Press Release Summary = More information is being transferred over the Internet than ever before. Are shredders still a necessity or are they becoming a piece of history?
Press Release Body = KAYSVILLE, Utah, February 20, 2007 - Identity theft is a continuing problem and will more than likely never go away. With more people than ever transferring data over the Internet, fraud is no longer a "paper only" issue. With our population moving towards a paperless society, most people still agree that paper will never go away.
With the invention of the computer, e-mail and the Internet, many thought paper would disappear. Most people will agree, however, that junk mail, credit card applications, bills and other paper material have only been on the rise. It is very tempting, when faced with so much junk mail, to simply throw these items in the garbage.
Many people think that simply tearing the mail in half will suffice. What they don't realize is that a letter that has been torn in two pieces is very easy to piece back together. Once re-assembled, the letter can be read, and if an application, be filled out and mailed from any location. Many credit card companies will still accept applications that are slightly damaged.
This means that paper shredders are still needed, and more now than ever. All mail with personal information should be shredded. It doesn't take much information to steal one's identity. It is a good idea to keep a shredder in the office, home office and in any location where mail may be opened.
Although large amounts of data can be transferred over the Internet, by way of e-mail or inter-company networks, CDs and DVDs are still widely used to hold data and information. When no longer needed, these storage devices should be destroyed. Many paper shredders now are capable of not only shredding paper, but CDs and DVDs as well (http://www.officezone.com/shred1.htm?NR).
