This list includes; Internal Memos, Drafts of Documents, Quotes, Financial Printouts, Meeting Notes, Employee Records, Pay Stubs, etc...

Over $100 billion a year is lost to information thieves! Did you know that there is NO LAW against Dumpster Diving. After your business has disposed of it’s documents, it has no claim to it’s privacy. Unfortunately, one of the weaknesses of any business is disgruntled employees. Countless new businesses are started by customer lists from an existing business. An easily implemented security plan is the only way to ensure that an upset employee will not make a mistake that they and/or your business could regret for a long time.
