How Scheduled Shredding Can Keep Your Business Compliant
What is Scheduled Shredding?
When you partner with a professional shredding company for scheduled mobile shredding, they will come to your business facility to collect your securely-discarded documents on a regular basis, whether it be monthly, bi-monthly, or weekly.
Benefits of Scheduled Shredding
Legal compliance and protecting your staff and clients are the priorities when handling information. If a company ignores or is sloppy with compliance, no amount of revenue or excellent service will protect you from the risk of lawsuits, fines, or a damaged reputation should your organization be the source of a data breach.
Shredding your documents will always be the best way to ensure that the information on them can’t be misplaced, or misused, and scheduled shredding can help keep your company legally compliant and your clients and employees’ information protected in several ways:
Frequent Document Destruction
Scheduling your documents to be shredded on a regular basis means you don’t have to remember to schedule shredding service. You have enough to keep you busy, and remembering to call the shredding company to come and empty the shred container when it is full doesn’t need to be on that list.
Secure Shred Collection Containers
With scheduled shredding, one or more locked shred collection containers will be positioned in the most convenient locations in your office for your employees drop discarded documents into. Then all the discarded documents are shredded on-site before they become a data breach risk.
Your shredding company should be able to help you determine the right shredding frequency and size and number of containers to match your needs.
Proof of Compliance with Data Privacy Laws
Should your organization be the subject of an audit or legal proceeding, regularly-scheduled shredding, along with the Certificates of Destruction you receive when shredding takes place, will provide proof that your company is complying with the law.
