Shredding Myths: A five post myth buster – Myth #2
As we said in our last post, there are several myths to bust when it comes to shredding. We first explained to you that due to contrary belief, once your garbage hits the curb, your documents can go anywhere. We also told you about not keeping documents “just in case”. Well, we have additional myths that you may not be aware of, that could keep you safe from identity theft.
It’s better to save confidential documents and/or records, “just in case.” Businesses are required by law to maintain a variety of records. They are also required to properly disposed of confidential documents when it’s time. Every business should have a policy in place to properly destroy documents, and that policy should be hiring a shredding service. And for personal documents, ensure you don’t just have your documents lying around. If there happens to be theft of your home, car, or business, your documents are not safe. Make sure to shred documents that are in the open and no longer needed.
