National Records and Information Management Month! Time to Declutter and Secure Your Data

National Records and Information Management Month! Time to Declutter and Secure Your DataEvery April, we celebrate National Records and Information Management (RIM) Month. It’s a time to take a step back and assess how you are handling all the documents and information you accumulate – both personally and in the workplace.

At Legal Shred, we understand the importance of good recordkeeping, and it goes far beyond simple shredding.

This month is the perfect opportunity to:

  • Declutter your physical files: Sort through old documents, identify what needs to be shredded according to your record retention policy, and consider what can be digitized and stored electronically.
  • Organize your digital information: Clean up your computer files, categorize them logically, and back them up securely.
  • Review your records retention policy: Ensure you understand how long you’re legally required to keep certain documents. This is especially important for businesses who need to be compliant with industry regulations.

Did you know? Improper disposal of sensitive information can lead to hefty fines and even data breaches! Don’t risk it.

Here at Legal Shred, we can help you with both the destruction and secure storage of your records.

  • On-site document destruction: Our secure shredding services ensure your confidential information is destroyed completely and permanently.
  • Records storage: We offer secure and compliant storage solutions for documents you need to keep on hand while not taking up precious space in your home or office.

Don’t let information overwhelm you! Think of RIM Month as a spring cleaning for your records – get rid of what you don’t need, safely store what matters, and breathe easier knowing your data is secure and organized.
