What is a Certificate of Destruction?

And Why You Need One for Every Shred

Shredding and destroying unneeded documents, hard drives and products is an essential part of your company’s security. It’s the top way to ensure that your corporate identity is safe from theft and to protect your customers, vendors and business associates. Every time you shred, your shredding company should provide a certificate of destruction. This document is important for several reasons, take a look:

The Certificate of Destruction Provides Pertinent Information

The Certificate of Destruction provides information about each shred—including the date, time, place and person who performed the shred. It also details how the materials were handled throughout the process and shows that the destruction was performed in compliance with state and federal regulations.

The Certificate of Destruction Protects Your Company from Legal Disputes

Keeping your certificates of destruction after each shred helps protect your company if any legal disputes arise regarding your handling of personal information. Whether there is a breach or not, it is not unheard of for businesses to be accused of mishandling or releasing confidential information. Having certificates of destruction for every shred establishes your due diligence in safeguarding sensitive information.

The Certificate of Destruction Gives You Peace of Mind

Every time you shred or destroy unneeded documents, hard drives, devices or products, you are doing what’s necessary to protect your company from data breaches, ID theft and fraud. The Certificate of Destruction gives you the peace of mind that all of these items have been permanently destroyed.
