In today’s world, there are many reasons why your business should consider a document destruction program:
If your customers entrust you with their personal and secure information, you have a duty to protect that information and they have the legal right to expect you to take every precaution in the handling of their private information. You are also at risk of fines ranging from $2,500 to $1.5 million for the mishandling of secure information.
Your Public Image
Dumpster diving is still the number one way for investigative journalists to find information about your company. Shredding confidential business documents is essential for protecting your business and preventing any potentially damaging information from falling into the wrong hands or from any outsider trading under your name. In short, document destruction helps businesses stay out of the news for all the wrong reasons.
Employees have a legal right to privacy and expect their employer to keep their personal information safe.
