We're going to take a look at why you should trust a third party customer to shred your confidential documents instead of keeping it in house.
We say this a lot around here: ultimately you should know the value of your time. What this means is that if you are having an employee sit at the shredder for hours a week to shred individual papers, you are not optimizing their value or the money that you are paying them. By outsourcing your shredding, those employees can be more productive towards the goals of their position!
When you shred documents in the office or recycle them or throw them away, you are putting your business at risk of information and document theft. Whether your business handles important patient records or product prototype descriptions, you don't want that information to get into the wrong hands. To reduce the risk of information breach, trust Embassy to destroy your documents so that no one can get to that info! We are NAID certified so that we are held to the highest security standards.
Most businesses have a higher power such as a board or certification institution that sets guidelines for how information is kept and disposed of. Some examples of these are HIPAA, FACTA, SOX, and GLB. At Embassy, we keep ourselves consistently up to date with any changing regulations so that we keep our customers within the guidelines of their regulations.
Here at Embassy, all of our destruction services come with a Certificate of Destruction. This certificate states that your materials were destroyed in compliance with the regulations that your company follows. With a small office shredder, there is no proof that your documents were destroyed!
All paper that is shredded at Embassy RMS is recycled into new paper. Utilizing our service and complementary recycling of that shredded paper is a great way to keep your business environmentally friendly and a great step towards going green at the office!
