To shred or not to shred?

You have probably asked yourself that question before. Whether you have business or personal documents, there are policies that dictate their retention time.

Why do you need a document retention policy/plan (DRP)?

  • You must keep documents for a specific period of time pursuant to federal, state or local laws.
  • With DRP you will be able to easily locate important documentation and free up space by destroying useless paperwork.
  • A good DRP will aid you in any litigation that might arise.

What are the steps?
