Trying to keep a workspace organized can be a challenge, and many people don’t realize that as documents and files start to add up, so does the risk of fraud or a data breach. Leaving sensitive documents or electronic devices out in the open could leave them susceptible to the risk of a data breach. 

It is important that businesses work with their employees to take the necessary steps to safeguard confidential information.

BENEFITS OF A ONE TIME SHRED 

Reduce Human Error 
one time document clean-out means that the workspace will no longer have excess documents, files and electronic devices lying around. According to the Shred-it 2020 Data Protection Report27% of C-suite executives and 25% of small business owners cite human error or accidental loss by an employee as the primary reason for a breach.

Theft Prevention 
Boxes of old files sitting around, years’ worth of emails retained on a computer, or confidential information piling up on desks or visible on computer screens are all opportunities for hackers and information thieves. Decluttering your workspace will mitigate some of these risks areas.

Proof of Destruction 
Following a one time shred, a professional shredding service provider will issue a Certificate of Destruction. A Certificate of Destruction is given to confirm that the intended materials have been destroyed and that the organization is compliant with relevant laws, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
