Are You Witnessing Your Document Shredding?
How Your Business Will Benefit If You Do
Depending on what business you’re in, it’s highly likely that you are required to be in compliance with local, state and federal mandates as well as privacy laws. And, if this is the case, you should consider partnering with a shredding company that performs every shred onsite, so you’re able to witness the process. This process gives you the peace of mind that your confidential documents have been permanently destroyed, and eliminates the need for you to transport documents from one location to the next.
Industries That Should Be Using Onsite Mobile Shredding
Every industry should be shredding documents that are outdated or no longer needed. This is the most secure way to ensure that sensitive company information and personal data on clients, vendors and staff is protected. Take a look:
If you’re a healthcare provider, a clinic, diagnostic center or in any kind of related healthcare business, you are responsible for abiding by HIPAA laws and other regulations that protect private patient health information. The law not only lays out how you can obtain health information, but also how you store it and when and how you dispose of it. Mistakes or simply not following HIPAA regulations can lead to violations and hefty fines.
Law Firms and Related Legal Services
As a legal representative it’s your duty to protect the information of your clients–which is mandated by the FACTA (Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act) and the Privacy Act of 1974. These acts include guidelines of collecting information, managing and storing it, as well as disposal. It’s crucial for your business to ensure that you are following all regulations.
Schools, Universities & Other Educational Institutions
Schools of all kinds collect personal and confidential information from their students. This data is protected by several laws and therefore must be managed and disposed of according to guidelines.
Protecting your clients’ personal information is crucial to ensure they do not become victims of fraud, which can lead to financial losses and ID theft. There are laws in place that all financial companies must follow to remain in compliance–including the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which has specific requirements in regards to how you can collect, store and dispose of information.
All companies today are faced with the growing concerns of ID theft, fraud and data breaches. To protect your company and your clients and staff, follow the appropriate guidelines for document disposal and ensure that you are witnessing every shred.
