Angleton’s Document Shredding Solution

Angleton, the county seat of Brazoria County, is a wide-awake, thriving, hustling, little city of 1200 inhabitants. Situated on the main line of the St. Louis. Brownsville & Mexico and the Velasco branch of the International & Great Northern railroads, it is in the heart of one of the best agricultural sections of the State.

Before the Civil War Brazoria County was practically one vast sugar plantation. Following the emancipation of the slaves, however, the plantations were abandoned, and within a few years the land became heavily timbered. Today the country is being reclaimed and settled by a very desirable class of farmers and home builders. Notwithstanding cotton and corn are the staple crops, the farmers are (thanks to the example set and the valuable lessons taught at the State Experimental farm, near Angleton) diversifying their crops and rapidly adopting intensified farming methods. Commercially, Angleton has two good banks, two drug stores, two lumber yards, an excellent paper, the Angleton Times; two hotels, twelve general merchandise stores, two or three good physicians, a number of able attorneys and several real estate dealers. Angleton is noted for her good churches. The Methodists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians and Baptists have magnificent church buildings. The Christian and Catholic denominations have organizations, but as yet they have no church edifices.

Risks of Office Shredders

When you use office shredders, which are slow, unreliable, and inefficient, they are risky because they give the employee complete discretion as to whether a document should be shredded or discarded in the trash. Many business data breaches are the result of such policies. Corporate data breaches are costly in many ways. Here are just a few:

  • Criminal and/or Civil Penalties
  • Identity Theft
  • Exposure of Private Client or Patient Information
  • Theft of Trademark Secrets or Competitive Information
  • Loss of Client Confidence
  • Damaged Public Relations
  • Negative Media Coverage
