Improve Security Levels for Your Business
If you enter any office, there’s a good chance you’ll notice at least one blue bin almost immediately. Whether situated by the printing/copier machine, beside each desk or in the lunchroom, blue bins are in virtually ever business, and with good reason. Recyclables need to be disposed of properly and therefore shouldn’t be ignored, but the biggest question is: are these containers being used the way they should be? More often than not, confidential files make their way to these bins due to pure convenience and ease. The issue here is that documents are left unprotected and vulnerable to getting lost and/or stolen.
Think about the amount of records you generate, store, and circulate on a daily routine; you can bet that the majority of these records contain confidential, private matters. It is far too risky to dispose of this information without first having them thoroughly shred.

Tips to Improve Security Levels
Focus on establishing a work environment that is based on maintaining 100% security over sensitive business data. Success begins with top-down dedication from managers, so it’s crucial to reiterate this policy and set a good example.
Consider a ‘shred-all’ policy for the most effective and reliable form of proper disposal habits. This is a very simple process that reminds your employees on the importance of securing confidential business records that no longer serve a purpose. You will save a great deal of money and time with this policy as you won’t be forced to determine what is deemed private and what isn’t. Save your employees this unnecessary hassle and shred everything.
Carry out security audits regularly to determine where your business processes could use some attention or changes.
