    If you see a nonfamiliar face in the access-controlled areas of the office without the proper identification, the correct course of action would be to escort the person to security and raise a security incident. This ensures that the person is properly handled and investigated by the security team, as their presence in restricted areas without proper identification could pose a security risk. It is important to take responsibility and follow the necessary protocols to maintain the safety and security of the office environment.

    B. Shred using a shredder
    Explanation
    Proper disposal of sensitive documents, such as custom design documents, is crucial to prevent unauthorized access to confidential information. Shredding the document using a shredder ensures that it's irreversibly destroyed, making it unreadable and safeguarding against potential data breaches. This practice adheres to security protocols and helps maintain confidentiality. Simply discarding or reusing the document without proper destruction could pose security risks.
