This is the time of year when children hunt high and low for eggs and candy supposedly hidden by a giant bunny. It always seemed strange to me that this bunny chose to hide them instead of out them in the most obvious places. Wouldn't that be a little more positive?
But I’m curious to know how many of these treasures just remain hidden each year because they were inadvertently hidden so well. I know at our house those silly plastic eggs and foil covered chocolates continue to show up for months to come after all of them were apparently found.
With many businesses the same effect happens with their files. As long term retention boxes were being filled, extra files inadvertently make their way into the wrong boxes. And for some universally bizarre reason, it’s always those files that are most needed that end up hidden from view. And they cannot and will not likely be found because they aren't where they are supposed to be.
Our file indexing service can help you to ensure you know exactly what is in each and every box. We carefully inventory every storage box one file at a time so you know with certainty where everything is. We want to find those files that got placed by mistake in the wrong box. Cause when you need them a couple of years from now, even if they were in the wrong box, we can retrieve them quickly.

Expected FTC Chair Ramirez Could Push for Global Privacy Rules
During Tenure, Commissioner Has Championed Digital-Data Security and Has Been Voice for Non-English-Speaking Citizens
The Federal Trade Commission has reportedly chosen a Barack Obama campaign insider, FTC Commissioner Edith Ramirez, as its next chairman. Ms. Ramirez has a background steeped in antitrust and competition issues, and served as director of Latino outreach for the Obama 2008 campaign. She has indicated support of comprehensive privacy legislation and robust rules around children's data collection.
In addition, Ms. Ramirez, a bilingual Mexican-American, can be expected to champion globalized approaches to consumer privacy protection and to clamp down on fraudulent marketing aimed at Spanish-speaking communities.
Many believed fellow Commissioner Julie Brill would get the nod to replace former Chairman Jon Leibowitz. However, the fact that the Obama administration chose a woman comes as no surprise, considering criticism of the president's male-centric senior advisory staff.
Politico and The Washington Post were among the first to report the appointment, which the FTC has not confirmed. An FTC spokesperson said the agency "can't comment on the appointment of the next chairman until the White House has made a formal announcement."
The appointment of Ms. Ramirez is somewhat unexpected among Beltway insiders, though she was considered to be in the running. Ms. Ramirez is "just extremely quiet. She's not as vocal and as public as Commissioner Brill has been," said Interactive Advertising Bureau senior VP-General Counsel Mike Zaneis earlier this month. "But in this town, never underestimate the value of political connections," he said, noting the presumed chairman's affiliation with the president.
Commissioner Ramirez alluded to Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation cross-border privacy rules during an FTC workshop in November on "Protecting Consumers Across Borders," stating, "I believe the FTC is well-positioned to take a leadership role in exploring transnational, enforceable codes of conduct and promoting best practices."
In a 2010 interview with the Federal Civil Enforcement Committee, Ms. Ramirez -- then just named a commissioner -- said, "I intend to be especially involved in technology issues as they relate to the cross-border dimensions of privacy and data security." She continued, "I will also continue to push the commission to think creatively about ways to better educate consumers about risks in the marketplace."
She also stressed her interest in pushing for the FTC to protect Spanish-speaking consumers against fraud. Referring to predatory prepaid-calling-card marketing, she noted, "I intend to be actively involved in FTC initiatives targeting non-English-speaking consumers, especially the large number of those who are primarily Spanish-speaking. I also look forward to further raising the profile of the agency's work on behalf of all minority and underserved communities."
