HIGHLY SECURE AND COST EFFECTIVE DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION
PRIVACY PROTECTION is at the forefront of the minds of individuals and businesses today. Identity theft is a concern of everyone.
Florida Document Shredding - FDS is a PRIVACY PROTECTION PROVIDER.
Recent legislation such as the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), Health Information Portability Act (HIPAA), and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (also known as The Financial Services Modernization Act ), have brought an increase in the awareness of the need to properly dispose of sensitive information before recycling. Shredding has become the recommended method for the handling of sensitive documentation.
Please note that on November 1, 2009, the amendment to FACTA, called the Red Flag Rule, will go into effect. Under this amendment, every organization “that holds any consumer account, or other account for which there is a reasonably foreseeable risk of identity theft” to develop what it calls “reasonable policies and procedures for detecting, preventing, and mitigating identity theft.”
The Red Flag Rule requires many businesses and organizations to implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program designed to detect the warning signs – or "red flags" – of identity theft in their day-to-day operations.
While all current data protection laws require organizations to have written data protection policies and procedures, the Red Flag Rule is specifically created to emphasize the importance regulators put on them.
