If you’re at a small business, you may not have given your paper shredder a lot of thought. Maybe you brought equipment from your home or purchased a cheap option at an office supply store. However, if you don’t dispose of your confidential information with the proper equipment and systems, you put your customers and employees at great risk for identity theft. In 2018, identity theft affected over 60 million Americans. It’s easy for a criminal to access sensitive data through ‘dumpster diving’ and piecing together torn-up documents. Investing in a professional shredding system and professional shredding services will protect sensitive information.
