Top 3 Myths About Document Shredding
Document shredding couldn't possibly be that complicated - right? Wrong. Each day homeowners and office workers go about their days destroying documents under the pretense of these top three myths.
Myth #3 - No one will look through your trash
Believe it or not, several people routinely go through business and personal trash. What's scarier? Once in the dumpster, your trash is considered public property by the Supreme Court. When individuals go through trash looking for recyclables or boxes, they find personal information that can lead to a corporate data breach or personal identity theft.
Myth #2 - It is better to have too many records than not enough
You might think holding onto your tax documents from 10 years ago is a good idea, but in reality it does nothing but put you at risk if stolen. Not to mention, holding onto too many documents can cause unwanted clutter around the office and house. Put your mind at ease and establish a retention policy for yourself. After so many years, make sure you securely shred your documents to keep yourself from being at risk to identity theft.
Myth #1 - Shredded paper can't be recycled
We hate this myth - which is why it reached our number one spot! Most trash haulers don't want shredded paper in their recycle bins. However, when you shred your documents through a professional shredding service, their shredded paper goes to paper mills by truckload to be recycled into tissue paper and office paper for a more sustainable world.
"As your army faces the enemy and the enemy appears powerful, try to attack the enemy in one particular spot. If you are successful in crumbling that one particular spot, leave that spot and attack the next and so on and so forth, as if you were going down a winding road."
-Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645)
Musashi was an expert Japanese swordsman and rōnin. Musashi, as he was often simply known, became renowned through stories of his excellent, and unique double bladed swordsmanship and undefeated record in his 60 duels. He was the founder of the Hyōhō Niten Ichi-ryū or Niten-ryū style of swordsmanship and in his final years authored the The Book of Five Rings
First Principle: If data isn't collected, it can't be stolen.
Second Principle: Only people you trust can betray you. The rest are just out to get you.
Third Principle: Never underestimate the attention, risk, money and time that an opponent will put into reading traffic (Robert Morris).
Fourth Principle: Keep it simple. The more complex it is, the more places there are to attack.
Fifth Principle. Modes and choices are bad in crypto protocols, they give users choices they are not qualified to make. It's your job to be clever, not the user's.
Sixth Principle. a system that's hard to use either doesn't get used, or it gets misused. Good user interfaces are essential. Users don't RTFM, so don't expect them to.
Seventh Principle: Leaving holes to let "good governments" in will inevitably leave holes for others as well. (Jerry Leichter)
Eighth Principle: In code, assume nothing ever really goes away. (Jerry Leichter)
