Confidential Paper Shredding Guidelines for Businesses

Businesses simply cannot afford to ignore how they protect consumer information, which is safeguarded under various federal accountability and privacy laws enacted within the last fifteen years. Not properly disposing of protected information can expose the organization to threats from the outside and open it up to getting sued or coming under investigation by government authorities for fraud or legislative noncompliance.

Medical, dental, financial, educational and corporate entities are all required to maintain a certain level of legislative compliance for document destruction under federal laws.

Also known as SOX compliance, this is closely tied to shredding of consumer-related information.
