The Lifecycle of a Document Enhances Security Risks. Document Shredding is the Solution.

Strict privacy laws and an increase in identity theft cases make document shredding an important component to running a reliable and trustworthy business.  Ensuring the privacy of confidential business documents is of paramount importance to your clients.  Of equal importance is your compliance in practicing good records management on their behalf.

Document shredding is a very easy and secure process when compared to the damage done once your client’s information, or your own, ends up in the hands of criminals trying to commit identify theft.  It only takes one piece of confidential information for a thief to learn much more about your company and to greatly affect your livelihood.

It is important to understand the life-cycle of a document to realize how significant paper shredding is to your client’s security and your own.  For example, after a document is created, it is stored, retrieved, modified, shared and distributed—these actions happen over and over.  Throughout the life of a single document this repeated cycle makes them prone to identity theft or landing in the hands of an unauthorized user.  This is why it is important to consider digital document management options and secure shredding.
