Super Storm Sandy affected thousands of businesses on Wall Street and beyond. One particular financial firm faced potential damage to documents located in three sub-basements. For three days, materials were totally submerged.
At risk were over 30,000 boxes of client records full of confidential and sensitive personal data. All of the data had to be handled and destroyed in ways that complied with federal statutes protecting personal information. The business records that needed restoration had to be dried, cleaned and sterilized, as the flood water from Sandy was highly polluted. All of the restoration work was completed in less than 30 days at the client’s request so their doors could open as quickly as possible and they could get back to business as usual.
