Protect Your Confidential Information with Electronics Recycling and Data Destruction Services

The Challenges of the Financial Industry

The financial industry is one of the most targeted industries for criminals. Banks, loan services, credit unions, and brokerage firms hold customers’ financial data and other confidential information such as Social Security Numbers, that could damage both their customers, employees, and business. 

Strict federal laws, such as SOX and GLBA, as well as state laws, govern data privacy for the financial industry to some of the highest standards, similar to healthcare. Penalties for non-compliance with SOX can reach up to $5 million and 20 years of imprisonment. Fines for GLBA non-compliance can go up to $100,000 per violation and 5 years of imprisonment. In addition, data breaches can damage a financial institution’s reputation, causing them to lose customers.

Secure data destruction and electronics recycling services protect the financial sector from putting their confidential information in the wrong hands. Depending on your service provider, you may be able to watch your devices get destroyed onsite for the utmost security. With onsite or offsite destruction and recycling, you will receive a certificate of destruction for your records to prove the process was done in compliance with these strict state and federal regulations.
