Identity theft unfortunately takes place more often than you’d think, and it appears this might be the case for quite some time to come as we continue to hear about information theft cases in the news, reported across the country. If you are a business owner in Huntington, it is highly suggested that you implement the necessary security measures that reduce your risk of falling victim to this trying crime. Something to consider for instance; what does your current document management process look like, and are you practicing secure document storage and disposal of sensitive information?
These are the questions you’ll want to address and should be taking seriously if you want your business to remain clutter-free and safe from outside threats. If you are lacking a document shredding program, how can you be confident that records aren’t making their way outside your office?
A document management program is only as effective as the effort that is put forth in planning it. The goal is to improve organization, reduce security risks, and contribute to higher levels of employee productivity. In order to achieve this, some businesses throughout Huntington, will adopt a Clean Desk Policy, which encourages and reminds your employees to keep their desks free of documents and most notably, free from confidential paperwork that could otherwise be lost or stolen and therefore a security concern.
Taking appropriate responsibility over the security of your documents is essential until the retention period is up, whereby our document shredding solutions come into play. When documents are no longer needed for future reference, they should be disposed of in lockable security containers where they will remain protected until our team comes to your location to complete the shredding process. When you hire a professional shredding company like Gator Shredding, your Huntington business can also take advantage of free collection containers with a regular shredding service; protect your information from prying eyes and have peace of mind in knowing that everything will remain untouched, locked away.
Gator Shredding goes great lengths to verify all data and records are disposed in a secure and confidential manner. Our specialized mobile shred trucks bring 6000lbs of document shredding power per hour to your location. There is no need to worry about our credentials as we are also proud to share that we are HIPAA compliant and FACTA compliant.

We always encourage our clients to come witness the destruction if they’d like extra reassurance. With every shred job, you are also supplied documented proof that your documents have been shred in accordance with privacy legislation and performed with the highest level of service.

We will go through each service option with you, tailoring your program the way you wish. If you have a significant volume of paper on an ongoing routine, you may prefer our on-going shredding service; if you’d like to clean up unnecessary clutter and/or you’re relocating across the city, a one-time purge for your company may be the better choice.
