Legislation and What They Mean For Businesses in Ohio
The Supreme Court has ruled that information in your business’s trash is “fair game” to anyone. With identity theft and information fraud at an all-time high, the federal government has enacted information destruction laws to protect consumers. These laws require businesses to certify shred, rather than simply discard information. This is an effort to help protect the privacy of patients and consumers. By utilizing professional on-site or off-site shredding services, you are ensuring that your business is compliant with federal laws.
Some of these laws include:
- Gramm Leach Bliley Act
- The Economic Espionage Act (EEA)
- The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA)
