Don’t “Vacation” This Summer from Keeping Your Business Safe from Information and Productivity Theft – Swingline Stack-and-Shred(TM) 250X and Stack-and-Shred(TM) 500X Paper Shredders Offer Best Options for Business-Class Protection
LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Swingline®, a worldwide leader in delivering workspace tools for the business, home and mobile office, is reminding business owners that the right business-class paper shredder provides an ultra-effective and cost-efficient first line of defense preventing information theft. This ongoing issue for companies of all sizes can undo years of hard work that go into building a successful business.
Swingline Stack-and-Shred business-class shredders offer the added benefit of increased employee productivity by providing key features that allow users in an office environment to simply stack, shut and go – freeing them up to move on to more important tasks.
“Theft comes in all forms, and at any time of the year – it can be the inappropriate or illegal access of company information and documents or perhaps the biggest culprit of all — productivity theft. We have all wasted time standing and feeding the company shredder,” said Mike Stranders, global director of Product Marketing, ACCO Brands. “With the introduction of the Swingline Stack-and-Shred business-class shredders, we have found a way to put that time back in a day.”
One of the easiest and most basic levels of protection from information and productivity theft is to properly and regularly shred sensitive paperwork. In fact, a U.S. Department of Defense directive specifically identifies cross-cut shredders as the minimum level of security for shredding. Employees can rely on a paper shredder that can tackle the task day in and day out — such as the Swingline Stack-and-Shred 250X and Stack-and-Shred 500X, which are specifically designed for small, medium and large office settings.
Remember: business records of any kind should never just be tossed into the trash or recycling bin where they can become easily accessible for criminals intent on stealing company information. Instead, all business records that you no longer need should be shredded. Swingline Stack-and-Shred business-class paper shredders effectively eliminate the paper trail. According to a 12-month survey from the Federal Trade Commission, identity theft costs businesses a staggering $50 billion and consumers an additional $5 billion in out-of-pocket expenses.
