • Factors you need to consider when developing a document retention policy
  • Retention guidelines for certain key types of document
  • Secure destruction recommendations
  • Useful further information sources
