Many people like to personally dispose of their sensitive information to make sure it is done properly. This is why personal shredding machines are so popular.
Unfortunately, the hard truth most people don’t realize about personal shredding machines is that they can actually pose a security risk to your company and squander valuable time that you could spend working on other areas of your business.
The Security Risks of Personal Shredders
You’ve all seen the movies or crime shows where someone pieces together a shredded document containing sensitive information. Unfortunately, this isn’t just something that happens on the T.V screen.
The long vertical strips left over after using a personal shredder can be easily re-assembled and pose a security threat to your business. In fact, many computer software programs are specifically designed to reconstruct these strips of paper back into the original comprehensive document.
Western Archives implements crosscut technology into their shredding services. This means that the documents they destroy are impossible to reconstruct no matter what computer software you put up to the task.
Personal Shredders Drain Time And Resources from Your Business
Law firms, accounting offices, and many other businesses have a large volume of documents that must be disposed of on a regular basis. If you are using a personal shredder to take care of document destruction, the process can become agonizingly slow and expensive.
This is because personal shredders can only destroy a few pieces of paper at one time. This means that you will need to station a paid employee next to the shredder for hours on end, mindlessly feeding company documents into the overworked shredder.
