Throughout the nation, and in our areas of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast, including from North Palm Beach to Fort Pierce, it’s a battle every day to stay ahead of the identity thieves and dumpster divers as they continue to rob us of our sense of security and peace of mind. The right thing to do and always the most secure action to take is to destroy all confidential information that is not necessary for keeping longer than you should. Let’s start with those credit card offer letters that always appear in the mailbox. They seem so harmless but don’t leave them hanging around forever.  Shred them.  If you have them tucked away year after year, along with numerous other documents, then you will need your onsite shredding shredding/mobile shredding company to go to your location and shred those documents before they get into the wrong hands.  Here is a list of some other sensitive information you should shred: credit/debit card receipts, old tax records, insurance records, bank statements, cancelled checks, health records, financial documents, and all other documents with your social security number and driver’s license number. If there is no reason to keep these confidential documents—shred them. For the large and seemingly insurmountable pile of information that you have accumulated over the years, use a mobile shredding service.  It will be gone in no time.  Just double check that you really don’t need the information because when it is hoisted into the shred truck it is gone for good. The only way the paper is coming back to you is in the form of new paper products. Just remember that you cannot afford to throw your confidential information in the garbage and hope for the best and think nothing bad will happen.  SelectShred is here to help you conquer the clutter, achieve security, and shred those old documents. It is more economical and convenient than you think to have the sense of security and the peace of mind that you deserve.  All our friends from Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Stuart, Palm City, Jensen Beach,  Hobe Sound, Port Salerno, Jupiter, North Palm Beach, Jupiter Island, West Palm Beach, and Palm Beach Gardens, let’s get serious and shred all those old and unnecessary records. You cannot put a price on peace of mind.  Shred securely, shred frequently, and discard responsibly.

SelectShred wants to build a relationship with its customers and not just provide quotes.  We know that your budget is important but our interest is in finding out more about you so that we can blend your needs with our services.  We believe in customizing our services to fit your needs.  For example, if you have a large a number of boxes to shred, we know that budgetary constraints will apply more than if you only plan to shred 10 boxes.  Maybe, if we can talk to you, you may realize that you can benefit from on demand services rather than waiting months or years to cleanout multiple boxes for a one-time purge. This great purge process only encourages procrastination and a feeling of dread in contemplating the arduous task to be tackled. The proverbial can continues to be kicked down the road while shredding takes a back seat. Meanwhile, piles of sensitive information are hanging around the office or in storage for longer than it needs to be held.

Some documents need to be kept for a set retention period but most personal confidential information should be properly discarded in a timely manner.  A NAID AAA certified company can put you on a schedule that can help you avoid holding onto the confidential information in your custody for no longer than you need to keep it.  Government agencies that believe that they do not have to safeguard the confidential information because they deal with public information still run the risk of negative publicity if sensitive information is traced back to them because proper disposal procedures were not in place.  Proper document destruction procedures keep all of us safe from identity theft and keep the costs down for everyone when securing and discarding your sensitive documents become more than a one-time event. SelectShred invites all of Northern Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast, including Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, North Palm Beach, Hobe Sound, Stuart, Palm City, Port St. Lucie, Jensen Beach, and Fort Pierce to think outside the box and embrace the concept of scanning and the paperless office while still understanding that proper disposal of any confidential information will still be a top priority as we work on achieving that paperless office.

SelectShred also invites all businesses and individuals to keep an open mind and see what other options are available to you to safeguard the confidential information in your possession by not just receiving a quote but by having an open discussion about the benefits of forming a relationship with your document shredding company.

SELECTSHRED – THE OFFICE SHREDDER DILEMMA – PALM BEACH AND THE TREASURE COAST
By: richard , Categories: General News , Comments Off on SELECTSHRED – THE OFFICE SHREDDER DILEMMA – PALM BEACH AND THE TREASURE COAST

There is a time and place for everything and certainly the home/office shredder has a place in our lives sometimes. However, many companies would have us believe that their employees are lining up happily waiting to feed paper into an office shredder. The truth is that office shredders are a chore to use but a recurring shredding service is secure, economical, and convenient, while office shredders require maintenance and frequent replacement. Office shredders decrease productivity and decrease profitability, costing at least twice as much to use as a recurring mobile shredding service. It is more likely that employees are so busy with other assignments, shredding is not a priority and sits in piles around the office until one day when they get around to it. Office shredders are burning out and jamming with enough frequency to burn out the office staff. Office shredders provide no record of a compliant document destruction program but a NAID AAA certified company provides documentation if legal issues arise.

Remember that the shredded paper placed in plastic bags and thrown in the trash carry every bit of information you tried to destroy and you have no legal ownership of the trash – just ownership of the bad publicity due to misuse of information discovered in the dumpster. Also, it is easier to avoid large fines if you have a document security program in place that is compliant with federal regulations. SelectShred is not engaging in a war on home/office shredders but seeking to show that when security, economy, and convenience are of paramount importance, then outsourcing your shredding services are best for safeguarding the confidential information in your possession. Throughout Northern Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast, including Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Hobe Sound, Stuart, Palm City, Port St. Lucie, Jensen Beach, and Fort Pierce, SelectShred is ready to shred your confidential documents and issue a certificate of destruction for your record. Without a reputable shredding service, you have no record of compliance in case of an audit, complaint, or legal challenge.

