Record Destruction of Business Documents

Understanding the Benefits and Requirements of Business Office Record Destruction

Once the life-cycle of your business documents are over, the documents have to be properly and securely destroyed. When you carry out Record Destruction, you have to be confident, compliant and prudent so that no sensitive information is abused, stolen or exposed. Every organization needs to have a business record management policy and this policy will be incomplete without a safe document destruction and hard drive destruction solution.

Why Do You Need To Shred Old Documents?

Shredding old business documents becomes important especially if you are running a business and you are flooded with papers containing confidential information of your customers, employees, competition and so much more. So, when you need to get rid of these documents, just dumping it in your recycle bin is not the right way because by doing so, you are putting yourself at a lot of risk of legal exposure. Such papers need to be thoroughly shredded before you dispose of them to ensure that no information whatsoever can be recovered.

Benefits of Professionally Record Destruction of Office Documents

The following are some benefits of the professional destruction of business documents:

Protection Against Identity Theft

Most importantly by getting rid of business and personal documentation, you are protecting yourself against identity theft and fraud. Documents bearing classified information, contracts, bank statements, and customer data among many other things can all pose a potential legal issue if not handled right when throwing them away.

Reduction In Overall Waste

Just like cardboard and paper recycling, the residual products that are left behind once you shred the documents can also be retained and reprocessed for making other products and materials. By using a professional service, you ensure that you are doing your part to protect the environment.

Additional Legal Protection

There is added legal protection for business owners who manage their outdated documents in a professional manner. Your customers will be more confident when they find out that your organization destroys their documents by assigning the job to a highly-reputable service provider which delivers an extra layer of confidence as they believe that their confidential information will be handled discreetly and properly.

Minimizing The Production Of New Products

In addition, your removed paper products will find extra usage and will remain out of landfills and you will also help in minimizing the overall number of trees that needs to be cut to sustain the stationary and paper needs of the future.

So, before you throw your valuable money into another office shredder, call ShredGreen, Inc. and reduce the risk involved in the record destruction of sensitive documents.
