Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/28/2012 -- Identity theft – which involves stealing of personal details and using them to commit fraud – is a widespread crime in the United States that is often operated by organized crime groups. Expectedly, many such law-breakers operate using advanced technologies, such as password and website hacking, in victimizing some 9.3 million Americans on a yearly basis. Studies reveal, however, that in 87% of identity theft cases, criminals acquire the details they need by dumpster diving, among other low-tech theft methods.
In an effort to protect businesses and the public, laws have been enacted to also address the security and privacy of personal data. Among other regulations, it is required that confidential and sensitive documents be destroyed in a manner that is designed to protect businesses and consumers.
