Good points Scott.
Shredding services are helpful for companies with large amounts of documents, such as a health insurance company where almost every piece of paper needs to be destroyed. There is one big problem though – that is with the containers that hold the documents prior to collection. They are often very insecure, sometimes with inexpensive locks, or with no locks at all. Cleaning crews and other employees will have access to them.
On our TSCM inspections we have often found bulk document containers with openings so wide you can almost get your hand in. One could easily use a simple extension tool to reach the papers. On one occasion we could see the documents and easily photograph right through the opening – credit card numbers were clearly visible on the top pages.
So for any person or office that handles truly confidential docs (read: you don’t want employees to get their hands on them), we always recommend to invest in a personal shredder. You can still dump those shreds into the bulk destroyer box if you wish.
