In light of several cases of data breaches and identity theft, Bee'ah is urging businesses in the UAE to employ proper document disposal procedures to reduce such incidents which could lead to security breach.
"Organisations face a significant challenge - how to dispose of their outdated storage media in a secure and safe manner. By eliminating this storage space provides companies with the opportunity to upgrade their equipment and software, create new office space,however it also poses a hazard.
