Laws & Regulations
Privacy protection is a matter of law. Each of us is required by federal law (and increasingly by state and local mandates) to protect certain types of information. Secure, on site document destruction allows you to be compliant with these laws. Three important Federal Laws require specific safeguards to ensure confidentiality.
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
- The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2003 (FACTA)
- Gramm Leach Bliley Act, also known as the Financial Modernization Act of 1999
All three laws provide for stiff penalties for companies found to be in violation.
