The other day we discussed on-site shredding services in Columbus and how they help keep your business' sensitive and confidential information safe from the competition. Having a regular service that comes to your company and shreds all your important waste documents right there on-site is critical to maintaining good document security. While on-site shredding services in Columbus are not a cure-all and cannot prevent all types of corporate espionage threats, they are a useful tool to make your information more secure.
I was reminded of how many stories there are right now of corporate espionage in the news. One story was about a Brookline, MA man who was caught trying to sell corporate secrets from the company he worked at (Akamai) to a foreign government. Fortunately, the foreign governement alerted our authorities and the man ended up providing information to an undercover FBI agent. You can read some of the initial reports on the story at the FBI's website here. This story demonstrates that corporate espionage is a real threat in today's marketplace and companies need to do their best to prevent it.
As I said, on-site shredding services in Columbus aren't a panacea, but there is no doubt that it will help improve your document security and make it much more difficult for criminals and/or disgruntled employees to take your information. As you set up your on-site shredding services in Columbus, make sure your looking at not only the threats from without, but also those from within. More on that in a later post.
