Why Shred

 Because Its's The Law!

Shredding is required in many industries to meet legal standards for document protection.

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that you forfeit the right of ownership to discarded information. This means that courts will not recognize trade information protections if a company can be shown to have disposed of such information without shredding it first.

Industries such as banking, finance, human resources, insurance, and medicine are especially affected by new regulations designed to protect against information theft. The following regulations may apply to your company:

  • Fair and Accurate Credit transactions Act (FACTA)
  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996
  • The Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) of 1999
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)

 Recycling

Recycling is not an adequate alternative for information destruction. Simply put, recycling services cannot guarantee confidentiality.  To extract the scrap value from office paper, recycling companies use unscreened low wage workers to extensively sort the material under unsecured conditions. There is no fiduciary responsibility inherent in the recycling scenario. If something of a private nature surfaced, the selection of this unsecured process could be interpreted as negligent. Recycling as a means of information disposal is not worth the risk of minimizing the need of security over a free or low price method that has only a non-responsible party's interest in mind.

In-House Shredding

If you currently operate a shredder in-house, your internal cost is extremely high. Which means Guardian can save you at least 50%! Internal personnel should not be responsible to destroy certain information. Legal affairs, payroll information, employee reviews, and accounting records are just a few that should remain confidential. If employees are forced to destroy such information, it could allow practices that should legally render profound opportunities. According to federal law enforcement statistics, employees or ex-employees commit over 70% of all corporate crimes.
