Home offices and businesses generate tons of data every day. Some of this data may be related to in house operations or customer related data. A question often asked is how do we manage that data? Some may be stored in file boxes or on an in-house server or hard drive. Regardless of how it is stored, it must me confidentially destroyed when it reaches its retention date for compliance purposes.
Different data types may require different data retention schedules. For example, tax documents are only required to be kept for a certain time period while human resource documents or electronic files must be retained for longer periods. Medical records for adults are kept for a shorter period than pediatric charts or e-files.
At Embassy we recommend a data management plan be instituted for all businesses and even for your personal home data. Storing paper or electronic data can become a liability if kept longer than required by law. Most states vary in their retention recommendations so check your state associations for their recommendations. Check the IRS website for any tax related retention dates. Your data destruction plan should have a trusted local shredding service in place to assist with paper shredding and hard drive shredding.
We provide data management consulting for fortune 500 companies as well as home office businesses.
