"Why Should I Shred My Documents and Files?"

  • Public Image: Leaked or discovered documents can jeopardize the public’s perception of your company. These days, dumpster diving has become a common journalistic practice. A thorough data destruction practice can ensure that company privacy is maintained and the power of information distribution remains in your hands.
  • Your Customers: Your customers trust your company with sensitive and personal information. Proper data locking and destruction practices add an extra layer of comfort and security, helping to reduce incidents of potential identity theft and information abuse.
  • Your Employees: Employees, both current and past, have legal rights to require the shredding of their documents before they’re discarded. Insurance Records, Employment Applications, Tax Forms, and Accident Reports are all examples of information that must be legally be protected.
  • Company Ethics: In these days, it’s very important to integrate the highest ethical standards into your company practice. Disposing of data recklessly exposes all shareholders to the many preventable risks of today’s world- such as identity theft and exposing in-company trade secrets. Also, the United States Court System has declared that they will not recognize trade information protections if the company does not take every recommended legal step to protect the information themselves. In short, the United States Justice System says that information ownership rights are forfeited to discarded information.
  • The Law: An increasing number of laws actually require organizations o shred their documents or they may be held liable with steep fines imposed. The Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that requires protection of sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) helps prevent identity theft and credit-related fraud. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 199 (GLBA) requires financial institutions to protect the privacy of consumer information and mandates that companies provide consumers with privacy statements that describe in detail the companies’ information-sharing policies and practices. These are just three laws that all require physical safeguards such as shredding document destruction to meet regulation requirements.
