Scan It or Shred It?

Whether you are solely keeping track of your own personal information, or you are responsible for the proper disposal of your Fountain Valley business records, you need to know how to properly destroy anything confidential so it doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

Shredding your paperwork is an essential safeguard when running a business, and it's a good habit to get into in your personal life to make sure your private information stays out of the wrong hands. Certain documents need to be kept for years, while others can be trashed immediately. But before you throw away your precious information into an insecure dumpster, consider shredding your documents to unreadable pieces. The decision to sit down and shred piles of paperwork you have saved over the years can be a tough one, but this is where scanning becomes key.

People often struggle with the decision to destroy their personal documents, after all, it is an important document, and who knows if or when you will need to reference it again. If you find yourself in this situation and have stacks of records taking up valuable desk space, try scanning your documents before you shred them. This solution provides a perfect compromise. Electronic records can easily be stored securely if done correctly.
