Destroying documents that contain sensitive information is a necessity. Whether you are dealing with personal information or private Tacoma company information, document shredding will help ensure you don’t let confidential material fall into the wrong hands.
As cases of identity theft and data breaches continue to rise, several laws, including FACTA, have been created dictating how companies handle the private information of customers and employees.
Shredding services offer a comprehensive solution for organizations that produce large volumes of paperwork that contain sensitive information. For a low price, hundreds of pounds worth of documents can be picked up and securely shredded.
However, if your Tacoma office doesn’t produce large volumes of sensitive paperwork, shredding services may not be your answer. Because it’s still important to thoroughly destroy confidential paperwork, purchasing your own personal or office shredder may be your best option.
How to Choose a Paper Shredder
Step one when selecting a paper shredder is evaluating your needs.
- How many sheets will you want to shred at a time?
- How small do you want the shredded bits to be?
- How much space can you dedicate to your shredder?
- Do you need a shredder than can handle staples, clips, or cardboard?
- How long do you want your shredder to last?
- Is noise level a factor you need to consider?
Once you have a better understanding of how you will be using your shredder, you can determine what features your shredder will need.
If you are considering purchasing your own paper shredder, it is imperative to do research. Select a document shredder that can handle your needs and won’t break down or jam easily. Destroying confidential documents is crucial to avoid identity theft—make sure you choose a shredder that can get the job done.
