IDENTITY THEFT AND PRIVACY WERE JUST
THE BEGINNING. NOW IT’S BECOME A
LEGAL MATTER.

Privacy is so easily compromised. Anyone passing by a recycle bin, a dumpster, a hotel lobby wastebasket is able to glean more information than one would expect.  As a result, the government has instituted laws to protect the private information of customers, employees, patients and clients.  These laws require companies to shred documents or face penalties.

The minute you start doing business with customers or hire an employee, there is an implied contract to protect information based on the fact you’ve collected data from them.  In some industries, like health care and financial services, there are laws that demand all this data be shredded.
