Identity theft and unauthorized disclosure of private information has reached epidemic proportions. According to the Better Business Bureau, last year alone this crime claimed more than 15 million victims. But information theft is not just something that affects consumers. The FBI estimates that information theft costs American businesses as much as $50 Billion in losses each and every year.
With over 50 federal laws mandating that all businesses, healthcare facilities and financial institutions protect the confidential information of their customers, clients and patients, it is imperative that you establish a shredding program. Failure to do so can expose your organization to severe fines, bad publicity and lost business.
