With so much emphasis being put on security both in terms of our identity and our finances it is important to ensure that every effort is made to make the identity thief’s job as difficult as possible. One way of doing this is to shred all documents that may contain information about you or members of your family which may allow the identity thief to build up a picture of either you as an individual or any other member of your family.
There are a number of different methods of destruction appropriate for the different media on which the records are stored. Our Secured Destruction Area is devoted to destroying media and documents only. The restricted area is alarmed and under closed circuit internal video security at all times. Entrance is strictly controlled and the area is always locked. Management confirms the inbound material received to confirm receipt, proper quantity and any special instructions. Confidential document carts are staged in the order they are received and destroyed within 24 business hours
Document Retention: Depending on the the amount of paperwork you have held on to throughout the years at your home office or at work; you may find satisfaction in starting with what you can toss or shred immediately. Then move on to planning your long term and short-term storage areas and file solutions. Files that are one to two years old should be kept more accessible and files that are 3 years or older can be moved into long-term storage.
