Document Shredding: Does your business need it?
Perhaps you’ve seen an Infoshred Truck on the highway or near your office. Maybe you have thought, “We don’t need Shredding pick up, we can do it ourselves.” Our philosophy is, document shredding isn’t just a matter of storage or employee hours, it’s good for your business. Let’s review some reasons why…
Information is one of the single most valuable assets you’ll ever have, whether it’s your own personally identifiable information (PII) or that of your customers. Data thieves can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage with just a few pieces of information, like a name and a home address. There are numerous state and federal laws dictating precisely how it should be handled, used, and discarded. Even if you don’t work in an industry influenced by these laws, you still have a responsibility to protect the information in your possession.
When papers are thrown into the trash or recycling bin, they leave your control. Anyone can find them and look at the information they hold. Secure document shredding is both the fastest and most effective solution to this problem.
If you decide to shred your documents internally, just how much will that cost you? You may pay a few thousand dollars for an office shredder, then you assign an employee to process, shred, and recycle the shredded material. How much is that costing you per month, just in terms of lost employee time and productivity? Are the documents for shredding stored somewhere safe and secure until they can be shredded, or are they all piled in a box in the hallway or other unsecure location? Even with the best of intentions, your in-house shredding operation is leaving you vulnerable, costing you money and taking an employee away from their work.
