Making sure you're Secure

The risk of printed information falling into the wrong hands remains a constant threat, despite increased use of technology and computers to exchange information. Files may be shared electronically, but printed copies are still the norm and the information they contain is often easier to obtain than the originals saved on a computer. Through our secure shredding process, Shred-it empowers your organization big or small, to protect the confidential information of your customers, your suppliers, and your company. Protecting the security and privacy of your materials begins the moment they are deposited into your officeís Shred-it console. And the chain of custody remains unbroken until your documents are destroyed following our secure shredding process and your Certificate of Destruction is received. Shred-itís locked security consoles keep materials safe from curious janitors or waste management employees when youíre not around. At your convenience and based on a schedule arranged to suit your needs, a security-screened, insured Shred-it Customer Service Representative (CSR) unlocks the console and carries your materials to a secure shredding truck waiting outside. Depending on your preference, your documents can either be shredded on site or taken away and destroyed in the same secure manner at a later time. For whichever method you choose, a Certificate of Destruction is issued that confirms the secure shredding of your confidential materials. So trust Shred-itís secure shredding services to guard the privacy of your information and that of your customers and employees. It will make them feel secure. And that will make you feel secure too.

Document destruction compliance is now the law

Keeping customer and employee information secure is more than good business. It's the law. Legislation concerning privacy is becoming more rigorous and continues to be strictly enforced. Organizations that fail to comply will incur severe penalties. Privacy legislation includes the ultimate destruction of confidential information, and shredding is the preferred method of document destruction. Information contained in documents must be destroyed so that it cannot be recreated. Shred-it's document destruction services were developed specifically to deal with the privacy and confidentiality requirements of individuals and organizations. We make it our business to know the privacy legislation and document destruction requirements in all regions where we have a presence so that you can focus on your core business practices.

Competition and Workplace Privacy
Protect trade secrets. Keep your private information private

Every employee around the globe produces confidential material daily - in every business. That's a lot of private information. Add to that your customers information and you have a lot of confidential information at stake, including your own trade secrets. The last thing you want in today's marketplace is for your competitors to have access to sensitive information, like your latest client proposal or annual budget. Unfortunately, this happens every day in America. US corporations report annual losses of more than $45 billion from the theft of trade secrets. Many people think of trade secrets being stolen by hackers, or shared with the wrong parties through electronic channels. But we are still very much a paper society. We print out documents to proof or sign and then, not realizing their value to others, put them in the trash. Or, in an effort to be environmentally friendly, we put them in the recycling bin. And that leaves reports, memos and budgets out there for all to see. A document destruction program ensures that all your corporate information is completely destroyed. And it fulfills your desire to be environmentally friendly, since all shredded paper is recycled into consumer products. Shred-it's secure chain of custody ensures that your private materials, and your trade secrets, are protected, and our locked security consoles keep materials safe from inquiring eyes. When it comes to trade secrets, the fewer people handling your confidential documents, the better. And the people who do handle it should be screened, certified professionals who understand how to keep confidential information confidential.
