Hiring a professional paper shredding service is a solution to the problem. You wonít have to stay late and shred documents yourself in the middle of the night and you wonít have to put your employees in a position where they can compromise your security. You are required by law to shred certain documents and you are legally responsible if the information from those documents gets out and harms the parties it pertains to.
A mobile shredding service is one step better than a stationary service that you have to bring your documents and paperwork to for destruction. By picking up the paperwork slated for shredding, the mobile shredding company eliminates the possibility of those documents being stolen, lost or viewed in transit. This method also cuts down on the number of hands that touch your paperwork and the number of eyes that see it. The last person to actually touch your documents will be the person who works for you who originated or reviewed it. Our people just empty the containers into the shredder.
How much potentially damaging information is contained in the documents that you view every single day? Your human resources department might go through a thousand job applications in the course of a year. Each of them has someoneís social security number, name, address, telephone number, even next of kin information. There is enough data on each of them to apply for credit cards, get new identification, or hack into a personal bank account. To spend someone elseís money, all you need is the tracking and routing numbers from their checking account. Document shredding eliminates the possibility of anyone getting that information from you.