SELECTSHRED-THE REAL REASON WHY PEOPLE SHRED VERSUS THE REAL REASON WHY PEOPLE SHOULD SHRED
By: richard , Categories: General News , Comments Off on SELECTSHRED-THE REAL REASON WHY PEOPLE SHRED VERSUS THE REAL REASON WHY PEOPLE SHOULD SHRED

SELECTSHRED-THE REAL REASON WHY PEOPLE SHRED VERSUS THE REAL REASON WHY PEOPLE SHOULD SHRED

SelectShred has noticed that a primary real reason why people shred is because they have run out of space in their businesses or in their residences. Throughout Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast, including from North Palm Beach to Fort Pierce, people are shredding because they no longer have room to store all of the boxes of paper that they have accumulated over many years. Another reason that has been given for shredding is that the file cabinet was so full that it fell over causing serious bodily injury and therefore hastened the need for the injured person to shred. SelectShred has been called on to shred for farms, RV companies, and theatres from Fort Pierce, Palm City, Jensen Beach, Hobe Sound, Port Salerno, Jupiter, and Palm Beach Gardens to create space for the accumulation of new documents with specific retention periods (period of time for which records must be kept).

The security and proper disposal of sensitive information are the real reasons for individuals and companies to shred. Security is of the utmost importance for shredding confidential documents to prevent identity theft and information theft. Sensitive information should never be kept for longer than necessary. Many businesses do not realize that other than the documents that are legally required to be held for a specific retention period, they are better off securing and disposing of all other materials in a timely manner. Storing important documents in multiple boxes around the office is far less secure than storing information in locked containers until properly disposed of by scheduled shredding. A document destruction program that is in place using locked consoles or bins until destroyed by SelectShred allows businesses to be compliant with federal regulations that govern their industry. In addition, the certificate of destruction issued by SelectShred provides documentation of a formal secure document destruction program required for regulatory compliance with HIPAA and FACTA.

The lessons to be learned here are to secure confidential information, shred frequently, and dispose responsibly. Avoid waiting for space to run out, bodily injury, or fines to dictate that you properly secure and dispose of all information. Having a secure document destruction program in place is an ongoing document security process and not a one-time event that is months or years in the making.

SELECTSHRED NEWS – APRIL 2013 SERVING STUART MARTIN COUNTY ST LUCIE COUNTY PORT ST LUCIE
By: richard , Categories: General News , Comments Off on SELECTSHRED NEWS – APRIL 2013 SERVING STUART MARTIN COUNTY ST LUCIE COUNTY PORT ST LUCIE

WHY YOU SHOULD OUTSOURCE YOUR SHREDDING SERVICES

When your business wants to ensure the utmost security for disposing of confidential information, outsourcing your shredding services is your best option. It is inefficient to have an employee feed an office shredder to destroy all of your confidential information.

Using a secure shredding service for your document destruction needs means that you are not relying on your busy staff to destroy in a timely manner your sensitive information. A recurring shredding service minimizes the lifetime of the confidential information in your custody.

A NAID AAA certified company can provide customized services whether you consider yourself a paperless office or a small office. A regularly scheduled service provides shredding services that ensures your daily  security and increases your productivity.

SelectShred’s NAID AAA certification means that the way SelectShred  conducts its business will help to keep your office compliant with federal regulations. Having locked containers to receive all documents to be shredded, having the shredding done at your location, and receiving a certificate of destruction from a NAID AAA certified company ensure the integrity of your document security and destruction program.

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU USE AN OFFICE SHREDDER

 

  • Office shredders are a chore to use but a recurring shredding service is secure, economical, and convenient.

 

  • Office shredders decrease productivity and profitability, costing twice as much to use as recurring shredding service.

 

  • Office shredders require maintenance and frequent replacement.

 

  • Office shredders provide no record of a compliant document destruction program if there is ever a legal challenge.

Shredded paper from the office shredder that is placed in plastic bags and thrown in the trash carries every bit of information that you tried to destroy, and you have no legal ownership of the trash — just ownership of the bad publicity due to misuse of the information found in the dumpster. Also, it is easier to avoid large fines if you have a document security program in place that is compliant with federal regulations.

DID YOU KNOW?

Federal laws such as HIPAA and FACTA require your business to protect the confidential information that you have in your custody. Also, the Federal Trade Commission imposes stiff penalties up to millions of dollars on companies that do not safeguard their consumers’ personal information.

SELECTSHRED NEWS MARCH 2013-WHY SHREDDING WITH AN OFFICE SHREDDER IS JUST NOT ENOUGH

WHY SHREDDING WITH AN OFFICE SHREDDER IS JUST NOT ENOUGH

The unfortunate incident of strips of shredded paper with discernible sensitive information floating around at the Thanksgiving Day parade in New York underscores the importance of using the proper equipment for shredding and the use of proper disposal procedures.  Many offices insist that they take care of their own shredding but they do not realize that pieces of shredded paper placed in the dumpster outside of their business can be reconstructed manually or by a computer program by someone intent on using that information for fraudulent purposes.  SelectShred uses a mobile industrial shredder to shred your sensitive documents at your location.  The shredded materials are mixed with many other shredded documents and recycled at the end of the day.  This procedure makes it impossible for your information to be reconstructed or traced back to your office.

SELECTSHRED NEWS MARCH 2013-PROTECT YOURSELF FROM DUMPSTER DIVING

Shred important documents instead of throwing in the trash.

Do not throw a Social Security, driver’s license or bank number in the trash.

Destroy old credit and debit cards as well as credit card approval letters so that the information is not legible.

Take the extra steps to make sure your personal information and your customers confidential information are properly disposed.

  SELECTHSRED NEWS MARCH 2013-OFFICE SHREDDER FACTS

Personal and small office paper shredders use strip-cut shredders or cross-cut shredders. Strip-cut shredders are the least secure and easily reassembled.   Cross-cut shredders are more secure and more tedious to reconstruct. SelectShred mobile shredder uses pierce and tear — a leading technique in the industry — to pierce the paper and tear it apart.
