A Shred Ahead Shares Examples of Secure Documents to Shred

A Shred Ahead recommends that you shred more than just financial documents to keep sensitive data safe.

    NORCROSS, GA, June 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Individuals naturally want to do their best to protect themselves by properly dispose of sensitive data, but many simply have no idea what data they need to destroy through shredding to avoid compromising confidential information. A Shred Ahead, an Atlanta shredding company, wishes to explain what kind of data needs to be shredded.

Generally, paper documents are the first thing people think of when they think of shredding services. Obvious documents to shred include those containing social security numbers, tax information, banking information (including routing numbers on checks), and credit card numbers. Few people who need shredding services in Atlanta realize that even less personal information should be shredded to ensure protection. Anything with addresses, full names, or even telephone numbers should be shredded.

Metro Atlanta business owners have even more information that they should let Atlanta shredding professionals, A Shred Ahead, destroy. Client records and information, proposals or quotes, invoices, receipts, legal documents, internal memos, financial records, contracts, and account records should all be shredded.

Shredding shouldn't stop at paper documents either. Data on CDs, DVDs, and computer backups should be professionally destroyed, as should any videos, audio recordings, or product samples or prototypes.

"It can be complicated to know all of the things to have shredded," says Tom Hanlon of A Shred Ahead. "It's far simpler to hire A Shred Ahead and dispose of all of your information safely than to try to sift through documents and information for specific data."
