Identity Theft Alert: Be Careful When Making Copies

You make copies of I9s, social security cards, driver’s licenses, etc. all the time.  It’s just routine, right?

Certainly, it’s a common practice to take a record of a new employee’s information as well as other critical business and human resources docs, but have you ever wondered what happens when a copy is made? 

Check out this investigative report from CBS.  If you’re not thoroughly surprised and a little concerned, watch it again

Does this mean that you should never use a copy machine?  Of course not.  But when you dispose of your digital imaging unit, it’s critical to have the drive scrubbed clean.  That way, you’ll protect your business and your employees.
