Shredding sensitive or confidential documents are beneficial in keeping personal information, just that, personal.
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.
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.
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.
It is important to protect your business from identity theft and fraud. MicroShred’s mobile shredding trucks will travel to any location in southern Florida and destroy confidential documents ranging from financial and legal records to computer hard drives.
Companies tend to have a greater need for shredding services. There is more of a chance for businesses to be affected by identity theft or fraud because of the significant number of confidential documents. Identity theft sets the government, American citizens, and businesses back by billions of dollars each year. From 2005 to 2010, 64.1% of these instances involved credit card fraud, the fastest growing type of identity theft.
The best option is to hire an experienced and professional company like MicroShred, the top paper shredding company in south Florida. Hiring MicroShred for your business will be a great investment and better prepare you for the future. MicroShred will provide you with enhanced security, consistent and reliable shredding practices and verified compliance with information protection regulations.
If you prefer off-site document destruction instead of shredding on-site, our mobile shredding trucks will travel to you to pick up your material to be destroyed. All of MicroShred’s trucks are secure and your materials will be carefully transported to our shredding facility to be destroyed immediately upon arrival. Finally, MicroShred is environmentally friendly as all the paper shreds are taken to a recycling center to be transformed into new material.
The following are the top confidential documents to shred:
- financial records
- payroll records
- legal documents
- account records
- medical records
- confidential correspondence
- tax records
- outdated business records
- invoices and cancelled checks
After each service visit, MicroShred will provide customers with a Certificate of Destruction (COD). Included on the COD is the date of the service and acts as proof that all the confidential documents were destroyed beyond recognition and disposed of properly.
MicroShred’s services will ensure your business is protected so that you can focus on what really matters.
In addition to document destruction, MicroShred provides computer hard drive shredding services.
Destruction of your hard drive is the best method for protecting yourself from identity theft.
Destroying your computer hard drive is very important because it’s not enough to simply just erase all files and folders. They may not be entirely gone. It is important to realize that older computers that are not wiped out equal a major security risk for individuals and businesses. There is still a chance that an experienced hacker can uncover fragments of sensitive information such as consumer identification, social security numbers, credit card information, bank statements, investment records and anything else you may have kept on your computer. This information will easily allow thieves to engage in credit card fraud or identity theft.
MicroShred is the best option to dispose of computer hard drives because we are the top hard drive shredding company in southern Florida. We have a special shredder that is specifically designed to destroy computer hard drives and related media.
MicroShred’s destruction system includes total physical destruction of hard drives into pieces, and allows customers to view the disposal of all documents on-site. It is also an environmentally friendly process, in which all materials are then recycled.
Everything about MicroShred is professional, from their customer service representatives to the highly trained employees in the field. The security and safety of all customers is MicroShred’s top priority. MicroShred is trusted by federal, state and local government agencies. Our services will ensure your business is protected and you can focus on what really matters.
