Confidential On-Site Paper Shredding
Eventually, even legal documents lose their value and become obsolete. Keeping such records indefinitely is costly and may expose your clients to unnecessary risks—risks that can be avoided through a sound document destruction strategy.
Regulatory compliance and increased emphasis on ethical conduct and accountability demand that you safeguard your clients’ privacy and administrative records in accord with the following legal requirements:
- FACTA – The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) has a provision regarding the “proper disposal of consumer information.” It requires the “shredding, pulverizing, or burning of papers containing consumer information” so that personal information cannot be read or reconstructed.
- Economic Espionage Act – The EEA regards the security of trade secrets. It makes the theft of “all forms and types of financial, business, scientific, technical, economic, or engineering information” from a company a criminal offense. A company or firm is only protected by EEA if it can show that it took all reasonable measures to protect its information.
- Sarbanes Oxley Act – Also known as SOX, was enacted in 2002, this act says that paper and electronic records must be kept for five years. It also requires that public companies disclose and evaluate their internal controls. This means that an internal document retention and destruction policy is crucial.
- U.S. Patriot Act – The Patriot Act says that companies are required to provide ready access to documents. A carefully adhered-to document retention and destruction policy is critical to staying in compliance with the Patriot Act.
TrueShred provides secure shredding solutions for the legal profession. We help ensure regulatory compliance and a proper audit trail for all destroyed client records by issuing a Certificate of Destruction to your legal practice following each service visit.
