In today’s business environment, every organization collects and maintains sensitive information. Although many businesses are making the shift to storing data electronically, many businesses still store paper files. If you’re one of those businesses, you may be wondering what to do with those important documents when they’re no longer needed. Customer lists, payroll records, and credit card information are all things that should be disposed in a paper shredder.
In order to protect your employees, your customers, and your business, it’s essential to shred documents when they’re no longer needed. When these documents are still in your possession, it’s important that you store them in a safe and protected location.
It’s important to do everything possible to protect your customers’ identities. Although you shouldn’t write down credit card information, if you do, it’s important that you shred this information right away. The same goes for any documents that have sensitive customer information on it.
Legislation regarding information privacy and security is getting more and more rigorous, and it continues to be strictly enforced. Penalties can be severe for businesses that fail to comply with these regulations.
