On my commute this morning, a “shrink wrapped” van was next to me in traffic, advertising its service.
While the scanning of paper containing PII or other sensitive information is a great idea to eliminate one typical means of loss potential resulting in a reportable breach incident, the message on the van was …. well, not so much…..
“Scan it then shred it” would be less “catchy”, but would certainly be the more acceptable option from a data protection standpoint — leaving paper containing PII or other sensitive or protected information in an unsecured recycling container can also expose that information to potential security breach.
What does your company do with its paper information assets?
