Comply with Laws Mandating Shredding
We protect our customers by providing highly secure onsite and offsite shredding, helping them comply with HIPAA, FACTA, GLBA, as well as other federal and state information destruction laws. More than 40 federal laws mandate that all business, healthcare, and financial institutions protect the confidential information of their clients.
Every Business Has Information That Requires Destruction
All businesses have reasons to destroy confidential data. Customer lists, price lists, sales statistics, drafts of bids and correspondence, and even memos contain information about business activities which would interest any competitor. Every business is also entrusted with information that must by kept private. Employees and customers have the legal right to have this data protected.
Without the proper safeguards, information ends up in the dumpster where it is readily, and legally, available to anybody. The trash is considered by business espionage professionals as the single most available source of competitive and private information from the average business. Any establishment that discards private and proprietary data, without the benefit of destruction, exposes itself to the risk of criminal and civil prosecution, as well as the costly loss of business.
Incidental Business Records Discarded On A Daily Basis Should Be Protected
Without a program to control it, the daily trash of every business contains information that could be harmful. This information is especially useful to competitors because it contains the details of current activities. Discarded daily records include phone messages, memos, misprinted forms, drafts of bids and drafts of correspondence. All businesses suffer potential exposure due to the need to discard these incidental business records. The only means of minimizing this exposure is to make sure such information is securely collected and destroyed.
