In today’s digital business world, data is the new currency and cybercriminals are intent on stealing it electronically. But what many business professionals don’t realize is that there are much more vulnerable sources of information that many companies leave exposed, ripe for the picking – paper documents and computer storage disks and tapes.
Fortunately, there’s a simple, highly-efficient solution – file shredding for the communities of eastern Massachusetts and southern, New Hampshire. At Data Destruction Services, we offer highly-secure commercial file shredding services that
- Safely destroys sensitive paper documents as well as computer disks and tapes
- Requires no preparation—staples, clips, bindings, and covers can be shred along with paper
- Shredding is handled by trained and screened personnel
- Certificates of Destruction are issued certified complete document destruction
Destroying sensitive documents is not just a good idea – it might also be legally-required, too. There are state and federal laws such as HIPAA and FACTA that require organizations to protect personal information and that often means destroying it to be in compliance and avoid legal penalties and fines. At Data Destruction, we not only handle file shredding, we even provide a Certificate of Destruction certifying that we’ve safely destroyed and disposed of your sensitive documents. No need to bother with removing paper clips, staples, or binding – our heavy-duty shredders easily grind up the entire package.
Why continue storing all those old documents? Holding information beyond its required retention period or usefulness incurs unnecessary storage costs and leaves your business vulnerable to non-compliance problems and your customers vulnerable to risks of theft, misuse, disclosure, and legal discovery. File shredding keeps valuable research information, customer lists, pricing, marketing strategy information, training materials and other documents out of the wrong hands. And illegal theft isn’t always the problem. Curbside and dumpster trash is fair game for anyone to root through and take something of interest – including sensitive information contained in thrown-out documents, disks, and tapes.
