What are Secure Shredding Bins?
How can they protect my business?
Any business, no matter what the industry, can become a victim of a security breach. That’s why all businesses need a plan and a process for the disposal of confidential files, documents and materials. No matter the volume of paperwork, each and every document that contains information like account numbers, client’s personal information, financial records, personnel information and any other sensitive data, needs to be managed and destroyed properly. Shredding bins, provided by a shredding and destruction company, are one way to keep your documents and files safe until they can be securely and permanently destroyed. Take a look:
What’s a secure shredding bin and how do I get one?
Shredding bins are secure, locked containers that have a small slot where papers can be fed into. Your shredding and destruction provider will give you bins to place in your organization and depending on how much paperwork you generate; you may have several bins placed throughout your office. Because the slot is just big enough for paper and the container is locked, paper deposited into it cannot be accessed by anyone. The bins securely collect all unneeded, outdated and obsolete documents that will be shredded.
Bins are emptied on your regular shred days
When you partner with a shredding provider, you’ll have the opportunity to set up a shredding schedule that works best for your company. On your scheduled shred days, mobile shredding trucks will come to your office and bins will be emptied. The contents will be securely shredded on-site and the bins will be returned to their locations in your building. You’ll receive a certificate of destruction after each shred, giving you further peace of mind that you have done your due diligence to protect your company against breaches, data theft and ID theft.
Depending on the amount of documents that your organization generates, you can work with your provider to create a schedule that is tailored to your needs. The most important facet to preventing a security issue is to be consistent and to ensure that documents are safely stored in the locked bins until they are shredded.
