Protecting their data from the moment it’s collected until its final disposal is a big responsibility. Without proper safeguards, you put their privacy and your business at risk. In this blog, we discuss the benefits of a professional shredding service.

Federal and State Privacy Law Compliance

The government has laws and regulatory standards concerning consumer privacy. Failure to comply with state and federal privacy laws can lead to costly non-compliance fines and damage your reputation. A professional shredding service helps you meet HIPAA, FACTA, SOX, GLB, and state requirements.

Identity Theft Protection

Identity theft is a big problem, and businesses are prime targets for thieves who steal confidential personal, financial, and medical data. A professional shredding service eliminates negligent information disposal risks that put your employees and customers at risk of identity theft.

Enhanced Productivity

Researchers have proven that paper clutter disrupts workplace productivity. Routine shredding of unwanted documents frees up space so everyone in your company is as efficient as possible. Yet, few businesses set aside time to get rid of old paper records. A professional shredding service saves you the hassle and expense of shredding documents in house.

Your shredding partner works with you to create a customized shredding schedule. Once your schedule is set, you never have to worry about shredding again. Shredding collection containers are placed in convenient locations throughout your facility so you and your employees can securely dispose of outdated business documents in a fraction of the time it takes to use a paper shredder.
