Bad Publicity and the Press

Contact Shredding by Adera

There is almost nothing more salient for the media than a story related to the inappropriate dumping of confidential information.

Recently, in Pasco County, Florida detectives were trying to ascertain who dumped medical records with sensitive information at a Land O' Lakes recycling center.

Over one weekend, one of the dumpsters at the Land O’Lakes facility was filled about three quarters of the way full with records.

The sheriff's office deemed the breach of security so serious that they carried out the shredding of the sensitive information, which included names and social security numbers.

The sheriff's office stated that it's now up to the Florida’s Department of Legal Affairs to determine if there are any charges or fines and to notify anyone whose records were in the dumpster.

The full story, and video evidence of the incident can be accessed by clicking this link.

It is obvious from the video that the incident involves many hundreds of records, and that the local TV channel, CTEN NEWS, has only just got started with what has become investigative journalism 101 for the media.

The cost of utilizing a certified shredding company to destroy those records pales into insignificance when compared to the potential financial backlash, and damaged reputations that are likely to ensue from this seemingly mindless act of dumping highly sensitive and confidential information.
