Shredding at the source—the essential security measure
The F.B.I. estimates that U.S. businesses lose tens of billions of dollars every year due to theft of company data. All the electronic security measures in the world are useless if you’re throwing out confidential hard copies and disks by the truckload. Putting your trust in an outside shredding service to dispose of confidential data for you is not the answer. By outsourcing your company’s document disposal, you effectively relinquish control of the program. In addition, the costs associated with shredding services are at astronomical levels and are not going to decrease. The surest and most economical way to protect your company from data or identity theft is to shred sensitive documents in-house, at the source–in the hardened steel cutting shafts of a Destroyit® business shredder.
Proper destruction of information is a necessary business activity
All companies share the same risks. Identity theft is America’s fastest growing crime, affecting millions of people annually in the U.S. alone. Theft of company records is the leading source of identity theft and every company is legally responsible for safeguarding employee or client information. Increasing numbers of federally mandated privacy acts, such as FACTA, HIPAA and Gramm-Leach-Bliley have been enacted to ensure that sensitive consumer information is adequately protected. In addition, a company could forfeit its legal rights to defend company secrets and proprietary knowledge if it fails to protect that information through improper disposal. Simply put, failure to shred sensitive documents before they leave your control puts your entire business in jeopardy.
