Information Security & Destruction Services for Accountants

As a financial professional, you help manage the economic engines of business. With open access to the financial underpinnings of your clients’ business's, you can uncover insights that will lead them to greater financial stability and fiscal success.

Ultimately, your businesses success depends on providing service and performance that is built on a foundation of privacy, confidentiality, and information security.
Despite the importance of privacy, up 14% of information breaches have occurred in the finance and insurance industries.1 And while much focus and many resources have been placed on digital security, little thought goes towards the thousands of pages of confidential documents that get printed every year by every firm.
That’s where we come in. As experts in paper shredding and hard drive destruction, we know a thing or two about document management and workplace privacy.

Protect your firm. Get Shred-it.

“We have the best cyber-security. It can’t happen to us.”

The industry’s increased focus on digital or cyber security tends to ignore the equally dangerous risks posed by paper documents and irresponsible document management.
When financial forecasts or year-end results are printed for a meeting or when reports or agendas are circulated for review, they put your firm at risk for an information breach because most employees drop them in the trash can or the recycling bin. But both put you at risk.

Insider involvement accounted for 58% of all breaches in 2016.2

Over half of the risk for a breach comes from inside your organization. Key to your on-going information security is that your employees know how to identify, handle, and securely dispose of confidential information, especially when it is in paper form.
If employees are only choosing between trash can and recycling bin, you’re at risk. Only 100% document destruction and secure recycling is safe.

“Professionalism, prompt responses, polite personnel. I also appreciate that Shred-it insists that their service of shredding docs be done according to strict guidelines - no room for devising ways that make the job easier for themselves/personnel at the expense of the client. This business of managing disposal of data is serious and should always be taken as so.” Bowen Hunsaker & Co, CPA

“I used to burn out my own office shredding machines and required hours of staff support. Third party service from Shred-it solved the problem.” Eric Phillips, CPA

“I like the set schedule of pick up dates the most. Drivers are always courteous and helpful.” Riggs & Associates, CPAs, P.C.
