LSS now has Downstream Data Coverage insurance, which sets us apart from about 99% of all other shredding companies in the world. We are one of less than 100 companies worldwide which have this coverage.
As the sheer volume of business data increases day by day, companies everywhere are flocking to hard drive destruction and media shredding providers to securely destroy their data. But what happens if there is a breach or your sensitive data before it is destroyed?
You should know that, if personally identifiable information (PII) is compromised or even lost while your information destruction provider has possession of it, your company will be held liable. The fines and notification costs could cost your business many thousands of dollars, not to mention any lawsuits that result. IT’s critical that both your company and your data destruction provider are covered by insurance designed specifically for this situation. Sadly, the majority of professional liability policies do not cover data breaches.
At Land Shark Shredding, we wanted insurance that would protect both our business and yours in the case of a data breach. We chose Downstream Data because they cover data breach claims to the full extent of the policy, unlike other insurance companies that apply claim limits.
