Real Estate is Your Business. Protecting Private Information is Ours.

Protect your real estate business from fraud and identity theft with real estate paper shredding and hard drive destruction services from the leader in information destruction.

Information breaches and data theft are more commonplace every year. And while most incidents were once confined to the financial and retail sectors, more and more breaches occur in any industry that collects, manages, and stores confidential information – especially if that information contains financial details.

Whether you are in commercial or consumer real estate, firms like yours are likely targets because of the significant personal and financial information you rely upon in the course of any property transaction. And your relationship with your clients relies on transparency and confidentiality; they expect you to keep their personal, private information safe and secure from the threats and risks of an information breach.

Protect your business. Protect your clients. Get Shred-it.

Protecting your confidential information isn’t just good business, it’s the law!

Like most industries that work with private and confidential information, the real estate sector is heavily regulated and governed. And laws designed to protect identities, medical information, financial data, and personal privacy come with strict rules – and strong fines for violating them. We can help you stay compliant.

Here are just a few of the key Federal, State, and Local information security laws that require privacy compliance.

Is an act set up for publicly traded companies to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate financial disclosures. The act also requires secure document retention and destruction – to better protect against corporate and accounting fraud.
