Competition and Workplace Privacy
Protect trade secrets. Keep your private information private
Every employee around the globe produces confidential material daily - in every business. That's a lot of private
information. Add to that your customers information and you have a lot of confidential information at stake, including your own
trade secrets. The last thing you want in today's marketplace is for your competitors to have access to sensitive information, like your latest client proposal or annual budget.
Unfortunately, this happens every day in America. US corporations report annual losses of more than $45 billion
from the theft of trade secrets. Many people think of trade secrets being stolen by hackers, or shared with the wrong
through electronic channels. But we are still very much a paper society. We print out documents to proof or sign
and then, not
realizing their value to others, put them in the trash. Or, in an effort to be environmentally friendly, we put
the recycling bin. And that leaves reports, memos and budgets out there for all to see.
A document destruction program ensures that all your corporate information is completely destroyed. And it fulfills your
desire to be environmentally friendly, since all shredded paper is recycled into consumer products.
Shred-it's secure chain of custody ensures that your private materials, and your trade secrets, are protected, and our
locked security consoles keep materials safe from inquiring eyes.
When it comes to trade secrets, the fewer people handling your confidential documents, the better. And the people who
do handle it should be screened, certified professionals who understand how to keep confidential information
