Secure Credit Card Shredding with Disintegrators

June 1, 2014 at 4:53 pm by SEM

In today’s high technology environment we are seeing firsthand the damage that can be done when a credit card or credit card number gets into the wrong hands. Credit card numbers are in high demand in the identity theft world. It only takes minutes to rack up a high balance on a credit card online. Credit card manufactures hold a large responsibility in securing this information. One way is to properly destroy credit cards once they’ve reached end of life. A disintegrator is a great solution for destroying cards securely and at a high capacity.

Credit cards are made of many different materials like plastic, steel, titanium and more. They also have a magnetic strip called the topping foil that contains customer and account information. What makes a disintegrator so effective is that it can handle multiple applications with one machine. Not only will it shred the cards at a high capacity but you also have the flexibility to destroy the cards in a variety of particle sizes based on your security requirements. Many organizations today are requesting military standard destruction of credit cards. Cyber security breaches have led to a higher demand for providing better solutions to control credit card information.

Deciding what type of disintegrator is best for your organization can be a challenge. SEM Regional Representatives are available and can put together a system that works for you. A system needs to be customized for your application based on the material to be destroyed, volume of destruction, size of the particle required, warehouse space, electrical power availability and more.
