What Shredding Security Level Do You Need?

Many companies shred documents to ensure that sensitive information remains secure. However, if you’re not using the right shredding security levels, you may be putting yourself, your customers or your employees at risk.

Understanding Shredder Security

Shredding levels are standardized by the German Institute of Standardization and are called DIN levels after the organization’s German name. The DIN 32757 standard for paper is divided into five levels:

A sixth level, designated as High Security Destruction of Top Secret Documents, shreds paper so small that it resembles dust and was once considered the most secure level. However, the recently released DIN 66399 standards are making changes to paper security. The update includes three protection classes, six material classifications and seven shredding security levels. Shredders are being updated to meet these standards and provide greater protection for individuals and businesses.
