HIPAA-Compliant Shredding

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted in 1996. It states that all U.S. healthcare organizations must prevent improper use or disclosure of protected patient health info. That means HIPAA-compliant secure shredding from the experts at A Shred Ahead. We’ll make it easy for you.

FACTA-Compliant Shredding

The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) was signed into law in 2003. It helps prevent consumer fraud and identity theft in retail transactions. Breeches in customer data are met with legal actions from the government and the victims. We’ll provide the shredding and documentation you need to avoid it.

GLBA-Compliant Shredding

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) came into law in 2001. It requires many types of financial institutions to maintain a robust information security program. These clients must destroy their customers’ sensitive data with proper disposal of outdated records. With A Shred Ahead, GLBA compliance is stress-free.
