Wouldn’t it be great if the best shredding company around catered to Lake Tahoe businesses and residents? How would you know it was the best? You could start by asking these simple questions:
Are they familiar with and do they follow compliance laws?
Identity theft crime has increased considerably over the years, requiring businesses to adhere closely to several privacy laws and regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), and the Gramm Leach Bliley (GLB). Whoever you choose to shred your documents needs to ensure they are compliant with these laws.
Are they NAID AAA Certified?
When an i-SIGMA member shredding company is awarded NAID AAA Certification, you know they comply with all known data protection laws and use industry-leading best practices.
Do they offer a variety of shredding services?
Do they offer both on- and off-site shredding? Can you walk in and drop off your shredding at their location? More options mean you can match their services with your shredding needs and budget.
Are their staff background checked?
The staff handling your sensitive documents need to be trained, background-screened, and trustworthy. You want the people transporting and shredding your documents to be knowledgeable on all privacy laws and be industry experts.
Do they recycle?
You want to do your part in preserving the environment and you expect your shredding company to do the same. A ton of paper recycled will save 17 trees and keep paper out of landfills where it generates methane, a damaging greenhouse gas. Does the shredding company you’re considering recycle all the shredded paper they generate?
Do they offer a Certificate of Destruction?
When a reputable shredding company supplies a Certificate of Destruction, they complete the chain of custody and provide you with proof that your files have been destroyed and you have complied with information privacy laws.
Lake Tahoe is a beautiful place to live and to do business. When you need a reputable shredding company, go local!
