Identity theft is a real, unfortunate and threatening crime, that doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. In fact, we hear of information theft cases on the news all of the time in the United States, and even throughout the Hanover PA region. Due to cases rising at a rapid pace, it is more important today than ever before to take the necessary measures in protecting your business, customers, and employees from the threats associated with this crime.
Why Shred Your Confidential Documents?
Simply put, secure destruction is the only method of disposal that guarantees information is 100% unrecoverable. With that said, it should be done through a professional document shredding company like Tri-State Shredding, for shredding you can count on and trust. This is the most effective step in reducing the risks associated with information theft, and it’s the easiest decision you can make! Documents that have reached the end of their life-cycle or are no longer relevant to your business, should be securely disposed of through professional shredding. Tossing these documents in your recycling bin or worse, garbage, only invites the potential for danger to appear. If documents are discovered by the wrong individual who is seeking such confidential details to commit crime, you could be in serious trouble from both a reputation standpoint and a financial/legal one.
Keep in mind that securing information refers to more than just your old documents; electronic data such as what is stored on old hard drives, must also be destroyed in a proper manner. Electronic data if exposed, can be just as threatening as paper documents which means you need to be proactive in ensuring your company is adopting hard drive destruction services as well. Did you know that one single hard drive alone, can hold up to thousands of files? you have a legal obligation to keep your clients and employees’ identity protected, and if files pertaining to them are discovered on an old hard drive, you could be found responsible for this discovery if you did not take adequate steps in destroying this information.
