Why Shred?

1. To protect your business reputation and security.

Information such as bank statements, insurance records, legal documents, medical records, sales receipts, and tax records are just a few examples of confidential materials produced on a regular basis by businesses and consumers alike.  Too often, this data ends up in a dumpster where it is legally available to anyone who retrieves it.  Masters of identity theft consider “trash” the most available source of confidential information. 

To protect YOU, YOUR BUSINESS REPUTATION, YOUR EMPLOYEES, and YOUR IDENTITY, Assure Shred is ready to serve as your reliable and trusted partner for secure, on-site mobile document destruction. 

2. To protect our environment.

As stewards of the environment, Assure Shred recycles all your documents.  After shredding your sensitive information, we deliver your shredded material to a recycling center.  Once it is processed, it is shipped to a paper mill where it is eventually made into recycled paper for many uses. 

To help protect OUR ENVIRONMENT and OUR FUTURE, Assure Shred welcomes the opportunity to serve as your reliable and trusted partner for secure, on-site mobile document destruction. 

3. To be more cost-effective and to increase employee productivity.

Valuable employee time is saved since materials do not need to be sorted, and there is no need to remove staples, paperclips or other fasteners before shredding.  By utilizing Assure Shred’s state-of-the-art shredding capabilities, your employees are able to devote more time to their jobs.  An employee who earns $11.00 an hour who manually shreds documents ninety minutes a week in-house is more costly per month than Assure Shred’s secure document destruction services.  

To help your business utilize more COST-EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES and INCREASE EMPLOYEE PRODUCTIVITY, Assure Shred welcomes the opportunity to serve as your reliable and trusted partner for secure, on-site mobile document destruction. 

4. To guarantee that you comply with the law.

Federal and state legislation requires the secure disposal of consumer information. 

a. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (2003).  Known as FACTA, this law was designed to reduce the risk of consumer fraud and identity theft created by improper disposal of consumer information.  According to the FACTA Disposal Rule, “any person who maintains or otherwise possesses consumer information for a business purpose” must properly destroy discarded consumer information.”  (For more detailed information, refer to our links of interest.)

b. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (1996).  Known as HIPAA, this federal law requires health care organizations to “maintain reasonable and appropriate, technical, and physical safeguards to prevent intentional or unintentional or unintentional use or disclosure of protected health information.”  This includes patient logs, insurance, billing, patient medical records, and other health information that is personally identifiable.  (For more detailed information, refer to our links of interest.)

c. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (1999).  Known as GLBA, this federal law requires banking and financial institutions to protect the confidentiality and security of consumer information.  (For more detailed information, refer to our links of interest.)

d. The New Jersey Identity Theft Prevention Act (Effective January 1, 2006).  Known as ITPA, this state act includes a number of safeguards intended to prevent identity theft and to lessen damages in the event of such theft.  (For more detailed information, refer to our links of interest.)

Although it is the law to have secure measures in place to properly destroy confidential information, compliance with these policies certainly makes excellent business sense.  Furthermore, in the event of a privacy violation, complaint or audit, it is very likely your firm will be asked to verify its compliance to information protection regulations.  Shredding discarded information yourself provides you with no verifiable record of compliance.  By partnering with Assure Shred, certificates of destruction will be issued to substantiate that your sensitive information has been properly destroyed. 

To make certain you COMPLY WITH FEDERAL AND STATE LEGISLATION, Assure Shred is ready to serve as your reliable and trusted partner for secure, on-site mobile document destruction.
