Corporate Security Risks
Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Corporate security has never been more critical.  With the evolution of technology enabling the rapid sharing of information, companies now require data security equal or better than their physical security.  Scandals such as the Snowden incident and the cyber attack at Anthem have made it clear that no one is free from threat.


Most data security breaches are driven by money, though some are aimed at causing destruction within the business.  Attacks can generally be categorized as physical or electronic.


A physical data breach occurs when files, computers, or portable devices are stolen or misused.  In 2006, the Department of Veterans Affairs experienced a physical data breach when the home of one of their employees was burglarized.  During the burglary, a laptop containing the personal information of more than 26 million veterans was taken.  Fortunately, the laptop was later recovered. 


Electronic data breaches are becoming more and more common, occurring when information is illegally obtained using technology or hacking.  TJX Companies were victims of an electronic data breach in 2006 when hackers stole more than 45 millions customer records.


Any kind of breach can easily cost an organization millions of dollars, not to mention time, customers, and reputation.  Instead of waiting to deal with the repercussions, it’s important to establish safeguards to minimize your risk.


In addition to implementing secure technology practices, many companies are shifting to a “shred all” policy.  This means that any document no longer needed is shredded.  Employees do not have to wonder whether the document is sensitive or not, it is shredded regardless.  Shredding services are one easy way to avoid confidential information from being compromised.


Document Destruction can set up regularly scheduled shredded services to aid your company on the path to security.  Contact us today to get started.

"Four Reasons To Use Document Destruction"

Don't get us wrong, using your own paper shredder is better than nothing, but organizations
that implement internal shredding programs are not being as frugal or as secure as they think they are.

   1. We shred your documents on-site in front of your eyes into confetti.

   2. Document Destruction is NAID CERTIFIED & ACCREDITED for
       document shredding. Document Destruction is audited annually to
       verify that every employee is uniformed, bonded, I.D. badged,
       drug tested, criminally background checked and is fully trained in
       the latest security measures.

   3. In addition to general liability insurance, Document Destruction has
       PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY COVERAGE to protect you against the following:
         • Unauthorized access to or theft of sensitive documents
         • Intentional acts by my employees
         • Negotiable instruments falling into the wrong hands
         • Identity theft stemming from information on sensitive documents
         • Violations of privacy, i.e. involving medical records

   4.  Since starting Document Destruction in 2004, we have NEVER had a
        security breach or had a client's private & confidential documents fall
        into the wrong hands. Secure document destruction is vital to a company's
        survival. This includes trade secrets, customer lists, employee records and
        records that need to be protected as required by federal law. I am personally
        committed to helping protect your firm's information and guarantee that they
        are safe and will never see the light of day.
