One of the easiest ways identities are stolen is via paper trails; most of us who receives vital information such as Bank Statements, Invoices, Credit Card statements, whether recently or in the past might not think much of it when it comes to disposing off those papers. They are easy access or window into our lives if they get in the wrong hands.
Offices who deals with personal information such as Banks, Insurance companies etc, should seek ways to dispose customers’ data that can be easily used to clone information.
Incidences of data breaches rose a dramatic 30 percent in 2013 over the previous year. And with the Ponemon Institute reporting the cost of a single data breach incident averaged $5.4 million last year, the proper storage and destruction of confidential information has quickly become one of the most important issues facing today’s organizations.
