Document Destruction Security Considerations
The secure destruction of your information is our only business. It is a process that we take very seriously.
For Businesses, information about your company, employees and your customers must be protected. Not only is it a good policy but it’s the law. Keep compliant with current legislation using ECOSHRED’s proven confidential shredding services. We also provide data destruction services for electronics and hard drives.
ECOSHRED follows stringent industry proven procedures to make sure your information is completely destroyed. Our employees are bonded, insured, background checked as well as drug tested. All employees sign a confidentiality agreement assuring that they will keep all customer data and information confidential under penalty.
Confidential Shredding Chain of Custody
ECOSHRED follows a strict chain-of-custody procedure which is stringently followed. From the moment the material leaves your facility it is securely locked and monitored at all times until it is completely destroyed.
ECOSHRED provides you with containers that remain locked at your facility and can only be opened by our security professionals.
Our security professional comes to your site and unlocks your console, emptying the bag into one of our locked, rolling containers. Locked bins will be transported to one of our trucks. The bins are secured in our eco-friendly truck and locked. This begins the fully auditable and trackable chain of custody for shredding your documents and data.
Certificate of Destruction
Your confidential information is shredded, made indecipherable then hydro pulped and recycled. A Certificate of Destruction is generated, documenting and verifying that your sensitive materials have been destroyed.
