Should You Rent A Paper Shredder

Let us just say that this DIY project is not worth doing for more than one reason. While shredding your own sensitive documents can give you the peace of mind that the destruction is done correctly and maybe you find the sound of the shredder soothing, it is often a total waste of time and money. Unless you shred your old documents on the go and you do this task daily, a personal shredder will often take up your valuable time as it will jam or overheat every ten minutes and the cost of a decent paper shredder can be prohibitive.

Data breaches can cause small business to go bankrupt because of the high negative company reputation and liability exposures.
