Identity theft cases are unfortunately a continuous issue among much of the United States; If you are a business owner or resident for that matter, in Parkersburg, it is critical that you take the proper preventative measures to reduce your risk of falling victim to this crime. For instance, do you currently have a document management process in place that ensures data and information is secured at all times? How are old documents disposed of? These are the areas of your business that require specific and detailed attention if you want to remain organized and protected from outside threats. Without proper document shredding practices in place for example, how can you be confident information isn’t slipping out the door unknowingly if you don’t have secure methods in place?
An effective document management process includes certain procedures that contribute to the overall organization, efficiency and security of your office. Some companies will implement a Clean Desk Policy, which motivates and reminds your staff to keep their desks clutter-free and most importantly, free from confidential paperwork that could otherwise be lost or stolen and therefore a security concern.
Taking adequate responsibility over the security of your documents is necessary until the retention period is up, whereby our document shredding services come in. When documents are no longer relevant, they should be disposed of in lockable security containers where they will stay secured until collected for destruction. When you partner with a professional shredding company like Gator Shredding, your Parkersburg business will be supplied with these lockable containers at no extra fee when you sign up for regular shredding services.
Gator Shredding goes through great measures to ensure that all documents and media are disposed in a secure and confidential manner. Our specialized paper shredding trucks bring 6000lbs of document shredding power per hour to your location. Gator Shredding is both HIPAA compliant and FACTA compliant.
