Secure Document Shredding Defined: 2020 Edition

secure document shredding

Secure document shredding involves turning paper documents that are typically confidential, secret, or sensitive, into strips so small that they cannot be read or put back together. But when you work with a secure document shredding service, they will think beyond shredding itself. Disposal needs to be secure at every step.

This is essential in a world in which identity theft and cybercrime is on the rise. All it takes is an address to open the door to criminal activity. The loss of trust that follows the loss or theft of confidential information can be far-reaching. Many small businesses never recover. Regulations exist to protect businesses and individuals and it’s necessary to adhere to proper document destruction practices to comply with the law.

As well as keeping business and customer information confidential to avoid corporate espionage, document shredding is an excellent solution for 2020 for businesses that want to reclaim space used unnecessarily for storing documents. With digitalization, it can be a good idea to divest of hard copies, but this needs to be done securely. Secure document shredding is effective and it is an environmentally-friendly alternative to incineration as the shredded paper can be disposed of easily or recycled.

At IntelliShred, we recognize that destroying documents securely requires experience, expertise, tried and tested practices, and accountability.
