Confidential Document Shredding
Why do you care that IMS provides confidential document shredding?
1. Is your office full of boxes or file cabinets stuffed with paper and you need the space?
2. Are you worried about keeping your customers’ or employees’ information secure and can’t just simply dump their files in the trash?
3. Do you want to be a better steward for our environment and recycle your paper?
4. Are you the boss and prefer your employees spend their time productively vs. standing at a paper shredder? Or are you the one tired of shedding paper?
If you answered yes to any (or all) of the above, here’s a little bit about IMS’s routine and purge shredding service.
We can help you do a one-time purge or set up a routine shred collection service. For a purge, we can come to you and make all that paper disappear.
Or, for ongoing service, we can leave a locked container where employees can place unneeded paper that contains confidential information. Our certified personnel will pick up the console on a regular schedule that suits your needs.
Either way, here’s what happens next: the material is unloaded in our secure facility and mingled with documents from other clients, then pulverized and baled. We then ship the paper waste to a contracted mill for recycling in a secure, closed-loop system.
Still have concerns about the security of our system? We also issue certificates of destruction, which serve as your proof of secure destruction.
In fact, all of our solutions and procedures are Triple A certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), the professional organization which governs our business.
Secure Document Shredding
So much attention these days is focused on electronic communications and IT security that physical security is often overlooked. In the government, medical, legal and financial sectors, for example, lots of highly sensitive information is still being processed on paper.
As an example, the risk of personal information like social security numbers being stolen from government offices decreases by using our document shredding services, as well as private information contained on student records by using our secure document shredding service.
IMS complements its document shredding service with its document scanning and records management services. Learn more about how IMS can help you reduce your paper trail without losing access to a single record. If you’re not comfortable with IMS scanning your documents, we also offer software solutions so you can scan them at your place of business.
Simply throwing away confidential files and information puts you and your clients’ personal information at risk as well as making you vulnerable to potential legal action. Our document shredding services safeguard against someone willing to dig through dumpsters or unguarded paper drops. There are far too many instances of discarded confidential documents blowing out of open trucks, outdoor bins, and other unsecured locations. Through our document shredding service, IMS helps you minimize the risk of a paper security breach. For businesses in mid-Missouri and surrounding locations such as Kirksville, Macon, Moberly, Hannibal, and Lake of the Ozarks, shredding documents with IMS is safe and convenient.
IMS System for Document Shredding
IMS delivers secure shred consoles or carts to your office for placement of your confidential documents and then picks up the contents for destruction on a regular schedule that suits your needs. Should you need a larger purge, we can also pick up your end-of-year documents that have reached their retention date or any other sensitive information that needs to be destroyed.
After pickup, IMS co-mingles your documents with documents from other clients at our secure facility and are then pulverized and baled, to ensure HIPAA compliance. IMS then ships the paper waste to a contracted paper mill for recycling in a secure, closed-loop system. A certificate of destruction is issued and will serve as your proof of secure destruction.
