In today’s world, no-one can be too careful about the destruction and disposal of sensitive information. The sad truth is that it is all too easy for a stranger to rifle through your garbage bins and obtain documents that contain highly personal information, such as bank account numbers, passwords, credit card numbers and other identifying information.
To make matters even more complex, we live in an age where a lot of this sensitive information is also retained on computers. This means that whenever a computer is upgraded, sold, or thrown away, the hard disks that contain the personal information are vulnerable to being stolen. Without proper destruction, the personal information on those hard disks can be retrieved intact in many cases through the use of special software.
Every year in the United States, around 15 million people have their identities stolen. This results in huge financial losses for those people involved and causes fear to spread throughout communities. This is exactly why we recommend that everyone ensure that their most sensitive information is shredded or otherwise destroyed.
We are proud to have been the first document destruction company in Alaska to receive NAID Certification. What this means is that we adhere to all processes and procedures outlined by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) to ensure that our destruction services meet strict information disposal standards.
NAID AAA certification also means that all of our employees have met strict employment screening processes to ensure that they can be trusted to handle your very personal and sensitive information. We don’t employ anyone with a criminal record; all of our staff follow stringent security protocols; personal documents and hard drives are only accessed by authorized personnel at any given time; and all of our employees follow strict chain of custody procedures when handling personal materials.
