When it comes to security, destruction of your records may be the most important part of the document life cycle. While your records are within your physical custody and control, you have at least some say over who can access them and what happens with the information they contain. Once they leave your possession, however, anyone who finds them can do whatever they wish with the data, and there’s not much you can say or do about it.
Important points to keep in mind:
- You’ll be held responsible for any breach of confidentiality
- A breach could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars or more
- Breaches can be reported by anyone, using just a simple form
That’s why ensuring your records are completely destroyed before disposal is so critical—failing to do so could cost you your business and then some.
And that’s why Gateway Records Management offers a full range of professional and secure shredding services. We protect your records before and during destruction, and we protect you afterward by issuing you a Certificate of Destruction that satisfies your compliance reporting requirements.
Whether you’re planning a one-time shred project or have an ongoing need, we’ll be happy to help—it doesn’t matter whether you’re bringing the records to us, or we’re bringing the shredders or containers to you. We’ll even teach your staff how to meet your compliance requirements.
