Why do corporate spies still dumpster dive? Here’s a list of what they are looking for and why:
Company Phone books
Can give a hacker names and numbers of people to target and impersonate.
Contain information about people who are in positions of authority within the organization.
Provide small amounts of useful information for creating authentic looking fake memos.
Show hackers how secure and insecure a company really is.
Can tell a corporate spy which employees are out of town at a particular time.
Sensitive data and other sources of technical information may give a hacker the exact information he needs to access the network.
If you are not sure whether or not it should be shred–shred it.
