Document Destruction (Shredding) In Eastern Iowa

Advantage Document Scanning and Storage Solutions is a National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), AAA Certified Information Destruction Service Provider located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and offers Eastern Iowa’s professional community a secure, low-cost alternative for the destruction or storage of records and files that no longer need to be retained. 

Advantage systematically and securely disposes of confidential or sensitive documents to prevent unauthorized access to the information they contain. Our processes involve the destruction of physical documents to a point where they cannot be reconstructed or accessed.

The purpose of secure document destruction is to protect sensitive information and maintain privacy. It is particularly important for organizations that handle personal, financial, or legally protected data, such as banks, healthcare providers, government agencies, and businesses that deal with customer information.

Advantage DS3 processes and procedures require that documents and materials are stored securely until they are ready for destruction. This includes locked containers and restricted access areas to prevent unauthorized access.

The documents are shredded using specialized equipment that ensures they are destroyed and rendered unreadable. After the documents have been shredded, a certificate of destruction is usually provided as proof that the documents have been securely and properly destroyed.

Advantage Document Scanning and Storage’s secure document destruction service provides organizations with the means to comply with data protection and privacy regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). It mitigates the risk of identity theft, fraud, and unauthorized access to sensitive information. Additionally, it promotes a culture of information security and ensures that confidential documents are properly managed throughout their lifecycle.
