> Why Shred?
Shredding your company's sensitive data is more than simply a good business practice - it’s the law. Annually identity theft affects more than 10 million Americans and costs US companies $7 billion. Businesses today are held liable when confidential employee or customer information is not safeguarded.
Sensitive information, in the wrong hands, can become a serious liability. Whether your company is large or small, you have information that must be kept private. Customer lists, drafts of bids and letters, even memos, contain information about your business activity that would interest any competitor. Your business is also entrusted with private information about employees and customers which you are legally required to protect. In 1974 the Federal government enacted the Federal Privacy Act to protect the privacy of individuals and businesses. All government agencies as well as the private sector can be held liable if any personal information is released to unauthorized individuals.
In addition, there are growing public concerns about privacy and identity theft. Because identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America the government has created state and federal mandates to regulate information security. For example, Federal regulations regarding patient privacy (HIPAA), impose fines up to $25,000 per occurrence for knowingly compromising personal health information.
If your organization is privy to private information and that information becomes public, it could be argued in a court of law that you had a responsibility to protect it, and are, therefore, liable for any damages. To protect your organization against the risk of liability it is smart business practice to routinely shred stored records as soon as their retention period is up, and to routinely shred daily documents as soon as they have outlived their usefulness.
More Reasons to Shred:
1. Your Duty to Secure the Privacy of Others:
IDENTITY THEFT and information based fraud is the fastest growing crime in America! 1 out of every 5 people is a victim of identity theft. Victims spend an average of 200 hours over a 3-year period and spend over one thousand dollars of out-of-pocket expenses to recover from the effects of having their identity stolen.
• Protect your customers. — At the very least, you have an “implied contract” to protect their information, simply based on the fact that you are collecting their data to conduct business. They have a legal contractual right to expect you to take every precaution to protect it, which can only be accomplished by shredding the data before it is discarded. — Privacy laws require you to keep your customers’ personal information private. Their confidential information can neither be disclosed to the public, nor to unauthorized personnel in your own office.
• Protect your employees (current and former) — They have a legal right to have their personal information secured by shredding their data before it is discarded.
2. Your Company’s Information Security:
What would it cost your company, your customers and your employees if sensitive information were to fall into the wrong hands?
• Corporate Espionage
An estimated 7 billion dollars was lost last year alone to corporate espionage.
— Dumpster Diving is legal - The U.S. Supreme court has ruled that information thrown
in your trash is fair game to anyone.
It’s estimated that 70% of all espionage involves dumpster diving.
— The FBI estimates the theft of proprietary information costs U.S. corporations $42 billion annually.
Make sure your business STAYS your business.
• Former and Current Employees
Employees are the most likely to realize the value of discarded company information. It is important to safeguard your company’s proprietary information, not only from competitors, but also from unauthorized personnel within your own organization.
• Trade Information Rights
If you don’t protect your trade information, the courts won’t either.
• Attractive Locked Security Containers (consoles and/or bins) provided to you FREE of charge to be placed strategically in your facility, in locations convenient for your staff to use to dispose of confidential materials.
