Document Destruction Security Considerations
Having a comprehensive and integrated information security program in place has never been more vital. According to statistics from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), identity theft is the fastest growing non-violent crime in the United States. In contrast to popular belief, statistical studies suggest that almost 75% of the information theft occurs through the traditional paper stream rather than by electronic means. Activities such as dumpster-diving remain the most common methods of personal identity theft and corporate espionage.
Legislation For Protecting Confidential Information
Identity theft not only affects the personal privacy of the America population: it affects all businesses, whether large or small, that retain personal information and trade secrets. Recently enacted privacy legislation has put the onus on organizations to ensure they are carrying out due diligence in protecting against unauthorized access to confidential information. The legislation is strict and hands out harsh civil and criminal penalties to companies that fail to destroy confidential information prior to disposal.

Vulnerability Of Security Breaches
It is literally impossible for businesses not to collect or possess confidential information. Meanwhile, competition is fierce, and corporate thieves are taking bolder steps to acquire proprietary information about their competition through corporate espionage. Corporations are vulnerable to data breaches now more than ever and need to take preventative action to ensure that all sensitive information in their possession is handled securely and professionally.
Protection Against Espionage & ID Theft
Identity theft and corporate espionage can cost thousands and thousands of dollars, and in some cases can even put companies out of business. Combine this with environmental concerns, the need for productivity improvements, and cost savings, and secure document management and destruction solutions become the most sensible solution. PROSCAN® Solutions comprehensive document management solutions, along with PROSHRED® Securities secure destruction services, are your best choice for preventing identity theft and corporate espionage.
