Heightened Security Fuels Shredding Industry
Heightened privacy security measures in the medical field and efforts to prevent identity theft in other business sectors have fueled growth in the company's shredding department.
According to Robert Johnson, founder and executive director of the National Association for Information Destruction Inc., shredding has become a $1.2 billion dollar industry. Although NAID has 500 active members, the market may include more than 1,500 companies. In addition to that, a mix of record storage companies also offer shredding services, so it is hard to get a valid number.
"The industry is growing about 25 percent a year and has held steady at that rate for the last three years and I think it will stay there for a while." - Robert Johnson.
Key Items to Consider When Selecting a Document Destruction Service
- Does the prospective vendor meet and exceed all of the requirements related to HIPAA? For example: do they have their employee's background checked and drug tested?
- Is the company an active member of the National Association of Information Destruction (NAID)? If not, how do they keep up with all the current security concerns and knowledge of the industry?
- Does the vendor have his employees bonded against employee dishonesty and theft?
- What is the vendors service record? For example, how long have they been in business? Have they experienced any negative incidents?
- Does the company have the capable equipment for your volume? Also, will they be able to handle emergency pickups, or extra pickups, or large purges and clean outs?
- Like many industries, the document destruction industry is under mass consolidation. Ask your prospective provider what their long-term plans are. For example, the company you reach an agreement with may not be the same company you do business with months later (national chains).
- Witnessing - Could you send your representatives to the vendor's site to witness destruction/shredding activities?
- Does the vendor have policies and procedures to securely transfer your documents to the shredding site?
