Secure destruction of records is now a necessity rather than luxury.
Recent increases in cases of identity theft and corporate liability have reinforced concerns over how confidential information is managed and destroyed both for individuals as well as businesses and organizations.
In addition to promoting best practices, securing records destruction fulfills an organization’s obligations under current legislation.
The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce and Island Document Storage and Shredding have joined forces in a shred-a-thon to help chamber members securely destroy unneeded sensitive documents. Personal records are also welcome.
The shred-a-thon takes place Oct. 18 from noon to 3 p.m. in the chamber parking lot, 2133 Bowen Rd.
Cost is a suggested donation of $8 per box.
