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.
Shredders Security Standards

Paper shredders fall into six levels of security level 1 (lowest) to level 6 (highest) as defined in DIN32757. These levels have been defined under different considerations about information media and security required. For normal home use then a lower level of security is suitable. For an office where information such as personnel and wage documents are being disposed, then a higher level (cross cut shredder model) would be suitable.

Drake I purchased the C-225Ci for added protection for my office’s sensitive information. I liked quite a few things about this machine that I have listed: • Designed specifically for small businesses • Created for continuous document shredding • Features a continuous duty motor • Sleek, modern design for office equipment • Jam Proof System • Shreds 20 sheets per pass • 16-gallon waste bin • Lifetime warranty on cutting heads • 3-year warrant on parts and service I was sold after I read these specifications. I purchased the shredder, and I must say that I am very pleased with the performance so far. There were a few other things that impressed me about this machine. I liked that it had the latest technology to make office use a bit easier. The machine has SafeSense technology that prevents potential accidents. The machine has a sensor that immediately stops the machine when hands get too close to the feeding area. I know for a fact that the SafeSense works because my hands got a little to close the other day, and the machine stopped. The machine is unusually quiet for a shredder. It has SilentShred technology that makes this machine operate quietly for shared office spaces. The machine shreds hundreds of pages per week in my office. The machine can cut up to 20 sheets of paper in one pass. The shredding speed is 20 feet per minute. The machine has automatic functioning that makes it extremely convenient and easy to use.

    "My experience with Clary business specifically Kevin Wong has been a positive. I haven't received my shredder yet because I just placed the order this week, but I was very surprised that they have already shipped it. That was impressive.
