Everyone has turned on the local news to see some local company that improperly discarded client’s files in the dumpster. Most of the time it is an employee who did not receive the proper training. It comes down to poor business practices. Another poor business practice is recycling without destroying. We see it on a daily basis. Loading docks all over the city with unlocked recycling bins waiting for pick-up. These recycling bins are filled with company proprietary information along with their client’s personal and confidential information. Any individual walking the street has complete and legal permission to rifle through these containers and take whatever they find. Pretty scary right? Not as scary as what the recyclers do with the contents of those bins.
Recyclers tell their clients that when paper is recycled it is destroyed during the process. This is true. What recyclers do not tell their clients is the route the paper takes to be recycled. Recyclers will send their transfer trucks around the city to collect paper deposited in their containers. The transfer trucks return to their facilty where they unload the paper into the balers. Information is baled fully intact and staged for shipment.
China and Mexico are the largest purchasers of raw material to be recycled. That is correct, those bales with company and personal information land on the docks of foreign countries perfectly intact. You are probably saying “there has to be laws against such things!” We have many laws on how sensative information is to be maintainted and destroyed. From HIPAA, Gramm-Leech-Bliley, FACTA, Sarbanes-Oxley and the Texas Business Commerce Code, regulators have worked hard to protect the consumer. The fact is that many companies believe they are destroying because they have not been given the correct information in regards to recycling. There are plenty of good companies for Houston shredding services. Please visit http://www.naidonline.org/ to find a directory of companies. Shredding is very cost effective and not only protects your company, but it protects your clients who have put their trust in you.

Nobody shreds it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody shreds it, half the size as you
Baby, you’re the best
And nobody shreds it better
Though sometimes I wish someone could
Nobody does it quite the way you do
Why’d you have to be so good?

Identity thefts are one of the greatest concerns, today, all around the world. There is constant news of misuse of personal information coming from across the globe. Electronic medium of disbursing information is constantly revising their privacy policies and introducing high levels of encryption for their data. However, information theft is not local to the electronic media alone.
It would be surprising to note that majority of information thefts and business espionage still happen from the traditional paper documents. Disposal of these documents is now in focus as they contain plenty of sensitive information that could be misused. We are now aware that misuse of private information can lead to loss of respect and trust. These are recognized as the basis of businesses. Therefore, the focus now is not just on document disposal but efficient document disposal.
The most sought after method of document disposal is document shredding or paper shredding. Shredding of documents ensures that the important pages are turned into a mass of meaningless confetti. Shredders are a must in all businesses to protect the identity of client or their products.
It would be most disappointing to find that your competitor has gotten hold of your businesses’ new proposal data. Or there has been a leak from your client database. It would be embarrassing to have to inform your client or employee of the unfortunate leak of their private data. It would cause the personnel working for you and the client to distrust you in the future. A client might withdraw a contract or not approach you for further work.
Business espionage counts on your negligence to properly discard your documents for obtaining access to company secrets. It can result in great financial and client base loss if your competitor out quotes you. Many times one might throw suspicion on trustworthy employees when the mistake would be on sheer negligence. Such situations cause a bad taste on the part of the company and leave the employee displeased. A displeased employee may either show low productivity or might leave for a different job.
Such unpleasant situations can be prevented by adopting proper paper shredding methodologies. A safe disposal system guarantees a business against loss of personnel, finance and safe guard’s client details.
