Even junk mail contains information worthy of shredding
It is a myth that businesses only need concern themselves with shredding certain documents. A wide range of documents contain sensitive information that would be better off securely destroyed than simply recycled.
In addition to state and federal laws such as HIPAA and FACTA that require proper destruction of information, it just makes good business sense to shred documents and prevent identity theft. Financial, account and payroll records are obvious choices, while blueprints, junk mail and magnetic media also are appropriate candidates for shredding.
Using a certified third-party firm to shred documents takes employees out of the loop and minimizes the chances of compromising confidential business information. ARMS (Automated Records Management Systems) provides third-party shredding services in Green Bay for businesses of all sizes.
