Tax season is the busiest time of year for accountants and CPA firms. Not surprisingly, they tend to generate more documents and sensitive information during this time period. Although for many clients, their main priority is receiving the highest tax refund, it is equally important to make sure their confidential tax documentation is being managed and disposed of correctly.
The best thing to do is to call the professionals. AAA NAID(National Association for Information Destruction) certified companies can help provide you with the necessary services to ensure all client information is managed and disposed of properly. Whether your business goes with on or offsite shredding, it is essential that you take the necessary precautions to guarantee confidential documents are destroyed in accordance with all of today’s rules and regulations.
With constant changes and updates to privacy legislation, the best way to securely and compliantly destroy documents is clearly to hire a trusted NAID certified company rather than handle it internally.
Document shredding and recycling will completely destroy your confidential information to ensure your identity is not compromised. Temporary lockable security containers can be provided to hold documents until their destruction for convenience.
Mismanagement of sensitive information can lead to identity theft or a breach. According to Fortune Magazine, data breaches now cost about $4 MILLION dollars on average. From cradle to grave documents should be managed in a compliant manner. Rather than being reactive in the case of a breach or identity theft, proactively consolidating your document management, storage, and destruction will save you money in the long run. Call Citadel Information Management today to get compliant with all of the laws and regulations your business falls under.
