Dedicating time to creating a document retention policy for your business may seem time-consuming and not worth the dollars because you’ve never had any breach of data before. Using preventative care can help your business save a lot of money in the chance that your business is targeted and some of your outdated, or not professionally destroyed documents get into the wrong hands.

When your customers choose your business for your goods or services, they’re trusting you with their information.
- Potential Cost Savings
Having a policy set up that people are required to follow eliminates the maintenance and storage of old records.
- Easy Access
With less paper clutter you’re going to be able to find what you need faster.

Keeping documents for longer than necessary can be dangerous for your business. Having your employees or customers confidential documents stolen can be very costly to a company of any size.
- Efficient Workspace
Knowing that all of your documents are being retained for the proper amount of time, and are in the correct place can save precious time. If your business is in a lawsuit, knowing where the documentation for proof of your doings can aid in a successful case.
