Information Security Laws Do Not Stop at the Office Door

What to know about Work From Home Shredding Services

Transitioning to remote work from office life is never an easy task. Going from the structure of an office or cubicle to a dining table or couch is enough of a challenge without the addition of kids, pets, and other distractions throughout the workday. One thing your employees shouldn’t have to worry about, however, is the security of important company and customer data. If your employees deal with large amounts of paperwork in their home office setting, it’s important to consider how those documents are being destroyed after they are no longer needed.

Privacy laws that were created to protect individual and company information from being compromised also extend to work from home, so it is vital that businesses take steps to protect data while their employees are working remotely. Scheduling routine work from home paper shredding services is a great way to keep old paperwork from piling up and becoming a security risk. 

At Home Shredding Service

Keep company data secure with a paper shredding program

No matter how conscientious employees are when they work from home, the simple fact that they are away from a secure office environment creates inherent security concerns. If documents are not secured in a locked filing cabinet or other secure place, they become vulnerable to theft or being misplaced. Even something as seemingly innocuous as having someone over to perform maintenance work in the home can put company data at risk if papers are left out where anyone can find them. 

Even if documents are put away when an employee is no longer using them, documents shredded at home can pose security risks too. Paper that has not been shredded professionally can easily be put back together by criminals going through the trash or recycling bin, putting information at risk. Don’t let your employees struggle with home office shredders that break easily, are unreliable and use subpar shredding methods. A professional shredding machine will irreversibly damage documents so that they can’t be put back together, and a secure chain of custody means shredded papers will never end up in the wrong hands.
