Corporate identity theft is devastating

Identity theft at the corporate level

Corporate identity theft is when someone steals a
company’s identity by:


- Using legitimate business information to obtain goods and services.

- Creating fake companies to scam real companies.

- Incorporating companies using the same name as a defunct or inactive publicly traded corporation.

- Corporate espionage.

Serious damage can be done if your corporate
information gets into the wrong hands.


Reality is that your information is more susceptible to theft than ever.

Consider your company’s information—whether corporate information, employee records or other sensitive information—these are a valuable commodity in today’s environment. Your security measures need to match that level of importance. Further, regulatory standards, including Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA), Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) legislation, demand heightened levels of protection in securing privacy.

Take steps to protect yourself; it doesn’t take much time. Put together a security plan that includes the proper storage and destruction of the materials you no longer need. Once implemented, your plan will become routine and a manageable part of the workday.

Did you know ......

  • Dumpster diving is actually legal. Once you discard your company's materials, those materials are fair game. That's why it's imperative to properly manage all corporate information.
  • The average loss to business due to employee fraud and theft is $2000 per employee per year.
  • Lost Information costs $182 per compromised record and companies sacrificed $2.5 million in lost business as a result.

    Customer Testimonials

    "I had already sent an e-mail to Joe Panella telling him how impressed I was with Clary already because of his prompt response to my order. I had just had a horrible experience with another company that I ordered the same merchandise from, so I was pleasantly surprised with the wonderful service I got from Clary right away. We have not yet received our shredder (it has been shipped), but I am very excited that it is on its way! It is amazing that I had been dealing with another company for over two months and now after only two weeks our shredder will soon be here! Thank you so much for your prompt service and Joe was very pleasant on the phone, also! Pat Wright, Westhaven Elementary School, 118 Westhaven School Road, Belleville, IL 62220 618-257-9201"
