Secure Mobile Shredding: Protecting Your Sensitive Information

Augusta Data Storage in 2002

With the increasing risk of data breaches and identity theft, protecting your business’s sensitive information is more crucial than ever. Implementing robust security measures throughout the document lifecycle is essential. By working with a trusted mobile shredding partner who understands the importance of security, you can ensure your business’s sensitive information won’t end up in the wrong hands.

What is Mobile Shredding?

Mobile shredding brings the shredding process to your business’s doorstep, eliminating the hassle and risks of transporting your sensitive documents to an off-site facility. Augusta Data Storage partners with your business to provide convenient, efficient, and secure data destruction. With our state-of-the-art shredding equipment housed in our mobile shredding truck, our trained professionals handle the secure destruction of your documents on-site. This approach ensures a safe and convenient way to irreversibly destroy physical documents, hard drives, and digital assets while adhering to strict compliance requirements and maintaining a short chain of custody.

Identifying Secure Information Types

Determining which documents to shred is a critical step in safeguarding sensitive data. Even unexpected documents like junk mail or old tax records can contain confidential information. It’s best to securely dispose of any document containing personally identifiable information, like contact or financial data. Some common documents you should shred include:

  • Financial documents and outdated tax records
  • Bills, bank statements, or junk mail
  • Outdated medical records, legal documents, or contracts
  •  Employee personnel files
  • Customer data or transaction history

These documents often hold sensitive information that can be exploited if it falls into the wrong hands. By identifying and shredding these documents, you significantly reduce the risk of breach and maintain compliance with relevant regulations. When in doubt, it’s best to shred. Secure document destruction enables you to treat protecting your business’s and customers’ personal information as a top priority.

Storing Secure Data Before Destruction 

Before the shredding process begins, properly storing sensitive data is essential. Augusta Data Storage provides secure document collection containers designed to hold confidential documents. These tamper-proof lockable bins are strategically placed throughout your premises, allowing for convenient collection and scheduled on-site pickup. By using these secure collection bins instead of easily accessible containers, you minimize the risk of unauthorized access and the exploitation of your sensitive information.

Mobile Shredding Process

Our mobile shredding services prioritize convenience, efficiency, and, above all, security. When you partner with Augusta Data Storage, our shred truck arrives at your location according to your schedule, volume, and destruction routine. Our professional team collects your documents from the secure collection containers and destroys them on-site, completing in minutes what would take hours to accomplish in-house. Equipped with industrial-grade shredders, our mobile shredding truck efficiently handles large volumes of documents and digital media, ensuring complete destruction.

Each shred job maintains a secure chain of custody, protecting your brand and ensuring the security of your data. To provide peace of mind, Augusta Data Storage supplies a Certificate of Destruction with each on-site shred job, guaranteeing that your documents were destroyed in compliance with industry standards. We strictly follow the guidelines set by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), and our NAID-AAA certification assures you that we operate with the highest standards of security. By partnering with a trusted shredding provider, you can confidently demonstrate your commitment to data protection.

Security Benefits of Mobile Destruction 

Mobile shredding offers several security benefits for your business:

Limited Chain of Custody

The limited chain of custody ensures that only authorized personnel handle your documents, minimizing the potential for unauthorized access. This ensures that your confidential information remains protected throughout the shredding process.

Transparent On-Site Destruction

By shredding documents on-site, you have full visibility over the process and can witness the destruction firsthand. This transparency guarantees that your data is securely and thoroughly destroyed. And since shredding takes place on-site, you eliminate the risk of a breach during transportation.

Consistent Shredding Routine

Additionally, mobile destruction enables you to establish a routine destruction schedule. Regularly shredding outdated documents and digital media ensures consistent and secure disposal of sensitive information, effectively mitigating the risk of breach. Augusta Data Storage works closely with you to develop a customized destruction plan tailored to your specific requirements and industry regulations.

Proof of Compliance

As a NAID AAA certified shredding provider, Augusta Data Storage is committed to the highest level of data security and privacy. We provide a Certificate of Destruction after every job, guaranteeing that your documents have been securely destroyed in compliance with data privacy regulations and best practices. In addition to providing you with peace of mind, your Certificate of Destruction provides you with legally binding evidence that your organization has taken all necessary steps to protect itself against data breach liability in the event of an audit or investigation.
