At FileSave Imaging, we are all about making things easier for you. We are also about keeping your information safe. When transferring your files to the digital world, we provide the most secure processes and procedures to be sure your information stays safe. However, what do you do with the paper documents that have now been transferred? You can’t just throw them away because that puts you or your business at risk for theft.
Identity theft encompasses a wide variety of theft both online, in person and from a distance. Did you know identity theft is the misuse of any of your personally identifying information including: your name, Social Security number, credit card numbers, and any other financial account information. There are a variety of ways in which thieves can get your information. Here is a breakdown of a few of the ways:
Phishing – If you haven’t heard the term, you’ve probably heard of what it is. Thieves pretend to be companies online and send spam or pop-up messages in which you fill out personal information and then they use that information to gain further access.
Stealing – Stealing isn’t about getting a few dollars, or pawning jewelry anymore. Thieves take your address, bank cards and anything else they can find in your wallet or purse, and do whatever they can to steal your account information and identity.
Dumpster Diving – Rummaging through trash looking for bills, or other paper with your personal information on it can give a lot more to a thief than you might imagine. That’s why it’s vital that you don’t throw your documents away.
So, you definitely don’t want to throw the documents away, and you can’t shred them because it’s too time consuming. Here’s where we make things even easier. FileSave Imaging offers a document destruction service. Once our project is complete, and all of your files have been transferred, we will destroy the paper documents, and we’ll do it at a great rate. What could be easier than that?
