I am as paranoid as the next person.
My office has two shredders, a confidentiality bin with a certification that the contents are burned, and is regularly swept for bugs. There is heavy use of freenet and truecrypt, a number of phones can be found on my desk and I speak a made up language called typo-speak. And of course I have a number of identities.
