OUCH! Free, Monthly Security Awareness Newsletter Comment from bmyers on 07/12/2012
Identity thieves are getting more professional and investigative. Rather than the old school of hacking passwords, the real professionals do their homework. Fairly quickly, they can use publicly disclosed information to find that one additional fact and then the next. Before long, they have access to confidential and financial records and it's too late.

I may be overly cautious, but we should all shred anything that has more than what someone could find on the Superpages. Here at IC, even after the change in F.E.R.P.A. of December 2011, I'd strongly suggest that students or their parents request that their directory information not be disclosed. You can't have too much protection against that identity thief who wants to find out something more from Ithaca than you want them to know.
