Background Screening Information Disposal

Posted By Cindi

Date: November 8th, 2008

According to FACTA (the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003), all credit and background screening report information must be disposed of properly. To properly dispose of this type of information, paper records must be shredded or otherwise destroyed in such a way that there is no way to reconstruct the information. Any such information stored on a computer must be completely erased before that computer is sold, donated, or disposed of.
