FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GAINESVILLE, VA – June 1, 2009 … TrueShred is pleased to announce the appointment of Alexander H. Knight as Account Executive at TrueShred. Mr. Knight’s most recent experience includes his role at The Leadership Institute in Arlington, VA. He is also a native Northern Virginian and a graduate of Christendom College.
“Alex’s background and energy enhances our effort to be the premier on-site document destruction company in the Washington DC Metro Area” said TrueShred’s Vice President and Director of Sales, Jason R. Knight.
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.
