Buy a Paper Shredder
Shredding papers that contain private information will help you protect your identity. As cases of identity theft and data breaches continue to rise in St. Petersburg and across the U.S., several laws, including FACTA, have been created dictating how companies handle the private information of customers and employees.
Whether you are dealing with personal information or private business information, document shredding will help ensure you don’t let confidential material fall into the wrong hands.
Shredding services offer a comprehensive solution for organizations that produce large volumes of paperwork that contain sensitive information. For an affordable rate, hundreds of pounds of paper can be picked up and securely shredded.
However, if your office doesn’t produce large volumes of sensitive paperwork, shredding services may not be your answer. Because it’s still important to thoroughly destroy confidential paperwork, purchasing your own personal or office shredder may be your best option.
Choosing a Paper Shredder
The first thing you’ll need to do when selecting a paper shredder is to evaluate your needs.
- How long do you want your shredder to last?
- How much space can you dedicate to your shredder?
- Is noise level a factor you need to consider?
- How many sheets will you want to shred at a time?
- Do you need a shredder than can handle staples, clips, or cardboard?
- How small do you want the shredded bits to be?
Once you have a better idea of how you will be using your shredder, you can determine what features your shredder will need.
If you are considering purchasing your own paper shredder, it is vital to do research. Select a shredder that can handle your needs and won’t break down or jam easily. Destroying confidential documents is crucial to avoid identity theft—make sure you choose a shredder that can get the job done.
