Shredding personal and confidential documents is becoming exceedingly important for many reasons. Privacy laws are becoming more stringent, and thieves are always looking for an opportunity to get identity information. Even just a first name is considered to be personally identifiable information (PII) and documents containing any PII should always be shredded, not just thrown in the trash.
The 2017 Identity Fraud Study, released by Javelin Strategy & Research, found that $16 billion was stolen from 15.4 million U.S. consumers in 2016, compared with $15.3 billion and 13.1 million victims a year earlier.
In the past six years identity thieves have stolen over $107 billion.
