Document Scanning

Data breaches and the government sector

Since government entities manage large quantities of data, it’s vital that proper security protocols are in place. The COVID-19 cyber crime surge has included scams related to stimulus funds, unemployment funds, and vaccination information. Plus, the infamous 2020 U.S. government breach has shown us that agencies are an attractive target for serious hackers who are can inflict widespread damage.

Now more than ever, it’s important to create a comprehensive security plan for your government organization that includes proper disposal of physical records. While digital records are commonplace, paper hasn’t gone away. Whether financial statements or tax forms, there are numerous opportunities for data to get misplaced or put in a recycling bin and get accessed by criminals. Plus, unused or outdated digital media that contains protected data must be securely disposed of as well. Emphasize security at every step of the process and make regular paper and digital shredding one piece of the puzzle.

It is your ethical and legal obligation to keep your agency’s information secure, and there are numerous federal and local laws and regulations that must be adhered to, such as the GrammLeachBliley Act and Right to Financial Privacy Act.

Professional Shredding Is the Secure Option

In a misguided effort to save time and money, agencies might consider shredding their own documents internally but this ends up being costly. Not only does it lack accountability and a documented chain of command, but there’s no guarantee of compliance. Valuable information may be left behind in the recycling bin if staff are permitted to decide what documents are shredded. Plus, often in-office shredding machines aren’t secure enough to prevent thieves from piecing together data. Finally, if you’re paying your highly skilled workers to shred paper instead of performing their job duties, your agency is incurring significant cost.

  • Steve Boicourt ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    After de cluttering our home office we were left with two huge boxes of documents that needed shredded. We didn’t have the time or motivation to shred them with our personal shredder. I looked into dropping the boxes off at a local chain … More store that advertises shredding, but their bin was full and they didn’t know when the truck would pick it up. I searched again, and found DataSafe. I called and arranged for next day pickup service. It was very smooth and convenient service. Considering the amount of documents and the quick pickup service, the rate was very reasonable. I would recommend DataSafe to anyone with large shredding needs.

    I hired DataSafe to pick up 30 boxes of shredding off site for my company. They matched a lower price that I was quoted by another company and were super flexible when I found 10 extra boxes. We will definitely use them in the future.
