MT Systems: Used Laptops/Refurbished LapThe connection between identity theft and paper shredder servicestops

July 15, 2011



Identity theft is the bane of all institutions dealing with sensitive and confidential information. Hospitals, for example, are always the target for identity theft, as they provide a vast source of victims who have bank accounts and, furthermore, collect private information about their patients. This is one of the reasons why hospitals are sensitive about the subject of patient-doctor confidentiality. Similarly, your company may be vulnerable to identity theft if you are dealing with confidential information.

It is important to know that even a simple name and address qualify as personally compromising information which can be used if it falls into the wrong hands. Such information can be used to try to access an employee’s bank account. More so in developed places like Canada, especially. In fact, identity theft is a grave matter and there is no quick or easy solution. There’s no real safeguard against identity theft after the information has been stolen.

The best way to prevent identity theft is to secure confidential information. Shredder services in Toronto, for example, are a good way of making sure the disposal of the confidential information goes smoothly. Paper shredder services are inexpensive and easy to use and are completely safe against theft as all personal information is indecipherable.
