Confidentiality is important to every business. But for some, it’s essential.
A secured shredding process will help you remove clutter, reduce storage requirements and protect the confidentiality of your business and your customers. If you work in the financial, legal or healthcare industry, you face serious regulatory oversight for your documents and data – and secured shredding will help you stay in compliance.
AST is proud to partner with ShredIt, the leading service provider of shredding and data destruction services.
Secure Document Shredding
Papers are overflowing everywhere. Clean up is long overdue. But you can’t just toss it out. Not if you want to protect your privacy and the confidentiality of your customers. Shredding is the answer – with a secured process in a secured facility.
Secure Data Destruction
In this day and age, paper documents only represent a portion of your data. You also need to pay just as much attention to your electronic files. That means data destruction of unused hard drives, CDs and other media.
Records Management & Storage
Of course, not everything needs to be shredded or destroyed. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of organizing and storing your data for easy and accurate retrieval. We can store your data in our secure off-site facility with easy access to your data at any time.
Purging & Recycling
Not every file or document needs to be shredded. Sometimes you just need to de-clutter … to purge your desks and file cabinets from an overflow of paper. Our large, portable purge and recycling bins can be placed strategically throughout your building.
Consumer protection and privacy are high on the list of regulatory concerns. If you handle medical records, legal files or financial documents, you should be aware of both federal and state regulations and what it takes to comply with those regulations.
The vast majority of our shredding assignments are handled offsite – at our secured shredding facility.
If you already have your documents collected, we will take them as they are and bring them back to our facility for shredding. You will receive a Secure Chain of Custody document for your records.
We can also provide you with locked 65-gallon shredding bins to be distributed around your facility. When they are full, we will pick them up and have them shredded at our facility. You will receive a Certificate of Destruction and a Secured Chain of Custody document.
On-Demand vs. Scheduled Shredding & Purging
If you are planning a move, we can schedule a one-time collection of your confidential documents for shredding, and all other documents and files for purging.
But we also provide this as an ongoing service – by providing locked shred bins and purge bins to be distributed throughout your facility. Then we can schedule a pick up that makes sense for your volume.
Secure Chain of Custody Protocols
At the heart of secure shredding is the application of our chain of custody protocol to ensure your documents never get into the wrong hands. Our end-to-end tracking includes:
- Barcode scan at every touchpoint
- Locked trucks and secure totes keep documents safe in transit
- GPS-tracked fleets
- Secure, monitored facilities
