Confidential Shredding Companies: Professionals in Identity Protection

It’s hard to say when the term “Identity Theft” became a household phrase, but one thing is clear: Identity theft is a very real crime that robs its victims not just of their names but of their time, good credit, and sense of security. Luckily, there are ways to protect yourself and your identity from thieves.

Shredding all paperwork with identifying data is the easiest, safest, and often most affordable way to protect yourself from getting your identity stolen. Unfortunately, the task of shredding your documents by yourself can be time consuming and cumbersome. Confidential shredding companies are a great alternative for both individuals and businesses regarding this matter.

Using confidential shredding services is convenient and often affordable. Customers can choose how often they need the service, ranging from as much as daily to as little as yearly, making the service viable for both the individual and for businesses that produce a higher volume of paperwork. Also, shredding services can destroy any product with identifying data, including CD’s and floppy discs - something personal shredders cannot do.

When choosing a professional confidential shredding company, it is very important to choose one that is a member of the NAID — the National Association for Information Destruction. This association requires all members to follow a code of ethics as well as a certification program. Also, always go with a professional shredding company that requires their employees to be bonded, which gives you an extra layer of security and protection that shredding at home simply can’t provide.

Hard Drive Destruction for Biz Security
