Why Hard Drive Destruction is Necessary

Hard Drive Destruction

In today’s information age, more and more businesses are storing their sensitive and proprietary information on hard drives. However, keeping that information safe is not as easy as you may think. To avoid any breach of security that could result in theft of confidential information, hard drive destruction is necessary.

Every business has a duty to keep confidential and highly sensitive data safe. Whether it’s emails, invoices, proprietary data, client contact information, budgetary numbers or other internal documents, it’s essential to protect it from getting into the wrong hands.

It’s not enough to erase data from hard drives. Simply erasing information from a hard drive will not eliminate it from being accessed by an expert in information retrieval. The only way to ensure your sensitive information can’t be accessed is to use a secure hard drive destruction service.

No matter the type of business you’re in, law firms, medical facilities, educational institutions, even a small business, it’s crucial to shred confidential data and be compliant with privacy regulations. Obtaining a certificate of destruction post shredding is the final step for full compliance with privacy laws like HIPAA, HITECH, FACTA and GLBA.
