Bookmark and Share

According to a number of reports linked below, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (pictured) has fined yet another company for discarding personal information without destroying it first, thus violating the state’s destruction requirement.

Reports claim that Ohio-based Check n’ Go will pay $220,000 in fines. In addition, the judgment requires the firm to create written policies to prevent such incidents in the future, including employee training and development of systems and procedures to ensure proper destruction.

In March of this year, the Texas AG’s office announced a $315,000 dollar settlement with CVS Pharmacy for a similar violation. Additional cases are in the process of settlement.
