So what is the effective solution? Outsourced document shredding

Outsourcing your shredding is a comprehensive solution for the below reasons-

1.    Prevents internal security breach

As said prior, 65% of the security breach cases happen due to unwanted people (often among the internal employees) gaining access of important business documents. Hence, it is well done than said: Outsourced document shredding prevents the handling of documents by any internal employee. Therefore, there is no chance of any internal security breach.

2.    Did you know that in-house shredding can be 52X costlier than outsourced shredding?

Other than such a large gap in pricing, in-house shredding has further risks like-
  • There are fair chances of legislative and security risks by doing shredding yourself
  • There is large quantity of mess accumulated which only takes huge time and money to clean it up which could have been easily allocated towards more productive causes for business growth.
