Why Do You Need To Shred?
To Protect Your Clients From Identity Theft, Fraud and Loss of Privacy
Tens of thousands of individuals report identity theft and identity fraud crimes each year. Experts say only a fraction of these crimes are actually reported. Shredding is an excellent form of identity fraud protection. When the cost of professional shredding is compared against the cost of not shredding (litigation, lost earnings, reputation damage), the math will always lead back to third-party, professional shredding.
Laws and Regulations Mandate Shredding
In addition to the cost of rebuilding credit and reputation related to identity theft, the legal exposure of your organization must be considered. National and local jurisdictions mandate that all businesses, healthcare facilities and financial institutions protect the confidential information of their clientele. We strongly recommend all organizations learn more about their local laws and how The Shred Truck™ can help protect you.
For example, many federal, state and provincial regulations require organizations to appoint an individual(s) to be responsible for privacy compliance, including, but not limited to, protecting all personal information held by your organization and developing and implementing personal information policies and procedures.
In addition to the above, you must safeguard this personal information against loss or theft, from unauthorized use, disclosure, etc., regardless of its format.
