Paper Shredding

Shred for all the right reasons! MRK Group Ltd provides document destruction services.  The vast majority of organizations SHRED - FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASONS:

  • To PROTECT their customer’s privacy and prevent IDENTITY THEFT
  • To OBEY LAWS, requiring shredding
  • To PROTECT their employee’s privacy
  • To PROTECT their company and shareholders by safeguarding proprietary trade information

Shredding Facts:

  • IDENTITY THEFT and information-based fraud are the fastest growing crimes in the US
  • The US Supreme Court ruled that you give up ownership of information when it is casually discarded
  • Because of new laws, investigative reporters are increasingly looking to the dumpster as a source of “easy to find” headlines

Why shred?

Your organization must comply with the laws and regulations, requiring that it protect certain information when it is discarded.

An increasing number of laws actually require organizations to shred or face stiff penalties.

At the Federal level, HIPAA (healthcare) and Gramm-Leach-Bliley (financial) require specific physical safeguards, such as shredding, to meet compliance.  Stiff penalties could result if not met!

Whether your customers are consumers concerned about Identity Theft and Privacy, or companies concerned with protecting trade information, you are entrusted with information that they consider to be extremely confidential.

In fact, whether you know it or not, you have an "implied contract" to protect that information simply based on the fact that you are collecting the data to conduct business.

They have a legal right to expect you to take every precaution to protect it, including shredding it before it is discarded.

Why Use An Information Destruction Contractor?

  • Employees are more productive when focused on their core responsibilities
  • Safety - even small machines can cause injury if they grab clothing or accessories
  • Reduced capital and employment expenditures
  • Employees are most likely to realize the value of discarded company information
  • Company information such as payroll, legal  and employment issues, and correspondence should not     be exposed to most employees
  • In-house shredding will not handle large volumes and may prompt employees to circumvent the destruction process

Why use a NAID Member?

As part of the only organization dedicated to increasing the security and ethics of the information destruction industry, NAID MEMBERS are bound to a strict code of conduct. MRK Group Ltd is a proud NAID MEMBER!

As INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS, they take their business and your trust seriously enough to promote NAID's efforts to improve the industry. NAID MEMBERS hold themselves to a HIGHER STANDARD.

Why not just recycle it?

While NAID MEMBERS recycle everything they can after they destroy it, recycling alone does not establish the necessary requirements of information destruction such as:

  • How it was destroyed
  • Where it was destroyed
  • Who destroyed it
  • When it was destroyed
  • Legal chain of custody
  • Fiduciary responsibilities
