Identity theft is a crime we all hear about on a regular basis at this point; whether we’ve been a victim of it ourselves or know someone who has, there’s no denying that it is an ever-growing concern in the news, worldwide.
Unfortunately, information theft doesn’t discriminate and will target both companies and individuals who don’t have the necessary protective measures in place to prevent it. Often this crime takes place with little to no warning which makes it even more challenging to deal with. While you may not feel threatened if you’ve never experienced it, statistics reveal you should take it seriously and ensure you’re protected. Why? Shockingly, studies reveal that data theft accounted for almost 92% of all security breaches that occurred in 2016 and this number is only on the rise.
Information theft takes on many forms; while today much of it occurs online, credit card statements and account numbers are like gold mines for thieves, so if you don’t make a conscious decision to secure these private files, they could very well end up in a recycling or garbage bin (the first place dumpster divers check for juicy information they can get their hands on). You can stop this risk however, by hiring a professional document shredding company, who will shred your confidential documents beyond any chance of recovery.
A document shredding company like Gator Shredding will speak to you about the status of your current disposal habits, reviewing where you may have challenges and how much paper you dispose of on an ongoing routine. Based on these findings, a collection program can be designed for you that will meet your unique needs and budget. At Gator Shredding, we will securely shred your paper and electronic media (such as CDs, hard drives, and SD cards) into tiny, indecipherable pieces, which are later responsibly recycled, all of which keep your security protected and reduces your carbon footprint.
If you own a business in Caldwell, you probably obtain, store and/or share confidential information about your staff and customers all the time. Legally speaking, you have a responsibility to guarantee this information remains protected and inaccessible to those unauthorized to view it. Gator Shredding is fully compliant with HIPAA, FACTA, GLBA, IRS, and FERPA; all critical privacy laws that outline exactly what processes should be implemented and followed to keep information safe. Ignoring this legislation might put your business in a situation where you could be prone to legal consequences. If it is discovered you have leaked information by acting negligent and that led to theft or information exposure, you will be held responsible and possibly fined. When you work with Gator Shredding, you don’t have to worry about this possibility. We look after secure destruction for you, so you don’t even have to think about it. After the shredding is finalized, we will present you with a Certificate of Destruction; this clearly outlines shredding has been performed in accordance with regulatory standards.
Tailored Shredding that is Cost-Effective and Convenient
We work with every business individually with the goal of determining how our solutions can benefit the unique needs of each client, customizing services accordingly. Our clients can choose from several shredding services based on needs and budget. Clients can select from one-time shredding for an office purge or our regularly scheduled shredding option for organizations that collect documents rapidly. The best part? You aren’t required to remove any staples or rubber bands; our trucks are designed to shred more than 6,000 pounds of documents an hour effortlessly and with total ease. We welcome clients to watch the process as it happens, giving you the chance to personally verify files have been satisfactorily shredded to your liking.
If your business collects and stores sensitive files on a weekly routine and you’re scrambling to keep things organized, you will likely benefit from our scheduled shredding service. This service also comes with the added benefit of secure collection containers, designed to blend seamlessly into any office environment. Files are locked away and protected until our team arrives to begin shredding. At your scheduled shred time, we come to you and empty your bins, shred all contained documents, and return them to you for continued use.
If you’ve discovered files beginning to clutter your home, why not turn to our residential shredding option to take care of this for you? Simply drop your documents off at our secure facility at a date and time that is fitting for your schedule. Shredding is performed right away, and you are more than welcome to watch the process take place as it occurs for peace of mind.
Your hard drives can store a considerable amount of data, and typically much of this data is considered highly confidential. If you’re ready to dispose of old floppy discs or CDs, we will gladly have your electronic waste safely destroyed as well. While you may have heard that wiping a disc clean is enough to eliminate data from a drive, it does not assure permanent data removal. Because of this reality, wiping lacks security and shouldn’t be used to replace destruction. Hard drive destruction services alternatively, guarantee 100% data removal.
We meticulously manage and track all serial numbers connected to your hard drives before the destruction process begins, which includes total pulverization of hardware beyond any chance of recovery. Once the destruction process is finalized, we’ll provide you with a Certificate of Destruction that indicates the associated serial numbers for your own reference. We come to your location to complete the service in a matter of minutes, so you can continue focusing on your workday priorities with little distraction.
Concerned about how our services could affect the environment? We recycle all electronic parts and we offer a secure recycling program for larger office equipment such as computers and keyboards.
When you hire Gator Shredding for your destruction needs, you can have peace of mind in knowing that you will be well looked after throughout the entire process. Through professional, industry-grade shredding performed by our shred specialists, you will stay compliant with all applicable privacy laws.
