The success and longevity of your company depends on a few factors. One core component is keeping business and client information secure. That’s where product destruction comes in.
Why Product Destruction is so Important?
Limiting access to sensitive information is the first step. When you’re done with that information, the next step is to get rid of it for good. Holding on to it leaves you vulnerable to attacks via identity theft, data breaches and compromised information.
By destroying business products you no longer use, it limits your risk of losing customers and damaging your company brand and reputation.
Who Should Use Product Destruction Services?
Most all companies have some type of confidential data in their procession, especially when it comes to employees. Any company that uses keyless entry by hand prints, passcodes, or badges should hire a product destruction service. If your company uses uniforms, makes patented products, or has outdated products it’s time to start destroying that old information.
Financial, legal and medical, education and government agencies industries are a few that use products that need destruction on a regular basis. While some companies still have an option of whether or not to shred or outsource destruction of materials, regulations require many companies to destroy information. GSA, GLA, FACTA, and HIPAA regulate industries that manage mass amounts of sensitive materials.
What Items Should you Destroy?
What’s the harm in not destroying old products? It can do a lot of damage. Previous employees could use or hand off uniforms and badges for unauthorized access to buildings and business property. Products with logos or defective items could leave you liable for damages if the public gets access to them.
To protect your business and brand, these are some of the items you should add to your product destruction list:
- Security Badges
- Outdated products
- Trading cards / Playing Cards
- Apparel and footwear
- Used protective equipment
- Sporting Goods
- Gaming Chips
- Defective items with Logos
