Document Destruction Micro Records

Regardless of your reasons for seeking out document destruction, here’s a little refresher on why you should add in these services for your business.

Document Destruction Protects Your Privacy

Regular shredding of personal, business, and transactional documents can protect your company from fraud. Likewise, it can also protect your employees and self from identity theft. When you have excessive paperwork piled up containing confidential information, it’s crucial to implement a shredding service to eliminate potential privacy breaches.

Save on Storage Space

Investing in shredding services can help your company save on important storage space. When you eliminate out-of-date documents that are no longer needed, you’re freeing up storage space within your filing cabinet for the latest paperwork that you need quick access to. Micro Records can also work with you to create alternative storage solutions so that you can ditch your file cabinet altogether. You can opt for economical hard copy storage within our storage facilities and use our scan-on-demand services for quick access to documents off-site.  

Maryland’s Data Protection Law

Under Maryland’s data protection law, any business that has access to personal information must dispose of it in a manner that protects against unauthorized disclosures. This is especially important for information that contains social security numbers, tax identification numbers, credit card information, health information, insurance, and so on. By investing in document destruction, your company can ensure that you’re following Maryland’s law accordingly.
