Shredding for All Business, Big or Small

Today, businesses of all sizes are affected by privacy legislation and must take reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to confidential information. With the increasing prevalence of data breaches and identity theft, the importance of securing sensitive data cannot be overstated. Regulatory frameworks such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) impose strict requirements on organizations regarding the handling and disposal of personal and sensitive information.

Failure to comply with these regulations can result in severe consequences, including hefty fines, legal liabilities, and reputational damage. As such, businesses are under immense pressure to implement robust data protection measures throughout their operations. Onsite locked storage containers play a crucial role in this regard, serving as a frontline defense against data breaches and unauthorized access.

By securely storing confidential documents within locked containers on-site, businesses can effectively control access to sensitive information and mitigate the risk of breaches. These containers are designed to withstand tampering and unauthorized entry, providing a secure repository for documents awaiting shredding. Moreover, their presence within the premises ensures that sensitive data remains under the direct supervision of the organization, minimizing the likelihood of data exposure during transit or storage at off-site facilities.

Medical Record Shredding & Destruction

Most health care and medical professionals understand that it is vital to properly destroy medical records in order to protect the privacy of patients. Doctors and healthcare practitioners are entrusted with an individual’s most sensitive and confidential information, which must be handled with care and professionalism. Thus when medical records are being discarded, it is vital that the record destruction process also be managed with utmost care and professionalism.

Financial Record Shredding

Financial companies have in their care some of the most valuable information about a variety of individuals and organizations. At the same time, your organization probably prints and discards hundreds of pages per month of your own financial information that you want to protect. It is therefore crucially important that these financial records are securely destroyed when it is time to discard them.

When your legal records and documents need to be discarded, call Affordable Shredding to help you.

Home Office Shredding Services

With more and more corporate staff traveling, keeping flex hours and working from home, private documents are increasingly likely to leave the office, putting organizations at higher risk of confidentiality breaches.
