How Secure Shredding’s Services Keep Businesses Safer During the Holiday Season
When the holiday season draws near, it’s all too common to see a rise in identity theft. An increase in online shopping drives those numbers, but another key source of identity theft exists offline. When documents aren’t disposed of properly, it can create a treasure trove of information for identity thieves. Information such as credit card numbers, phone numbers, addresses, and even social security numbers become vulnerable. Additionally, documents containing confidential company information and trade secrets could also fall into the wrong hands. And the sad part is, this kind of identity theft is often easily preventable. Secure Shredding is dedicated to keeping businesses, employees, and clients safer with mobile shredding, drop-off shredding, and hard drive destruction services. Learn how our document destruction services could offer protection against identity theft. And find out why a growing number of Tampa businesses trust Secure Shredding with their document shredding needs.
What Makes Document Destruction Especially Important During the Holiday Season?
Historically, identity theft cases see a significant rise during the holiday season. One of the primary reasons for this is that there’s a greater opportunity for these crimes to go unnoticed during the holiday period. With many people distracted by work, making purchases, and traveling, it’s easier for thieves to stay under the radar with all the other activity going on. According to Experian, approximately one in four Americans will become victims of identity theft this year. Unfortunately, some thieves will take it upon themselves to go dumpster diving in the search for confidential information that may make it possible to steal a person’s identity.
How Can Secure Shredding Safeguard Against Identity Theft?
Naturally, as businesses accrue confidential information both for themselves and their clients, this information presents a potential liability. No business wants to enable identity thieves to strike themselves, their employees, or those they serve. However, if these documents are not disposed of properly, that is exactly what can happen. This is why it is crucial to have these documents and storage drives disposed of by professionals.
