GAINESVILLE, VA – September 1, 2008 … TrueShred is pleased to announce the appointment of Jason R. Knight to Vice President and Director of Sales. Jason is also now a significant shareholder in TrueShred, Inc. Mr. Knight’s most recent experience includes his role as Mid-Atlantic sales manager for a leading nationwide commercial security company.

Millions of U.S. consumers continue to be plagued by identity theft each year. Dunn’s Review estimates that corporate espionage costs U.S. businesses more than $4 billion annually.
In response to this growing risk, the following legislation has been enacted: FACTA (Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act) a federal law designed to reduce the risk of consumer fraud and identity theft by requiring the destruction of all Consumer Information before it is discarded; HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) designed to enforce the destruction of discarded patient information; and, GLB (Graham/Leach/Bliley Act) a federal law to reduce the risk of consumer fraud and identity theft within the financial services sector.
TrueShred’s helps companies comply with these laws by destroying records on-site – ensuring a secure “chain of custody” from the moment sensitive information leaves a business office to the moment it is shredded curbside. TrueShred’s state-of the-art trucks shred paper at a rate of 8,000lbs. per hour.
