Does your data security policy involve card destruction?
Card destruction issues need to be addressed in employee training materials and data security policies. The organizational leadership cannot expect employees to comply with the card destruction policy unless it is clearly defined. Including this policy in the training materials allows you to point out later in case you do need to punish employees for improperly destroying cards. It doesn't have to be complex; Your card destruction policy can basically be summarized as "all payment/access cards and ID cards must be collected in order to be destroyed by security services at the end of their lifecycle.
Collectibles are very important. Some employees may look at their home shredder with a built-in credit card slot and think, 'I can tear up this expired company credit card or plastic ID card myself,' resulting in an incorrect card, just like the image in this article. This is much easier than personally mailing or delivering the card and ID card to the personnel designated by your company to collect sensitive materials for crushing.
The problem is that you cannot verify after employees actually crush your company's sensitive data, or they secretly hold this data. Enterprises of any size may engage in internal fraud. Even if you trust your team, greedy or desperate individuals may try to use their insider identities to scam your business.
Educating employees on the card destruction policy will clearly inform them that your company is serious about card destruction. They should be aware that specific personnel in your organization or specific office will track outdated payment and access cards, badges, and any other company property that holds sensitive data. Any employee who wants to keep their ID card or access card when resigning knows not to bother, as your company will not let this happen.
