LEGISLATION

FEDERAL SHREDDING LAWS

Our Shredding Approach Ensures Your Security And Compliance With Privacy Legislation.

Privacy laws require that any documents that contain confidential information must be shredded before they are disposed of or you can face stiff fines and penalties.

Achieve Compliance

GLB, HIPAA, FACTA, FERPA and other state and local privacy legislation require companies to protect confidential information associated with their staff and customers. For peace of mind and to remain in compliance, we highly suggest you implement a “Shred All Policy” for your office. If you have all sensitive documents you’re disposing of professionally shred, you will limit your risk of a data breach substantially. Implementing a recurring shredding service will make it easy for your employees to follow your information destruction policy.

HIPAA

This approach to document shredding does not guarantee destruction and is simply not reliable. Not only that, but it requires employee time and dedication which should be spent performing duties that contribute to business. Our professional team will happily look after the destruction of your documents so you can continue focusing on your business matters. You focus on your business requirements, and we’ll worry about your document shredding with a recurring document shredding schedule that means you don’t have to stress about it!

GLB - Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

This federal regulation requires financial institutions to protect any consumer information that they collect.  Financial institutions are any companies that offer loans, financial advise, or insurance.  Car dealerships that offer financing along with mortgage brokers are subject to this regulation.  Financial institutes that are under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act must tell consumers about their information sharing policies along with providing consumers with the option to “opt out” if they are opposed to having their confidential information shared with certain third parties.

Part of the Safeguards Rule states that paper that contains sensitive and confidential information should be shredded and that financial institutes should strongly consider hiring a company who specializes in safeguarding and shredding paper.

FACTA - The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003

The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 is designed to improve the accuracy of credit-related reports for consumers. It gives individuals access to one free credit report per year, it also adds provisions to help prevent identity theft. Reasonable safeguards are to be in place to insure consumers confidentiality.
