With our scheduled, recurring shredding services, your government agency will be secure and compliant.
Hard Drive Destruction
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 Plus, unused or outdated digital media that contains protected data must be securely disposed of as well.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.

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.
