Shredding : The Right Way!

    • SHRED on a regular schedule

Sporadic shredding can be misconstrued as suspicious.

    • Use your shredding contractor for ALL of your shredding.

If some documents go to your shredding contractor on a regular basis, and others are shredded outside of that process, it may draw attention to that activity.

    • Treat all documents equally…SHRED everything.

Isolating special records for destruction could lead to the conclusion that those documents were treated differently for the wrong reason. NEVER let some records go in the trash, while others are shredded.

    • Have a destruction policy.

Destruction policy should state the what, why, when, and how of your destruction practices, having a stated policy will minimize any hint of impropriety.
