A box of files and stack of files behind a pile of shredded paperYear after year we hear about data breaches, security leaks and ID theft that costs businesses large sums of money and damages their reputation. How to destroy documents safely and securely is a top concern for business owners and many wonder if the option of hiring a professional shredding and destruction company is the most secure choice. If you’re searching for the ideal solution to protect your business from corporate ID theft and breaches, here’s a look at why professional shredding services are the top option:

Partner with a professional to destroy unwanted/unneeded and expired documents

Whether you own a small or large company, it’s likely that you generate a large amount of documents and paperwork that needs to be securely destroyed. Many business owners underestimate their needs when it comes to shredding and are unsure of which documents can be considered risky when it comes to ID theft. As a rule, any documents that contain personally identifiable information or confidential information should be shredded including:

  • Junk mail
  • Credit card statements
  • Bank statements
  • Insurance paperwork
  • Documents with company name and address
  • Documents with contact information of clients/vendors
  • Tax documents
  • Paperwork with social security numbers and/or birthdates

Shredding providers are the most secure option

Although many organizations have retail shredders that they use to shred sensitive documents, the problem is these machines can not shred as securely as the ones that professional shredding companies use and are unable to handle the volume of documents. Professional shredding providers use mobile shredding trucks that are equipped with the industry’s most powerful and secure machinery that permanently destroy documents so they can not be reassembled and breached. Reputable shredding companies also:

  • Perform shredding onsite at your office so you can witness the entire process
  • Are able to shred large amounts of documents quickly and efficiently
  • Provide secure, locking containers to store documents that need to be shredded
  • Provide a certificate of destruction with every shred

Every business generates paperwork that at some point will need to be shredded to ensure security and protection against corporate ID theft. Partnering with a professional shredding company is the ideal way to keep your company safe and to ultimately protect your bottom line.
