I’m still not sold on the value of a BtoB small business being a member of the Better Business Bureau , but they are doing some good things in the identity theft arena.
They’ve partnered with Equifax, NAID, and ProQuo to hold the second annual “Secure Your ID” day which will take place on Saturday September 20 in nearly 90 communities across the US and Canada.
Here’s the scoop. They will be providing consumers and small businesses with free onsite document shredding and expert identity protection advice to those who visit.
According to the BBB, their first “Secure Your ID” day held in 54 communities resulted in more than 500,000 pounds of sensitive documents being responsibly disposed of. That is quite an accomplishment.
If you decide to participate, you can bring up to three boxes or bags of documents to be shredded. Make sure you remove all documents from binders.
Sounds like a good time for your small business to do some fall clean up if there’s an event in your area. You can go to the BBB Secure Your ID website for more information.
If you go, please make sure to come back and leave your comments about what you thought about this effort.
