What are the implications if your sensitive information fell into the wrong hands?
Are there criminal charges, fines and headlines in your trash?
Your waste containers may hold valuable company assets. Much more than useless trash, they may contain confidential health records, proprietary client information and priceless trade secrets that, if exposed, could result in loss of business, unfavorable publicity, and possible civil or criminal prosecution.
Due to many federal regulations and individual retention policies, secure document destruction is a must for any business today. It is imperative to properly dispose of your confidential and private paper records. Business Records Management provides complete solutions for records destruction.
BRM in Erie, PA and Johnstown, PA are both AAA-Certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) for high standards and ethics in the responsible destruction of confidential materials.
Business Records Management will pick up all confidential material and destroy it immediately in our on-site shredding trucks. Your Material is than taken out to our On-Site shredding truck and immediately shredded using a pierce and tear method producing cuts no bigger than 5/8” in size. This method is equivalent to a cross-cut technique. After being shredded the paper is compressed in the back of the truck were it is mixed with tons of other shredded documents making it impossible to retrieve any information from the documents.
All documents are picked up by a Business Records Management service representative, locked in our trucks, and then destroyed off-site at our secure shredding facility. Your Material is placed in locked containers on our locked box truck. They are then transported to our secure facility on the NorthSide of Pittsbugh. The locked containers are taken inside our building where they remain locked until they are ready for destruction. All destruction takes place on the same day.
