Why Should Financial Institutions Shred?

Shredding is one of the most effective methods when protecting sensitive information. That’s why financial institutions should shred all documents that contain personal or confidential information. Shredding papers can help prevent identity theft, fraud, and other crimes. Not only will shredding protect the customers’ information, but it will also help ensure the institution’s safety.

One-Time Shredding

One-time shredding is an effective way to protect confidential information and is integral to compliance with industry regulations. This service means businesses can shred all their documents at once without worrying about the cost or the hassle. As a result, one-time shredding is a convenient and cost-effective solution for businesses in the financial industry.

Scheduled Shredding

Scheduled shredding is an essential service for businesses in the financial industry. By shredding documents regularly, companies can protect themselves and their customers from various risks. Secure Document Shredding provides collection containers and shred carts to our regularly scheduled customers to ensure all paper documents are stored safely while waiting to be shredded.

Compliance

Financial institutions are responsible for protecting their customers’ data, ensuring that all sensitive documents are shredded and destroyed. Not only is this the right thing to do, but it is also required by law. Financial industries must comply with privacy legislation. Banks and other financial businesses are governed by laws such as Gramm-Leach-Bailey Act (GLBA) and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) in the USA. These laws are what help protect your client’s privacy and information. There may be severe repercussions if these conditions are not met.

What Documents Should Be Shredded?

Before shredding, the first thing to consider is whether or not the document contains sensitive information. Any documents that include account numbers, social security numbers, and any other personal information that could be used to steal your identity or commit fraud should be destroyed.

Also, review whether or not the document is required by law to be shredded. It includes things like tax documents and other financial records. In many cases, the organization will be necessary to keep these documents for a certain period before you can shred them.

What Documents Should Be Shredded?

  • All Discarded Copier
  • Copies
  • ATM receipts
  • Bank statements
  • Canceled and voided checks
  • Credit and charge card bills, carbon copies, summaries, and receipts
  • Credit reports and histories
  • Credit Cards (Expired)

What Documents Should Be Shredded?

Privacy laws require you have a Written Information Destruction Policy. Develop a plan and educate your employees. Once you decide which document destruction options will work best for you, create a shredding policy. Put it in writing so you can distribute it to your staff, have them read it, and sign a confirmation that they received and understand it.

Let the team know where security containerswill be located and that all paper documents will be disposed of. It would help if you also gave employees an annual refresher on your information destruction policy. Remember that new hires should be trained on the policy and sign a confirmation along with all other HR documents.
