What Should I Shred?

Document Shredding in Boston

What documents should I shred in Boston?Once you allow information to leave your possession, whether it's by throwing it in the trash or putting it into the hands of a recycling company—you've lost control, and put yourself and your company at risk.

Any kind of record—customer lists, interoffice memos, payroll information, and much more can be used to compromise your organization's security. In fact, under various privacy laws, if your personnel files or other types of records are disclosed to outside parties—even by accident—it could be grounds for a lawsuit.
