Isn’t the Recycling Bin a Good Option?
Recycling bins, while great for the right materials, aren’t effective for the disposal of sensitive documents, simply since they are left in open eyesight. If a document is exposed to the wrong individual and stolen, you could be susceptible to information theft down the road all due to a careless toss of a document. Don’t let this happen to you; always disposed of sensitive files in a locked and covered bin that eliminates access.
Remember that even a pay-stub or credit card statement providing financial details can be enough to provide a criminal with enough ammunition to carry out their crime. All that is required is a tidbit of data to build their conniving plan. Refrain from putting yourself in this position when there is an easy way to avoid it in the first place. At the end of the day, you should be securely shredding anything that’s considered confidential in nature. You will be glad you did!
