Of course not. Hopefully, the majority of individuals from business owners to blue collar workers are now aware of the ever-increasing security threat when it comes to digital documents, hard drives, and computer files. This is a change from when Green Office LLC first came into existence not so long ago.
Over 10 years ago, Jeff J. Horn and his law partner, Jay Turnbach, decided to start a paper shredding company to answer their growing paper problem. At that time, digital security and secure document destruction services were still relatively unheard of. As we developed our roots in paper shredding solutions, we quickly saw where the world was heading and added secure document destruction for other materials beyond shredding documents to our services.
Paper shredding solutions remain a large portion of our business today for obvious reasons. For starters, about 43% of all security breaches are the result of physical mean. On top of that, Americans use approximately 4 million tons of copy paper every year and a lot of that is used for secure or potentially sensitive information/records.
Like any good business, Green Office had to evolve with the times. As computer and technology use has risen to new heights, it might be that our electronic destruction services that will eventually outpace our paper shredding solutions.
When our mobile destruction units arrive at your business or location, not only will they securely shred all the paper documents and records you have, but they also can handle the proper electronic destruction of things like hard drives. Once these are placed in a locked compartment in the trucks that only the destruction specialist has access to, it will be destroyed in a safe manner.
Identity fraud is a serious problem that affects millions of Americans every year. Leaving sensitive documents/information out there in the world greatly increases the chances of it happening to you. Approximately 57,868,922 records were put at risk in 2013 alone. A combination of paper shredding solutions and secure electronic destruction is the best way to ensure it doesn’t happen to you.
