Most successful businesses already have a solid records management policy in place for paper shredding or hard drive shredding. One factor a lot of companies do not take into consideration is dumpster divers. Lots of people dumpster dive for many reasons. Usually, they are trying to find something to sell to make a quick buck. You may be in trouble if you do not have the proper paper shredding service with locking paper shredding containers in place in your office. Employees can occasionally throw confidential shredding documents into a regular trash can which, in turn, ends up in the dumpster instead of being shredded like desired. Confidential shredding is key to avoid a breach of information. Tossing confidential documents in the trash can lead to confidential data in the hands of the wrong person. Dumpster divers may come across documents that should have been shredded that may have sensitive confidential records and information in them.
Regular staff meetings associated with data breach security protocols should be in place. Let your staff know that confidential document shredding companies exist for a reason. Like Embassy Records Management and storage, we keep secure locking shredding containers for shred service on site. An AAA NAID certified paper shredding service is the most reliable means of document disposal.
Never underestimate what thieves will do if they happen to come across confidential documents. Better safe than sorry.
Refrain from placing anything in the trash that contains social security numbers, medical records, bank account numbers, driver’s license numbers etc. Always shred credit and debit cards as well. Never throw away any digital forms of media either. Use a professional hard drive shredding company or media shredding company like Embassy Records Management and Storage. Hard drive shredding is a key proponent to managing data breach risks.
