Here in Massachusetts, legislation known as “Standards for the Protection of Personal Information of Residents of the Commonwealth” (201 CMR 17.00) likely effects the way your organization handles certain types of waste. This regulation states that, if your business keeps records that includes Massachusetts’ residents’ names in connection with other personal information, you’re legally required to protect that information at all times. The only way to stay compliant is to thoroughly destroy any such records once they’re obsolete. In these cases, recycling paper files and data-storing devices isn’t adequate; They have to be thoroughly and permanently destroyed.
Even if your business doesn’t keep information about Massachusetts residents, it does keep confidential records of some type and should be wary of how this information is stored and disposed of. Personnel files include health and payroll records, accounting files hold the business’s financial records, client communications contain proprietary information – these files, both paper and electronic, require safekeeping and eventual destruction.
