Simple Recycling Is Not Protection Enough For Sensitive Documents
DE PERE, Wisconsin – Organizations are paying greater attention to the manner in which they dispose of proprietary data and federally protected personal information in an age of grand-scale security breaches.
A growing number of businesses are relying on certified secure shredding providers such as Automated Records Management Systems, Inc., an industry leader in secure shredding services in the Green Bay, Wisconsin, area.
“Common recycling practices are no guarantee that sensitive information has been properly destroyed,” said Eric Haas, president and CEO of ARMS. “Placing shredded paper in the recycling bin makes it easy for anyone to access.”
Information sources such as corporate financial and payroll records are obvious choices for secure shredding, but even junk mail can contain information that puts individuals and organizations at risk.
State and federal laws, including HIPAA and FACTA, require that organizations follow secure paper shredding policies to prevent identity theft.
In addition to “AAA” NAID Certified secure shredding services, ARMS provides off-site storage, data protection and records management services for companies throughout Northeastern Wisconsin and across the United States.
