Compliance with identity protection requirement
Most ID theft crimes are the result of information stolen from a single improperly handled document containing personal information. Federal and state legislation now requires all businesses to take reasonable steps to destroy or arrange for destruction of consumer records that contain personal information to ensure security.
Paper shredding and safe document destruction and disposal are no longer an option considering the rising identity theft crisis and the legal litigation burdens that ensue. Shred Now recognizes your obligation in meeting this compliance challenge. Several laws have been enacted to enforce safe document disposal and we are equipped to help you remain compliant.
Laws enacted to protect the privacy of businesses and individuals are such as:
FACTA (Fair and Accurate Transactions Act)
HIPAA (Health Insurance portability and Accountability Act)
Privacy Act of 1974
