Corporate Information Security & Document Destruction

You run the company, we’ll protect your business.

Secure Shredding Services for Executives

Shareholders, employees, and customers rely on senior executives to guide their company, protect its interests, and deliver excellent value for the products and services the company provides.

Meeting those expectations relies, in part, on protecting and securing the organisation’s proprietary, confidential, and personal information.

When employees don’t know how to identify and secure confidential information, the business is at serious risk of an information breach.

Protecting your confidential information isn’t just good business, it’s the law!

Laws designed to protect identities, medical information, financial data, and personal privacy come with strict rules – and strong fines for violating them. We can help you stay compliant.

Here are just a few of the key Federal, State, and Local information security laws that require privacy compliance.

Payment Card Industry Security Standards

Aims to enhance security for consumers by setting guidelines for any company that accepts, stores, processes, or transmits credit card information. The act focuses on improving payment security throughout the transaction process created by the major payment card brands.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Protects the personal data and privacy of EU citizens and applies to all companies, whether they operate in the EU or outside. This includes EU citizens visiting or living in the United States.

Protecting confidential information is more than passwords.

Not everything your organisation collects, stores, or handles is digital. When financial forecasts or year-end results are printed, or when reports or agendas are circulated for a meeting, they are at risk of getting into the wrong hands if they are not handled and disposed of properly and securely. And for that reason alone, every business is at risk of an information breach.

It’s not just you that you have to worry about. It’s your employees, too. Without clear practices and policies for the handling and disposal of confidential information, you are relying on your staff to make the right choices when discarding of documents. And if they are choosing between the waste or the recycling bin, neither one is secure. Confidential information that hasn’t been securely destroyed poses a significant risk to your information security. 

Learn to Recognize the Risks.

If you create, collect, or dispose of these types of documents, you and your organisation could be at-risk of an information breach:

  • Payroll
  • Contracts
  • Tax Filings and Internal Audits
  • Financial Statements
  • Invoices
  • Strategic Development Plans and Forecasts
  • Balance Sheets
  • Purchase Orders
