Keeping client information secure is essential for the success of your business. Security is one of the top reasons it is important for your business to have a shredding system in place. This ensures that confidential information is destroyed appropriately and in a timely manner. Here are just a few more reasons having a shredding plan in place will benefit your business.
It's the Law
Confidential records such as medical records, employee salary records, and personal address details are required by the Data Protection Act to be disposed of in a manner that will keep people's information safe. These records should be shredded before disposal in order to keep them safe.
Identity theft is becoming a common crime among criminals. Criminals are digging through trash looking for information such as social security numbers and addresses in order to steal a person's identity. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, 158 million social security numbers were exposed in 2017.
