Taking apart the availability of shredders

The torrents of documents that pass through a law department include some of the company’s most sensitive. Those proprietary and confidential documents – executive severance agreements, plans for reductions in force, settlement negotiations, and internal investigations – are vulnerable to improper disclosure – unless the department uses a shredder.

Shredders are inexpensive and easy to use, so the hard part about shredding is setting out a policy for when should documents be shredded and who should do the shredding. Mind, one complementary security measure for documents that need to be kept secret is to put printer/faxes in more offices.
