Jun. 12--What do doctors, lawyers, insurers, banks, the police, most businesses and all taxpayers have in common? According to Chris Akers of Iron Mountain, they're all targets for data theft.

"Consumers need to look at an overall responsibility strategy, really being confident of the fact that there are bad guys out there, and they'll use stolen data to their financial advantage," he said.

As long as there are identify thieves, there will be a market for document destruction, said Sam Bicking."

 In fact, despite the advent of the digital "paperless" society, the need to shred paper records has increased on par with the increasing sophistication of identity thieves as well as emerging consumer privacy legislation.

"The people at a typical business are not paid to be shredders; they're accountants, managers or secretaries." he said. "If you free them up from shredding, even if it's only 30 minutes a day, they can invest more time in what they do well, what they prefer to do, and what makes their organization more productive."
