To SHRED or not to SHRED?
Once you allow information to leave your site – in the trash or in the hands of a Dallas recycling company – you’ve lost control. You have put yourself and your company at risk. Any kind of record – customer lists, inter office memos, payroll information, and much more – could be used to compromise your organizations security. In fact, under various Texas and federal privacy laws, if your personnel files or other types of records are disclosed to outside parties – even by accident – it could be grounds for a lawsuit.
