Shredders & Paper Handling Equipment
Not all shredders are created equal. While medical documents are often handled in an office setting, typical office shredders are not appropriate for disposing of patient information and medical records. All PII (personally identifying information) and protected health information (PHI), even including patient sign-in sheets, must be disposed of using HIPAA-compliant shredders.
While HIPAA does not give specific guidelines for identifying suitable shredders, the HHS has indicated that proper document destruction in a manner that complies with HIPAA requires that the documents be “rendered essentially unreadable” so that it “cannot be reconstructed.” To ensure this level of destruction, it is absolutely necessary to choose a cross-cut shredder that produces extremely small shred particles. Any of our many HIPAA compliant shredders will allow you to dispose of medical records in a secure manner that protects both your organization and your patients.
For many years, intimus has been the first choice for the DOD, DOS, and many other US and world agencies which handle classified and top secret documents. We offer a variety of shredders which meet the requirements for Security Level 6/P-7 shredders, and are included on the NSA Evaluated Products List. Our Level 6/P-7 shredders currently offer the highest possible level of security—only shredders which satisfy these requirements can be used to destroy all classified documents, including those classified Secret and Top Secret.
If your organization handles and disposes of extremely sensitive and classified data, our high security shredders should be part of your first line of defense against accidental data leaks and document recovery. Our Level 6/P-7 shredders are ideal for disposing of all classified documents, including Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI), Top Secret, Secret, Confidential, Communications Secure (COMSEC), Special Access Programs (SAP), and more.
