Reasons for document shredding
Shredding services are not just for large corporations, lawyers, doctors, and accountants dealing with confidential information and sensitive data. All kinds of people request document shredding services for all kinds of reasons, including those listed below.
Protection against identity theft
Identity theft -- when a person uses someone's personal information, like their name, social security number, credit card number, banking information to commit fraud or other crimes. Sadly stealing someone's identity is rampant today. There are way too many cases of identity theft that devastate a person's financial security and can take years to untangle and remedy, often at considerable expense to the victim.
Legal compliance and regulations
Everyone has a right to expect their personal information is protected. Certain national and state laws penalize firms and professionals for improper disposal of documents with confidential content. Businesses and groups that hold personal data and personally identifiable information but neglect to protect it can face legal and financial consequences.
Avoiding security breaches
We are bombarded with news and warnings of online security breaches; in fact every time we have to type in our user name and password reminds us of the need to protect our information. However, think of all the paper records in your office or home that you do not want to end up in the wrong hands. The danger of a breach in privacy is another reason people shred documents.
Reducing exposure to security risks
Proper and accurate document destruction reduces the consequences of someone using another person's information or a company's proprietary information for crimes. The consequences of a security breach are serious. Proper information destruction and paper destruction protects you against time-consuming and damaging actions, including the following:
- Audits, fines, investigations, and sanctions
- Loss of clients' and professionals' trust
- Almost irrevocable damage to your company's or organization's reputation
Reducing fire risks and clutter
You may not think of this, but a room of file boxes with out-of-date information can be expensive real estate, in both residential and business settings. The clutter of excess papers can also be a fire hazard. Offices continually need to get rid of outdated papers as part of an organization-wide records management system. For example, employers use paper shredding services to get rid of employee files no longer in use. The document shredding process is a quick way to streamline your space.
Paper documents that are often shredded
So much of the data we need is securely protected and stored at little cost online. For some offices, this online data storage means less paper shredding and fewer shred bins. Every family and small business is different and will have different needs, but many people are ready to securely dispose of documents that duplicate what is online. Pay attention to whether you need to keep documents and other media in categories like the following:
- Account records
- Bank statements, including retirement account statements
- Bills, including credit card bills
- Business files/records
- Contracts that are obsolete
- Correspondence that has already been handled
- Financial statements with social security numbers
- Health insurance forms
- Inventory records
- Medical records
- Payroll records and personnel files
- Purchase receipts
- Sales forecasts
- Written emails and memos
At small businesses, sensitive information in documents like these should go in the office shred bin, (which should be locked by secure means) and securely destroyed.
