ID Theft Via Employment Records

This USA Today article highlights how your employee data is increasingly vulnerable to ID theft. The means by which such information is obtained is not necessarily sophisticated or complicated, or accomplished electronically. For example, credit card receipts, 401K reports and direct deposit pay stubs thrown into the office trash are collected and then used to steal employee identities, so be careful what you throw away, and think about using a shredder for personal documents you discard.
