Why Document Shredding is Critical for Your Business in 2018

PROSHRED® Syracuse- Document Shredding is Key

Businesses can’t afford to carelessly dispose of sensitive documents in 2018. Identity thieves and other criminals hunt for documents that provide the data they need to compromise sensitive information. The federal and state governments have enacted laws that require businesses to safeguard documents that contain personal and confidential information, particularly in the case of responsible document shredding.

Failure to safeguard private information has resulted in costly lawsuits from both government and private parties. Businesses are often deep-pocket targets for litigators. To be protected, businesses must be able to demonstrate that they have procedures in place for handling all sensitive information and that all documents are shred at the time of disposal.

Businesses must protect customer data. Breaches have resulted in criminals stealing customer social security numbers, banking information, driver’s license numbers, and other data that can be used to turn the victim’s life upside down. No business wants to suffer the damage to its reputation that happens when it must inform customers that their personal information has been potentially compromised. No employee should ever be allowed to remove sensitive documents, and a chain of custody must exist to ensure that sensitive documents are stored securely or shred.

Companies are also responsible to protect employee data. Employee personnel files and other documents contain enough information for criminals to perpetuate large scale damage. Scam artists often target human resources offices, employee benefits firms, insurance companies, and any other business that collects sensitive employee information.

Syracuse companies protect against customer- and employee-data theft and proprietary company information with a number of invaluable services offered by PROSHRED®.
