Identity theft is a huge and growing problem for individuals and businesses, large and small. In fact, according to the National Crime Prevention Council, identity theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the U.S. 

Businesses are entrusted with all types of confidential information from credit information or medical records to corporate trade secrets. Each business needs to do their part to prevent identity theft by safeguarding this information. It’s not only good business practice it’s the law. FACTA (Federal and Accurate Credit Transactions Act) and HIPAA are two of the many recent laws aimed at protecting consumer and company privacy.

Regular shredding – a smart policy To help your company minimise the risk of liability, consider developing a shredding policy. The shredding of business documents is a good business practice to include in your company’s risk management plan. A well though out and executed shredding programwill save your company valuable resources, time and money. What should be shredded to protect your privacy?
