Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/24/2012 -- Document shredding is sometimes required by law for regulatory compliance, such as in the medical field. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act also mandate the destruction of all documents and media containing information that may compromise business transactions and the parties involved, or the business itself.
Even without being duty-bound, paper shredding is considered vital to most businesses, considering that it prevents identity theft cases, of which 87% of data is acquired by dumpster diving and other low-tech theft methods. Another basic benefit of document shredding is that it clears up the area and provides extra space in a given location.
