Archive and Storage

The Good Old Days

The process of disposing sensitive customer information and employee records has changed since the early days of doing business.

Maturity of identity theft crimes and higher internet usage among the public have brought about new government regulations that affect all business sectors.

The days of simply throwing items in a waste paper basket are long gone.

Archive and StorageMany companies archive and poorly store sensitive documentation because they lack an efficient system of proper removal and destruction.


Do It Yourself

Self Shred

In the early stages of compliance, some businesses purchased their own machines and assigned employees to the task of shredding.

But in-office shredding is no longer considered “acceptable compliance” by most government agencies.

Studies show companies that self-shred not only waste valuable employee time, they lack proof of document destruction in case of an audit or lawsuit.

Internal personnel should not be responsible for destroying certain information like payroll data, client records and legal affairs. This process can lead to human error, or the throwing away of non-shredded material to save time. This can easily lead to security breaches.


Time and Weight

On-Site Shredding

Companies and business owners began searching for full-service shredding companies to assist with the burden of properly disposing sensitive records.

Originally, there were on-site shredding companies that charged by the pound or for the amount of time they spent at your location. This did not prove to be cost effective for most businesses.

On-site shreddingcould not fully support the compliance of disposal.


Where or When

Off-Site Shredding

Then along came companies that performed off-site shredding services. Although a more efficient process, the main problem was not knowing for sure what happened to your documents once they left your premises. Where were they taken and when were they destroyed?

Even a Certificate of Destruction, didn’t always answer all the questions.

Regulations are continually evolving due to lawsuits that challenge and change compliance in the growing industry of document and media destruction.

Companies are forced to find the most advanced methods of compliance.


A new compliance

Electronic Media

One of the newest compliance issues in the shredding process is the destruction of electronic media (hard drives, data CDs, memory sticks and floppy drives).

Of the few companies that do offer electronic media destruction, it is found the material is only shreddedand not degaussed(the process of rendering magnetic data unrecoverable).

It is possible to read data on even the smallest piece of media if not degaussed before destruction.


The cause of it all

Identity Theft

The massive increase of Identity Theft has heightened individual awareness of personal information.

The simple act of shredding and complying with the law protects the customer but not an individual business.

“The number one underlying source of identity fraud is theft of employer records. A Michigan State University study found that 51 percent of all identity thefts occur in the workplace, usually perpetrated by people hired to perform low-level tasks, such as data entry.”

- BLR Business and Legal Reports.


Employment records prove ripe source for identity theft

Job applications, personnel records and other employment data that should be safely filed in company offices or computers are instead being taken by thieves who use the information to steal workers' identities.

New ID theft rule requires destruction of employee records

As of June 1, the Disposal Rule requires businesses and individuals to take appropriate measures to dispose of sensitive information derived from consumer reports. This includes reports received with information relating to employment background such as criminal and education checks.

“Identity theft is a problem largely because financial institutions, merchants, credit bureaus, and the government do not adequately safeguard vast databases and other records containing consumers’ sensitive information, making it relatively easy for thieves--often insiders--to access these data.
