1. Know your legal obligation.
Information security is under more rigorous legislation today than ever before. When you don’t comply with regulations of properly handling sensitive customer information, penalties may apply. You don’t just have a moral obligation to protect the information of your customers, but you also have a legal duty to securely handle customer data.
2. Protect your customers from identity theft.
Identity theft is a growing problem that all businesses should be aware of and have an action plan to prevent it. Shredding documents will ensure that information will never get in the wrong hands. Your customers and employees are counting on you to securely discard unused documents and protect them from identity theft.
3. Free up office space.
Shredding documents that you no longer need not only protects your customers and employees and meets your legal obligation, but it also frees up office space and helps you to get organized. Spending the time to go through your business documents and customer records will create extra space in your office to focus on other areas of your business.
