There are many situations when a business may need immediate document destruction “yesterday.” Sometimes, due to high work volume and deadlines, office cleanup may not be managed perfectly or, perhaps a deadline for disposing documents has to be pushed forward because of a move or an inspection. Whatever the reason, drop off shredding centers are your best and most common sense means to an end.
Because of the prevalence of identity theft, the Federal Government now requires that businesses destroy all documents that contain protected information of clients, employees and associates such as: social security numbers, names, addresses and driver’s license numbers. Maintaining these files in office is now a legal liability as cited in The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003. This federal law mandates the destruction of documents that contain protected information.
The FACT Act states:
Sec. 682.3 Proper disposal of consumer information.
A) Standard. Any person who maintains or otherwise possesses consumer information, or any compilation of consumer information, for a business purpose must properly dispose of such information by taking reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to or use of the information in connection with its disposal.
B) Examples. Reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to or use of consumer information in connection with its disposal would include implementing and monitoring compliance with policies and procedures that require the burning, pulverizing, or shredding of papers containing consumer information so that the information cannot practicably be read or reconstructed.
