Spring Cleaning Tips to Protect from Identity Theft
The Identity Theft Resource Center recommends their
Top 5 Tipsfor spring cleaning the home office:
Begin with the Basics:Sort through the piles of paperwork on your desk and in your office drawers. Place them into two categories: ‘save’ and ‘shred.’
Proper Storage:Organize the "save" pile into labeled folders and be sure to put anything confidential into a fire-proof lock box. The "shred" pile should be properly disposed of with aCross-Cut shredder, such as aFellowes P-12C.
Cross-Cut technology is an important feature for a shredder because itprovides high security, destroying confidential information into unidentifiable pieces. Equally important areenhanced safety features, such as Fellowes'SafeSense technology, which shuts the machine down when hands come too close to the paper opening, which isso important if you have children.
Get a Digital Makeover:Refresh your home office computer bydeleting filesyou no longer use andbacking-up important dataonto an external hard drive. Clean out your inbox andchange all passwords. Refreshing your computer is a good practice to follow throughout the year as well.
Make Life Easier:Plan ahead by purchasingorganizational toolsfor your desk, such as computer risers or file folder holders. This will help clear clutter from your desk top while keeping things within arms reach.
