Why Shred? It’s the Law!

When asked why a company or home should shred documents rather than simply throw away or recycle their documents - we will tell you that that is "risky business" because there are severe civil penalties in many industries for failing to dispose of information correctly. We like to think of ourselves as a security firm as well. This is why:
 Federal Mandate: HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act) is a federally mandated law which requires health care providers to destroy patient health information in order to protect their privacy and security. FACTA (Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act) requires any disposed document which contains consumer and credit information to be shredded as well. Stiff penalties for failure to dispose of this kind of information correctly and liability in court are both possible consequences of failing to shred your documents.

State Law: California law states that any business that deals with personal information must take all reasonable steps to destroy customer's records that are no longer of value by shredding, erasing or otherwise modifying the records so they are no longer readable. The law allows for severe civil penalties if someone is harmed by improper disposal of their personal records.

Identity Theft and Information-Based Fraud: These are the fastest growing crimes in the United States. Considering that the United States Supreme Court has ruled that you give up ownership of information when it is casually discarded - document destruction becomes an important part of your company's security program.

Employee Confidentiality: This means that your employees have the right to have their personal information protected. Their insurance paperwork, time cards, accident reports and attendance records should always be destroyed when they are disposed of.

Corporate Ethics: In this day and age, consumers and shareholders show high loyalty to businesses that show high ethical standards.

Protect Trade Secrets: Courts have ruled many times that they will not recognize information as a trade secret if it is casually discarded. This kind of information might include sales reports, proposals and leads; as well as, database lists, accounting, insurance, market and shipping and scheduling information.
