Are you storing microfilm (or microfiche) with Personally Identifiable Information (PII)? If so, you’ll want to have the microfilm securely destroyed – and we can help!
Many businesses in the financial, healthcare, and education industries have legacy records stored on microfilm/microfiche. Often they’re required to keep these records for a set period of time – seven years is the norm – and once that “keep til” date has passed the microfilm needs to be properly destroyed.
On-Site Information Destruction has specialized machinery designed for completely destroying microfilm. It reduces the microfilm down to 3/32″ – far too small for data on it to be recoverable.
The importance of proper destruction of microfilm storing PII can’t be overstated. Personal information like names, social security numbers, bank records, and medical records can be used in identity theft, tax fraud, and other crimes.
Not to mention the fines and legal fees associated with violations of regulations like HIPAA, FACTA, GLBA, and others.
Protect your customers, your business, and yourself by securely destroying old microfilm!
