I have always known that ‘paper’ is an expensive and time consuming way of collecting, sharing,¬†storing and retrieving information. I recall us all going out to buy document shredders to protect us from Ne’er do wells rooting through our dustbins (sorry – trash cans) to get hold of our personal information until weak or unprotected digital documents made it much easier to harvest and profit from our data.

But I didn’t realise until my son sent me the link to this news clip that even those paper documents which we all copy, as individuals and businesses, are a gift to the global black market in illicit data trading.

Take 5 minutes and watch this.
