Time & Money: Outsourcing your shredding and document destruction is more secure and less expensive than shredding yourself.
The Law: An increasing number of laws actually require organizations and industries to shred certain sensitive documents or face steep fines.
Identity Theft & Privacy: All businesses deal with information that employees and/or customers consider confidential. You are legally obligated to protect that information. The trash is the single most available source of competitive and private information from the average business.
Your Public Image: Privacy is a very important and timely consumer awareness issue. Confidential information in your dumpster is an easy target for reporters and could become tomorrow’s headlines. You not only protect employees and customers when you shred; you also protect your company’s image.
Trade information: Casual disposal of information has been the basis for courts to deny trade information rights—if you don’t take precautions to protect your trade information, the courts won’t either.
Just Recycling is Not Enough: Simply recycling sensitive information does not protect you or your business from legal consequences or embarrassment. Documents left in or found in recycling containers could be damaging to your business, your employees and/or your customers.
