Did you know that the National Security Agency (NSA) has specific standards and guidelines on data destruction? Most businesses don’t, but that doesn’t make it untrue. You can find the standards on the NSA’s official website here.
They are only binding for government agencies and contractors, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay attention. The NSA, known for its secrecy, knows better than any other organization in this country how important secure data destruction is. You may think that their information is worthy of protection more so than your own, but that’s not necessarily the case.
The dangers are obvious if you’re a bank or financial institution. Losing or allowing a breach to your customer data can mean the end of your business, or at the very least a major financial and credibility loss. But other businesses aren’t far behind.
In the age of big data, marketing, sales and financial departments alike are storing increasing amounts of customer data in order to target and analyze processes more specifically. Any of that data, if breached, could be dangerous in the hand of the wrong people. That’s why the NSA has data destruction standards, and it’s why we’re trying to help.
