Protect Your Organization

Paper shredding and hard drive shredding effectively removes the pool of information from being accessed by anyone. It protects the organization and innocent third parties both known and unknown.

Avoid Loss

Known losses are gradual, purposeful losses due to embezzlement, identity theft, and/or fraud.

Avoid Exploitation

Unknown losses are when information is exploited by competitors or disgruntled employees for competitive advantages.

It’s the Law

Beginning with the 1974 Federal Privacy Act, the number of laws requiring businesses to protect personal information has exploded. A catalyst to the proliferation of laws was the 1988 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in California vs Greenwood that affirmed the right to “dumpster dive.” This ruling made it a necessity for every individual and business to shred their paper. Now laws like HIPAA and FACTA have further defined the need to shred.

These federal laws along with a score of state ones require all private information from employees and customers to be destroyed prior to disposal.

Shredding Services Save Money

Paper shredding is an easy, straight-forward, and low cost method for destroying information, and it simultaneously reduces costs associated records storage and handling. It’s environmentally friendly, as professional paper shredders reduce paper bits to a pulp and recycle them.

Document shredding services cost a few cents per pound, and compared to all the costs associated with data breaches, it’s a cheap from of insurance. Secure containers are free to keep at your office so you can build up your materials and shred on an as-needed basis.

Secure Shredding is Easy

By using a secure shredding service you save employees time so they can focus on their jobs instead of the growing pile of files that need shredding. Having a secure document collection bin and routine scheduled services makes the elimination of important information routine.
