Paper Shredders -- Protect your Business
Shredding protects your business..

Dumpster divimg
Believe it or not dumpster diving is still a highly effective way for criminals and competitors to gather confidential information about your business. It is surprising how much confidential business data ends up in the business trash. Some of the information found in corporate trash includes:

  • Bank information
  • Credit card numbers
  • Marketing studies
  • Vendor information
  • Customer list

Handwritten notes from meetings where highly confidential information are discussed also have the tendency to end up in the corporate trash through the careless action of employees. Let us not forget that thousands of paper with pertinent information gets tossed into the trash due to printer or copier jams. Last but not least thousands of Corporate CD-ROM, DVDs, floppy disks and other obsolete computer media are discarded regularly.

Shredding is your ultimate protection

The best way to ensure pertinent corporate information does not end up in the trash is by shredding them. Shredders cuts come in two primary types. The cross cut reduces shredded materials into confetti cuts and strip cuts shreds materials into tiny strips. Cross cut shredders offer a higher level of security than strip cut. Some shredders are also specially designed to handle CD-ROMS and DVDs as well.

Placing shredders at vantage points throughout the office or making them readily available to employees will increase the chances of their usage. Some of the best places to install shredders are in the copy room, near copiers or printers located in high traffic areas.

Shredders are an invaluable tool for protecting your organization against criminals and unscrupulous competitors. This makes the decision to invest in shredders a critical business decision. Choosing the right one can sometimes be a daunting task. Our knowledgeable Shredder Experts are standing by to answer your questions.

Shredders Help Prevent Identity Theft
The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) has teamed with Shredder manufacturers to offer people tips on how to prevent identity theft. Thieves can't steal what they can't read, so it can't be said enough-one of the most important steps you can take in preventing identity theft is to properly dispose of personal information so it doesn't end up in the wrong hands.

Experts agree that the best way to dispose of documents that contain your personal information is to shred them.NCPC strongly recommends using a cross-cut shredder. Unlike strip-cut models or other in which the pieces can potentially be put back together, cross-cut or confetti-cut machines produce smaller pieces that are more difficult to reassemble, which ultimately provides greater document security.

Things to consider before purchasing a shredder.

What will you be shredding?
There are many different types of shredders, and which shredder best meets your needs. Several of the items to consider are:

  • How sensitive is the material you need to shred?
  • What type of paper will you be shredding?
  • How often will you need to use your shredder?
  • Would you like one large shredder, or several smaller shredders?
  • How many sheets do you need to shred at a time?
  • What size of paper do you need to shred?
  • Is space/mobility an issue?

How sensitive is the material you need to shred?
Shredders cut paper into smaller, unrecognizable pieces of paper. Different shredders shred paper into different sizes of paper. The more important the document, the more important it is to use a shredder that will shred the documents into very small pieces.

What type of paper will you be shredding?
Paper comes in many different forms. Some paper is thicker and other paper is thinner, some paper is glossy and other sheets of paper are coarse. You will want to be sure your shredder can handle the paper you will be shredding.

How often will you need to use your shredder?
You will need to take into consideration how often you will be using your paper shredder. Some paper shredders are made only for shredding documents a few times per week, where other shredders can be used continuously. Purchasing a shredder that cannot handle the volume of shredding you need can be very frustrating.

Would you like one large shredder, or several smaller shredders?
Some offices will buy one large shredder for all their shredding needs, where other offices will purchase several smaller shredders and place them throughout the office.

How many sheets do you need to shred at a time?
Different shredders can shred different amounts of paper. Smaller shredders can only handle a few sheets of paper, where larger shredders can shred many sheets of paper at a time. Strip cut shredders can always shred more paper at a time than a cross cut shredder.

What size of paper do you need to shred?
Some shredders are designed to shred small letters, where other shredders can shred newspapers and phone books. You will want to take into consideration what you will need to shred now and what you will be shredding in the future.

Is space/mobility an issue?
Shredders can be very large and heavy. If you need to take a shredder from one office to another, you may want to get a lighter shredder or one with mobile casters. If space is an issue, you may want to consider a thinner shredder that can fit into a tight space.
