Security Shredding Services is owned corporately by my wife Kami and myself, Lathan Asbra. In
2002, the federal government informed the public that the HIPAA law was going to be enacted in the
coming future. Owning a pharmacy, with a ton of information that was going to have to be destroyed
and the EPA telling us it couldn't be burned, we needed to find an alternative. After doing some
research and finding nothing as far as on-site shredding, we did a market survey and in 2003 we

bar is the one others compare themselves to. We couldn't be more convinced that we're on the right
When it comes to information security you want the best. We strive to be the highest professional
service shredding company above all the others and have been awarded for recognition for our
