It is important for all businesses that collect personal and private information to have methods in place that offer secure document destruction. Hiring a professional mobile shredding service like ours to completely ensure that your data destruction actually does destroy your information allows you to see the work being done right before your eyes and know that your business’s most private information is being handled in the most secure manner possible. Even if you feel like there’s nothing in your business worth stealing, or that your company isn’t at risk for paperwork or information theft like others might be, you’d be surprised at what we’ve seen and the lengths that people will go to in order to get a hold of your information. Trying to take tasks like shredding into your own hands, or becoming careless about the data destruction process, is extremely risky – but it’s also an easy pattern to fall into. As a business owner, you have so much going on at any given time that it can be easy for something like proper data destruction to slip right by you. That said, incomplete destruction of data or a breach of privacy can result in a negative impact on your business’s reputation as well as a loss of consumer trust; all of this is why it’s much better to get professionals like us to do it for you.
There is a growing need in business today for awareness of information handling and individual privacy issues. As even small businesses enter the global economy, the scope of privacy issues and possible risks to security increase exponentially. As a responsible business owner or manager you should first educate yourself as to your obligations for protecting different types of information, then you should learn about the options available to you for effective data destruction at regular intervals. Identity theft is becoming an all-too-common occurrence in this digital age, and it is devastating to all of its victims, who can spend months or years trying to piece their lives back together. Confidential records, employee personal information, medical histories, legal documents, credit card information and many other types of data all need to be handled with care and destroyed at the appropriate times. At Absolute Destruction, we can help you identify how to best handle your data and map out a simple and effective document destruction plan of action – all while ensuring that our services don’t interrupt your own business. We can arrive and leave whenever you like, fitting our services into your schedule and discreetly performing our document and data destruction without stopping the flow of your business.
Electronic data is just as easy for identity thieves to find and abuse. Just because you delete something does not mean the record of it cannot be recovered again. Absolute Destruction also offers on-site hard drive destruction as well as that of other electronic devices. We participate in various recycling programs for both paper and electronic waste and can help you learn how to use data shredding to support your company’s green initiatives.
