Pulp’s ISIA Membership And Our New Service.

In this months blog we let companies know about Pulps new service and the importance of our membership with ISIA. Almost all companies produce confidential material on a regular basis. Confidential data can be anything from customer details, employee records to financial information. The data can be stored on a variety of media ranging from paper to CDs and hard drives. In addition to the commercial damage that can be caused by a data breach as a result of not correctly disposing of such material, a company may also find itself violating the Data Protection Act (2003).

However, following the creation of the Irish Security Industry Association’s (ISIA) Secure Data Destruction Division, this guidance document has been developed to assist companies in choosing a Data Destruction provider in Ireland.

Pulp are a proud member of the Irish Security Industry Association’(ISIA) Secure Data Destruction Division. Every ISIA member like Pulp have been chosen to join an association with a long tradition of driving best practice and raising standards throughout the security domain. Each member has signed up to the ISIA’s Bye-Laws, Code of Ethics, Complaints and Disciplinary Procedure and requirements to meet specific standards.

In previous blogs we have discussed EN15713. This covers all aspects of data destruction and specifies standards and measures which must be adhered to in order for service providers to receive this certification. The standard includes everything in the industry which Pulp meets all requirements
