When it comes time to shred the documents in your business, there may be some things you do not know. While many companies are using personal shredders to dispose of confidential information, there are actually laws and regulations that must be obeyed for certain types of industries. Let’s take a look at why you should hire a professional document shredding company to dispose of your documents.
Regardless of the size of your company, if you work in key industries, it may be against the law for you to shred sensitive information on a company shredder. These key privacy legislations like HIPAA and FACTA prohibit the use of a personal or company shredder from disposing of sensitive information. Old documents that contain personal information must be disposed of in a secure location. Not following these regulations could result in legal action against your company if sensitive information is leaked.
When your document shredding needs are outsourced, there will not be any need for your employees to take time out of their busy day to do the shredding. In-house shredding means you will either be taking your employees away from their regular work or paying them overtime in order to satisfy the needs of your company. Instead of wasting time and money, hire a professional document shredding company like Micro Records.
Have you ever tried to remove staples, paper clips, and other materials from a document? Going through a stack of documents can be tedious but is necessary for your document to be shredded. Except when they are shredded by a professional company. A professional document shredding company has access to heavy duty shredders that can take shredding tiny bits of metal. Many document shredding companies will also set up locked bins around your offices to collect the shredding to be done. The longer sensitive information sits around your office, the more damage it could cause if someone takes it. But with a locked bin, the information is safe inside and away from prying eyes. Once your bin is full, it is collected and your documents are destroyed quickly and effectively.
Micro Records allows you to know that your sensitive documents are kept away from prying eyes and you are following the rules and regulations of the privacy legislation. For more information on having your documents securely shredded by a professional company, call Micro Records today.
