In South Carolina and across the country, laws state that anything that has been disposed of in a dumpster is fair game for whomever may choose to take it. Consider your company and the multitudes of documents that contain the personal information of hundreds and thousands of people. It doesn’t take a lot of work in this day and age to get credit cards and make purchases pretending to be someone else. Thousands of lives each year are devastated by identity theft, a crime involving taking over someone else’s personal information such as social security numbers, for financial crimes. Shredding secure papers and documents is the safest and most successful way to keep these identify thefts from continuing to happen.
Considering the sheer amount of papers passing through law, health practices, schools, and other private offices it is vital to have these documents shredded and disposed of by professionals. The laws protecting the privacy of individuals make complying with regulations to destroy secure data a legal issue as well.
