Preventing Identity Theft — JK Hosts a Shredding and Recycling Day for Employees

To celebrate Earth Day, JK is encouraging its employees to bring in any personal documents and electronics they want to securely dispose of and recycle throughout the week.

These physical thefts and loss of assets occur most often in the office and not from homes or personal vehicles. There […]
