The National Association of Information Destruction provides guidelines about the legal and permanent destruction of paper documents and other types of media; this helps companies select the best shredding service that is qualified to handle the shredding of confidential material and data. Embassy RMS is proud to offer NAID certified mobile shredding services at your location. We closely follow the strict guidelines of NAID to ensure your privacy as well as the privacy of your customers, employees, and vendors.
We shred by following the State and Federal laws on document and media destruction, as documented by the following regulations and guidelines:
Guidelines for Consumer Privacy – FTC Guidelines on Identity Theft & Privacy Protection
Guidelines for Consumer Records – Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA)
Guidelines for Financial Records – Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
Guidelines for Medical Records – Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
It is important for companies to note that disposing of documents containing sensitive information via normal trash handling makes it vulnerable to viewing by authorized personnel and is against the law. A company disposing of records in this fashion could face criminal charges, prosecution, and fines due to this breach of confidentiality. Beyond that, businesses lose the credibility and trust of their clients and customers.
