SWANSEA – Partners Insurance Group sponsored Shredding Day to provide community residents with an opportunity to dispose of sensitive documents in a secure way, and at no cost.
Shredding Day held at Partners’ Swansea office on May 17 centered on a secure shred truck provided by DataSafe, a West Bridgewater, Mass. security shredding company, according to an announcement from the insurance company.
“We’re happy to be able to provide this essential service to help our customers and the public protect themselves,” said Partners Insurance Group President and CEO Lawrence Wilson. “Identity theft and the risks associated with mishandled confidential information can be devastating.”
In addition to the shredding of documents, representatives from Partners offered information on how to protect sensitive information.
