The office is a busy place and hundreds of files are shared every day in each office space through internet and paper files. Can you be sure that every file sent during business hours are carefully shared without any threat to privacy? It’s a difficult position to be in when running a company and trying to decide the best way to protect secure data as it passes through channels in the office. Highly sensitive documents require special care to ensure they are not being shared, stored or disposed of inappropriately. As it happens there are many federal requirements when it comes to the destruction of secure data so how can you be sure that your office isn’t at risk?
- Create a storage and destruction committee whose primary task is to make sure other employees are following the correct protocol for secure documents.
- Enforce a storage and disposal system for any paper documents that contain private information about clientele and employees. Your work force must also be protected from identity theft and other security breaches.
- Invest in secure software that will protect any electronic files containing private information that could at risk from hackers.
- Hire a shredding company that can provide a Certificate of Destruction for all destroyed documents. The same shredding company should be able to shred old electronics like hard drives that could be contain private information even after wiping them clean.
