    Paper Shredding Regulations

    MicroShred offers many secure shredding solutions for every confidentiality need:

    On-Site Scheduled Routes – Daily, weekly, monthly and semi-monthly scheduled route services are available. With this program, several sizes of stylish and office-friendly bins are provided at no charge to easily store, lock and secure all sensitive materials designated for shredding.

    Off-Site Document DestructionWhile our core business is mobile/on-site document destruction, we will provide off-site shredding services at no extra charge when a client requests it. MicroShred’s customer service representatives will come to your location, collect the material designated for destruction and safely transport it to our  facility to be destroyed immediately upon arrival.

    Occasional Purge Program – For those requiring annual, one-time or occasional shredding service, we offer a specially priced purge program.

    Excess or Rejected InventoryProtect your company from possible ID theft by destroying inventory that is overstocked, damaged or outdated. Products such as CDs, DVDs, magnetic tapes/discs, audio/video tapes, films/microfiche, plastic ID cards, x-rays, uniforms, labels, pill bottles and any other medical or commercial products of plastics and light metals can be easily destroyed by our trucks.

    Computer Hard Drive Destruction & DisposalMicroShred’s shredding trucks are equipped with two independent powerful shredders, one for paper shredding and the other designed to destroy computer hard drives and related media. The shreds are kept uncontaminated by one another in separate compartments for recycling purposes. This allows both paper and hard drives to be shredded on the same service stop.

    Financial Record DestructionMicroShred can handle all your financial record shredding needs. Utilizing truck-mounted powerful industrial shredders, we provide a secure, convenient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly method to dispose of highly confidential documents. Our mobile units come to you and shred all sensitive material at your location, under your supervision.

    Medical Record DestructionDid you know that medical records are one of the primary targets for identity thieves? Thieves can steal your identity to get health services or insurance under your name. And just like your credit history, it’s important to keep track of your medical records, shredding any copies of them the second you’re done.

    Legal Document DestructionIt’s a well established fact that attorneys who deal with their clients’ financial activities fall under the mandated provisions of the Financial Modernization Act of 1999 – better known as the Gramm-Leach  Bliley Act, or GLB. If your practice menu includes real estate closings, financial planning, or estate planning – or if you represent a client in any other financial area – you fall under GLB guidelines.

  • Shredding sensitive or confidential documents are beneficial in keeping personal information, just that, personal.

    Posted on October 3rd, 2013 admin No comments

    There is nothing that can be worse than walking into a car dealership, trying to get approved for a new car that you desperately need, and learn that you have already bought the car last week, your debt to income ratio is too high, you have a few extra credit cards to your name, and none of this you have known anything about! As you sit stunned trying to comprehend what has happened, the identity thief is driving away in a brand new Audi under your name. Unfortunately, you have been a victim of identity theft.

    credit-compromised-do-criminals-have-your-personal-identity

    In today’s world there is such a concern about identity theft because it surrounds us whether it is in your own place of business, where you bank, paying bills online or even just shopping online. The need to take measurable steps to protect oneself has become a daily norm for us. So what measures can you take to protect yourself from desperate thieves who want to wreak havoc on your life?

    Shredding sensitive or confidential documents are beneficial in keeping personal information, just that, personal. With technology evolving, programs are sometimes difficult to access to gain a person’s private information. However, if you accidentally throw away any paperwork that contains personal information like your full name, address, social security number, and date of birth, that’s enough ammunition for a crook to sabotage your life. The trouble you would face cleaning this kind of mess up will cost you thousands of dollars as well as a massive headache.

    You do not want to be a victim of identity theft so why leave it to chance? Do not discard your personal documents, instead have them shredded.

    At MicroShred, we are committed to keeping your information private and will ensure your documents will be shredded and safely discarded. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

  • Help Keep Personal Information Private

    Posted on October 3rd, 2013 admin No comments

    You decide to throw your confidential paperwork into the trash. But do you know where your trash ends up? Eventually, it ends up in a landfill, the bags are left opened and then dumped into a pile and left. Your credit card statements with your account numbers are now open to the public. In order to protect yourself from fraud you should be shredding your sensitive material. Statistics have shown that people mainly get their hands on a person’s confidential information by a process called “bin raiding”. By the time you have realized that you have had your identity kidnapped, it’s a year later and the damage is already done.

    A thief doesn’t need anything more than one or two pieces of personal information from your trash and some highly designed tools to steal your identity. With this, a thief can have a field day with your credit card in Dolphin Mall spending an exorbitant amount of money. In places where confidentiality is a necessity, like hospitals, financial institutions and schools, shredding is a priority in keeping people’s IDs safe and secure. The most effective way for them to achieve this is by shredding sensitive documents. The same should go for everyone else to help keep personal information private and the most effective way to discard these pertinent details is to completely destroy them.

    You do not want to give away your identity, so protect yourself by having your sensitive material shredded. You will have peace of mind if you know your private information will remain private and will not fall into the wrong hands. Do not give any thief an opportunity to walk away with your name, social security number and/or credit card information, all of which you have worked so hard to build.

    Here at MicroShred we are committed to your privacy and we ensure that your documents are properly and securely shredded and discarded. Please contact us for more information.

  • The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)

    Posted on August 6th, 2013 admin 1 comment

    What is GLBA?

    Also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) was enacted in 1999 to protect private consumer information held by financial institutions. The GLBA requires banks to develop privacy notices and to provide customers with the option of prohibiting the sharing of their confidential information with non-affiliated third parties. On July 1, 2001, the Act was amended, requiring financial organizations to have a comprehensive, written information security program in place.

    Who is affected by GLBA ?

    The GLBA applies to virtually every business in the United States engaged in the “financial services” industry: institutions that provide financial products and services to consumers. This applies to all national banks and federal branches of foreign banks that are required to follow US banking regulations.

    According to the Act, financial institutions are required to implement a comprehensive, written information security program that includes proper administrative, technical and physical safeguards, the nature of which are dependent upon the size and complexity of the organization. This requirement extends to any subsidiaries of the parent financial organization. The program must be designed to protect consumers’ non-public, personally-identifiable information by ensuring security and confidentiality of data, by preventing potential risks and threats to data, and by protecting against unauthorized access to or use of consumers’ private information.

    When using service providers such as an outsourced document destruction company, financial institutions have a duty to safeguard their customers’ information while it is in the possession of the outsourced company. To adhere to this, the financial organization must use due diligence in selecting, managing and monitoring the service provider to ensure consumers’ private information is protected. This includes entering into contracts with a document destruction company when appropriate.
