When it comes to retaining personally identifiable information (PII), according to the various regulations that help keep businesses compliant, it doesn’t take long for a company to find itself trapped beneath mountains of paperwork that are both outdated and useless. It’s easy to adopt a “keep everything just in case” mentality when dealing with incredibly sensitive information, but it is that mentality that leads to data and security breaches. PII in the wrong hands, no matter how old the information is, is still an incredibly dangerous situation for the person whose information is being compromised, as well as the institution responsible for safeguarding it.
Improve Security Against Possible Breaches and Theft
Document shredding, like that provided by Corrigan Record Storage, is a great way to cut back on excess paperwork and improve security against possible breaches and theft. By determining what you should keep and getting rid of the rest, you are not only reducing your environmental impact, but also your chances of suffering loss or litigation as a result of theft, human error, and more. If you really hope to compete with the massive companies looming over you, then you need to know when and where to cut unnecessary costs to keep yourself thriving. Unfortunately for many, proper document destruction should not be among those costs that get cut. In order to truly succeed and uphold your shining reputation as a service or product provider, you need to make sure you keep the PII you are responsible for, current and organized. This means shredding documents that you no longer need and making sure they are destroyed properly so that you can stay compliant and operating smoothly. All it takes is one hacker, one thief, one person with ill intentions to steal one piece of information from your organization to bring the entire place to its knees.
