Documents You Should be Shredding

Every company regardless of its industry or size goes through a considerable amount of paper on a regular routine. Whether it’s shared, stored, or printed, paper is still a primary source for recording vital information among Syracuse organizations. Unless your company has implemented an organized internal, document management process, it can be difficult deciding what documents no longer require storing and can be shred securely instead.

PROSHRED Syracuse will gladly assist your company in determining which documents should be securely stored away, and which should be professionally shredded.  What is the importance of implementing a shredding program for your business? If confidential information is exposed unknowingly, you are putting your customers and employees at risk, and there is the potential for a data breach to take place.  It’s simply not smart business practice to toss sensitive documents in the trash and expect them to be safe.  As a matter of fact, identity theft and business fraud can result in shocking penalties for all parties involved. Privacy legislation here in Syracuse and across the United States, have set regulations in place when it comes to the proper handling and disposal methods for sensitive documents, and consequences for non-compliance.

Each day Syracuse business owners give an employee to manage and shred internal business records because it seems like a viable and easy solution. While it may seem convenient, the majority of staff lack training when it comes to document shredding and the need to record exactly what has been shred. These are critical aspects to remember before you decide to continue with your in-house shredding routine. It’s simply not worth the time, hassle, and risk!
