Why Shred?

According to the Better Business Bureau, in one year alone this crime claimed more than 8.9 million victims.  Identity theft and unauthorized disclosure of private information has reached epidemic proportions.  The information theft is not only something that affects consumers. The FBI estimates that information theft costs American businesses as much as $24 Billion in losses each and every year!

With over 40 federal laws mandating that all businesses, healthcare facilities and financial institutions protect the confidential information of their customers, clients and patients, it’s imperative that you establish a shredding program. Failure to do so can expose your organization to severe fines, bad publicity and lost business.
