To shred or not to shred?

You have probably asked yourself that question before. Whether you have a business or personal documents, there are policies that dictate their retention time.

Why do you need a document retention policy/plan (DRP)?

  • You must keep documents for a specific period of time pursuant to federal, state or local laws.
  • With DRP you will be able to easily locate important documentation and free up space by destroying useless paperwork.
  • A good DRP will aid you in any litigation that might arise.

What are the steps?

  • Categorize the documents you produce, both physical and electronic.
  • Decide how long the documents should be kept by downloading this pdf
  • Choose safe storage options for your documents (you can back-up the documents electronically or find a proper facility)
  • Do not simply sell your old business computers and hard-drives.
  • Make sure you destroy your documents using a method that renders them unreadable.
