Working from home can make you more vulnerable to identity thieves and hackers. Be sure to shred sensitive business files before tossing them into the trash.
· Shred files with corporate or customer names, phone numbers or banking info.
· Use a micro-cut shredder for the best security; anything larger can be pieced back together more easily.
· Ask your employer if they’ll help with the purchase of a home unit. Or, if you have a home-based business, you may be able to write off the purchase of a shredder.
