What is the proper method to dispose of confidential information?

The proper method to dispose of confidential information involves shredding documents into small, unreadable pieces. Cross-cut or micro-cut shredders provide higher security by cutting documents into smaller fragments compared to strip-cut shredders. After shredding, the shredded material should be mixed with other paper waste to further obscure the information. Professional shredding services typically use industrial-grade shredders that provide high levels of security.
