A secure shredding program is an effective way to meet the compliance requirements of privacy and information disposal laws at the federal and state level. But developing a compliant, defensible information destruction program presents many challenges.

Most organizations lack the time or expertise to effectively design and implement a compliant program. In fact, many do not have clear shredding or information disposal policies to begin with, or they don’t have access to information for assessing employee compliance across different offices or locations.

And without the proper tools for monitoring a program’s value or effectiveness, a company can put itself in serious business risk or non-compliance.
