Hard Drive Destruction
Data breaches and the financial industry
Businesses in the financial world generate and store massive amounts of vital data. While financials have always been susceptible to data breaches and hacks, the U.S. FBI has reported a surge in cyber crime during COVID-19. Now more than ever, it’s important to make sure your business has a comprehensive security plan in place. While digital records are commonly used in the financial sector, paper hasn’t gone anywhere. Whether financial statements or tax forms, there are numerous opportunities for data to get misplaced, erroneously placed in a recycling bin, or picked up by would-be criminals lurking around your office. And how are you handling unused and outdated digital media that contains data protected under any of the numerous financial privacy laws that be must followed?
Emphasize security at every step of the process and make regular paper and digital shredding one piece of the puzzle.

Professional Shredding Is the Secure Option
Financial offices are sometimes tempted to shred their own documents but this is an expensive option. Without accountability and a documented chain of command, you’re not guaranteed compliance. Valuable information may be left behind in the recycling bin if employees are permitted to decide what documents are shredded. Plus, even documents that are shredded can still contain legible data since in-office shredding machines aren’t secure enough. Criminals may be able to piece together paper from a strip-cut or cross-cut shredder. Finally, if you’re paying your highly skilled workers to shred paper instead of performing their job duties, your organization is incurring significant cost.
