ICYMI: Certificates of Destruction, Compromising Work Habits, and Visual Hacking

Here’s what you missed on the Legal Shred blog this month…

Certificates of Destruction: Why They’re Important

A certified document destruction specialist ensures that your obsolete information is destroyed in its entirety with a highly secure, controlled, closed-process to ensure the safety of your information, mitigating your risks and protecting your business reputation.  At the end of services, you’ll receive a certificate of destruction, and when it comes to shredding, here’s what that means and why it’s important.

Work Habits That Could Be Compromising Your Data Security

While you may take digital data security seriously, have a look around the office.  Data breaches go far beyond what’s stored in the cloud.  Leave papers out in the open?  Do you print on a public printer?  Are you hoarding old hard drives and computers?  If any of these work habits apply to you, here’s why you need to change these habits for your protection.

Visual Hacking Is Real (and How It Can Compromise Your Identity)

Have you ever considered that what’s happening on those computer monitors could be exposing you, your customers, or your employee data to wandering eyes?  Visual hacking is the act of physically spying on someone’s desk or computer screens.  Visual hacking is a low-tech threat as compared to malware, ransomware, or other high-tech threats, however, the repercussions can be just as detrimental. Here’s what you need to know about visual hacking.
