You might already be aware of why document shredding is so vital to your business, but Dependable Express also wants you to be aware of what documents that you should always shred. No matter how unimportant a document might seem, it still has the potential to land you in legal trouble or cause you to lose clients and customers should that document fall into the wrong hands. Before you simply throw away that slip of paper with a phone number on it, you might want to think about finding local shredding services.
If you throw away proprietary or private data without shredding it, you are leaving yourself open to civil and criminal prosecution. If documents contain any of the following, consider local shredding services.
- Phone numbers
- Brokerage account information
- Insurance information
- Passport number
- Employment information
Sweat the Small Stuff
