Protect Your Law Firm and Your Clients
Secure Document Destruction in Oregon
As a law firm, your first concern is for your clients. They trust you with so much and it’s your legal and ethical responsibility to ensure that the confidential data you acquire is securely disposed of. Since law firms so regularly deal with vast amounts of private information, office managers often assume that their disposal processes are sufficient. In fact, it’s vital that firms regularly assess their data security and, if necessary, upgrade their storage and disposal methods.
DataSafe has been working with law firms in the Portland, Oregon area for over three decades. Our experience helps us develop streamlined, secure plans for the management, collection, and destruction of confidential data. With our scheduled, recurring shredding services, your firm will rest assured that your business and your clients will be secure and compliant.
Hard Drive Destruction
Data Breaches and Law Firms
Law firms collect massive amounts of personal data. But, like so many other industries, the law is susceptible to identity theft and data breaches. In fact, breaches have become more commonplace due to the abundance of valuable client information that law firms handle. Even though digital formats are used more and more, paper hasn’t gone anywhere. That’s double the amount of data you must properly store and dispose of.
Whether it’s a data breach due to a third-party vendor, ransomware attacks, or simply a careless employee placing records in a recycling bin, there are endless opportunities for criminals to access private information. Law firms need to emphasize security at every step and regular paper and digital shredding is a major piece of the puzzle.
DataSafe has been serving law firms in the Portland, Oregon area for decades. With our long history, we’ve seen it all and we’ve shredded it all. Plus, DataSafe:

Professional Shredding Is the Secure Option
Offices are often tempted to shred their own documents but this is a costly option. Without a documented chain of command, there’s no accountability to ensure compliance. If employees are free to pick and choose what is shredded, your firm is likely leaving valuable data accessible in a recycling bin.
Even worse is the fact that in-office shredding machines are often not secure enough. Thieves, if they’re motivated enough, can piece together paper from a strip-cut or cross-cut shredder. Plus, shredding takes up a lot of employee time – this is a significant cost to your firm. Learn how a professional shredding service can improve your bottom line.
