Shredding Services in Joliet, IL

When most people think of shredding, they automatically default to paper or document shredding. However, the amount of documents being transferred to digital formats takes the concept of shredding to entirely new levels. The technologies that we store critical information is now viewed as a priority for destruction, and as we attempt to transition to a paperless society, and with the addition of state and federal laws regarding protection of proprietary and customer/patient data, every business is being faced with the requirement for both document and digital shredding. To accomplish these tasks on a high security level, organizations are turning to licensed, professional data destruction companies for shredding services.

Why Shredding Services Are Important

Breaches may be most known as those accomplished by hackers that break into a network, however, criminals will attempt any form of theft to access proprietary and personal information. One of the easiest methods of theft is insecure disposal and re-use of devices that have reached end-of-life and are replaced by newer technologies. Tech savvy criminals can buy these devices on eBay, look for them at nonprofits where they are donated, or buy them at bulk commercial locations where they are sold for parts. Patient, customer, client, and company information is held on these devices when an organization simply assumed that “deleting” would get rid of the data.

Organizations that use their own in-house strip shredders in an attempt to save money have found that criminals have accessed the strips and re-assembled them to expose sensitive company and personal information.

Best Practices for Data Destruction Companies

When looking for a company that will be responsible for all data destruction there are a few best practices that will be a priority to assure that all documents and devices are being destroyed:

Hard Drive and Product Destruction

All businesses make use of a variety of technology devices to store, update, and maintain high level security information regarding their organization, employees, clients, contracts, and profitability. Criminals know that many companies are less than knowledgeable when it comes time to upgrading these devices and will often simply delete the files and folders and then donate or sell the devices. Tech-savvy criminals are on the lookout for these technologies and can access the critical data and then sell everything on the dark web. There are state and federal laws in place that require companies to ensure that all customer/patient information is secure and the best way to do this is to use a licensed and professional data destruction company such as SHREDDRS.

Document Destruction

The era of shredding documents in-house and then adding them to recycling is long gone. Too many companies have found out the hard way that simple single strip shredding has allowed criminals to reassemble their critical and important organizational and client/patient information so that it can be sold on the dark web, causing company breaches, identity theft, and fines for abusing state and federal laws for data protection. There is a requirement for businesses to take document destruction seriously by hiring licensed and professional document destruction companies such as SHREDDRS, who will guarantee that all documents are shredded to the maximum so that the information can never be used.

Joliet, Illinois Information

Joliet has a sprawling, irregular shape that extends into nine different townships, more than any other Illinois city. They are: Joliet, Plainfield, Troy, New Lenox, Jackson, Channahon, and Lockport in Will County, and Na-Au-Say and Seward in Kendall County. Joliet is a Des Plaines River town, with the downtown located in the river valley. This is especially evident on Interstate 80 if one is coming from the east or the west where it has been flat for many miles and suddenly the land drops as one approaches the river. This offers a great view looking north to see downtown Joliet. For most of its existence, Joliet geographically has had its “west side” and “east side”, referring to areas to the west or the east of the river, which runs through the city. Both sides were roughly proportionate throughout most of its history until the second half of the 20th century, when westward expansion began.
