Mobile shredding has many benefits and the most important benefit is that it is nearly impossible for someone to reconstruct a document. With home shredders or those found in small offices, the paper is shredded into strips, which takes a little patience and time to reconstruct. Crosscut shredders create piles of tiny pieces. Those pieces are mixed with others' documents and then baled before sending to a recycling company.
Confidential information and trade secrets are often the targets of identity thieves and disgruntled employees. The Trademarks Act, Copyright Act and Patent Act do not regulate many trade secrets or any confidential information. This means that you have to protect this information yourself. Security compliance should be taught at your place of employment or your business if you are a business owner.
In 2017, a security breach at Equifax caused over 145 million Americans to have their personal information accessed. And that doesn't count the millions who were harmed or potentially harmed by security breaches at JP Morgan Chase, Target and Uber. You may do everything you can to keep your confidential information out of the hands of identity thieves, but there's not much you can do if they access it through a company you trust to keep your information safe.
