The government requires rigorous privacy laws due to identity theft and fraud. Almost any document with a name and address on it must be destroyed after a certain period of time.
Identity theft is the fastest-growing crime in the USA, according to the National Crime Prevention Council. As many as 9 million Americans have their identities stolen each year and each will spend an average of $1,495 and over 600 hours getting his or her finances straightened out (not including lawyers’ fees!)
Avoid the hassle, frustration and hours of work trying to fix the situation by hiring Cutters to shred all personal and confidential information in a legal and safe manner on-site at your location.
Compliance with Laws
The law states that if you employ just one person — a nanny, a housekeeper, home health care worker — and you have their personal information, you must “destroy” the information before you throw it away.
More than 40 federal laws require that all businesses, healthcare facilities and financial institutions protect their clients’ confidential information. All of these laws essentially recommend secure document destruction that companies such as Cutters Document Destruction offers.
