Whiting, IN Secure Document Shredding

 

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.

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.

 

Cross-Cut Shredders and More

Another name for this type of shredder is “confetti shredder,” and these are popular in home and business environments. The blades on the shredder are specially designed to slice through the paper in different shapes such as small squares or diamonds. This makes any attempt at reassembling extremely difficult. Paper cutting can range from 1/32”-3/8” in width and can produce from 300-900 pieces of paper from a single standard A4 document size. Beyond creating tiny pieces of paper, the results are more compact.

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.

Whiting, Indiana Information

The city is located at the southern end of the former lake bed of the prehistoric Lake Chicago and the current Lake Michigan. Most of the city’s soil, to nearly one foot below the surface, is pure sand. The sand beneath Gary, and on its beaches, is of such volume and quality that for over a century companies have mined it, especially for the manufacture of glass.
