What Every Business Should Know
Securing Sensitive Information Theft, vandalism, and industrial espionage are becoming ever-increasing security problems. We’ve all heard the horror stories resulting from confidential information getting into the wrong hands. Today’s information explosion can be devastating to your business. With the increased use of office copiers and computers, staggering amounts of sensitive information is being generated and carelessly discarded.
Legal Time Limits
Outdated or inactive company files can also become damaging once they have reached their legal limit of retention. Shredding this information protects you and your company against potential lawsuits.
Public Domain Trash
The Supreme Court has ruled that information in your trash is “fair game” to anyone. Privacy laws make you vulnerable to law suits when personal records are disclosed to outsiders – even by accident!
The 1974 Federal Privacy Act was established to ensure that government agencies protect the privacy of individuals and businesses with regard to information held by them and to hold these agencies liable if any information is released without authorization.
