Whether you run a business or a household, it’s always important to protect sensitive and confidential information from falling into the wrong hands. Every day, as an individual, you are at risk of identity theft; if you don’t properly destroy documents and data with containing sensitive information then you are increasing that risk. Businesses are at risk everyday too; at risk of security breaches that will lead to an incredible loss of money and possible legal action against them.
Here are 3 reasons to start using a mobile shredding service to help protect yourself or your business:
Protection Against Fraud. This is a BIG ONE. Fraud is on the rise and it’s a global problem. Hackers can recover sensitive information – from old hard drives, computers, cell phones, disks, etc. – even if they have been cleaned or erased.
Many people think data destruction is as simple as deleting files and emptying the recycle bin. In reality, when computer files are deleted, the operating system only deletes the links to the data, leaving the actual data still on your hard drive.
Documentation and paperwork that is kept around the home or office can also be stolen or found in the trash and used to steal an identity. It’s just as important to shred documents as it is to shred hard drives.
Secure document and data destruction is crucial for regulatory compliance with all major Federal, State and industry regulations. Data destruction is the only 100% secure method to absolutely ensure that your data is not accessible by anyone.
Environmental Benefits. Mobile document and data destruction services help you dispose of confidential information in an environmentally responsible manner. All of your documents and data will be will be destroyed and recycled back into the world.
It’s Convenient. This one is a no-brainer. You can schedule a service to come regularly, say once every month or so, or you can schedule a one-time on-site purge. Either way the mobile shredding service comes to you, they handle everything on-site and then they give you a certificate of destruction on their way out. You don’t even have to leave your desk.
