Destroying Paper Documents

The folks over at ITS Tactical have an interesting article on securely disposing paper documents.

Here is an excerpt:


The reconstruction of sensitive documentation has been around as long as shredders have. According to a fantastic NY Time article that everyone should read, reconstruction was first brought to light during the 1979 US Embassy takeover in Tehran. The Iranians elicited the help of local carpet weavers to reconstruct sensitive documents, which were sold on the streets of Tehran as a testament to US imperialism.

Just know that with some time and even the help of computer programs like Unshredder, there isn’t much reassurance that your documents will stay shredded.

Document Burn Bag
ITS Tactical also sells "Burn Bags" for important documents (or shreddings from documents) at a reasonable price, just like the kind you'd find at government agencies or in the movies.
