Regular Shredding Schedules
Why Consistency Matters
The importance of protecting your ID, whether as an individual or for your business, is as important and pressing as it ever was. ID theft continues to grow in the United States and around the globe. Shredding documents and devices that contain personal and confidential information is the top way to protect yourself and your livelihood. But staying consistent is also key–if you look around your home or office and see stacks of papers or file cabinets full of documents that are awaiting shredding, it’s time to begin a regular shredding schedule. Here’s why:
Excess Poses A Risk
Without a regular shredding schedule, piles of paperwork and files begin to stack up. When this happens, you are putting your personal information at risk for theft, especially if you have a build up and they are not stored securely. Confidential documents contain information like bank account numbers and credit card information, medical records, etc. and this is exactly the kind of data that thieves are looking for.
Clutter Causes Disorder
It’s difficult to stay organized when you have a build-up of paperwork lying around your home or office. Clutter is not only a risk for fire and theft, but also can lead to throwing the wrong papers in the regular trash or recycling bin. Dumpster diving is a real threat and is one way that ID thieves can gain access to your private information.
Regular Shredding Can Be More Cost Effective
Whether for your personal documents or for your company’s, implementing a regular shredding schedule can save you money. When you are on a schedule, you tend to keep your volume of documents lower, which in turn saves you money.
Consistent Shredding is More Convenient
Working with a shredding company that will come to your home or office on a regular basis is convenient and easy. It eliminates the need for you to haul large amounts of paper to a second location, which can increase your risk of theft. Mobile shredding on a regular basis is a top way to keep your information safe.
