So you thought you’d be slick and go with an over the counter document shredder rather than hire a professional service like Data Shredding Services of Dallas.  You figured the couple hundred dollars you spend on the deluxe shredder would be good enough.  Wrong.  Besides the fact that most of these machines lack the technology to adequately destroy your sensitive hard copy data, you’ve failed to consider the most important issue concerning these sub par machines – humans.

How much time have you spent training yourself or your employees in the art of document destruction?  Are you or your employees clear on what need to be destroyed and what doesn’t?  Regardless of your business, privacy laws affect you and you must comply with these laws in order to protect yourself legally.  If documents are not PROPERLY destroyed, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise.
