Any entity, be it a business, institution, or not-for-profit organization, large or small, that discards private and proprietary data without the benefit of complete and secure document destruction risks exposure to criminal and civil prosecution.

Careless disposal of information could provide your competition with valuable information. Shredding is the most reliable and economical way to keep your unwanted and obsolete records from being read by the wrong people.

“Your company must be careful not to walk into situations where your trade secrets are carelessly or unwittingly disclosed to the public. Even an unintentional disclosure could potentially disqualify your legal right to claim protection for your trade secrets in court. The legal implications are drastic since the property becomes freely available to the general public.” (The Trade Secrets Handbook; Dennis Unkovic, Esq., Prentiss-Hall, Inc. New York, NY, 198)
