When the time comes to rid of your old hard drives, it’s important that you are keeping in mind the risks of improper disposal. Information theft and data breaches are occurring all of the time, and while it may seem like a quick and convenient solution to attempt handling this job internally, you are likely to run into some problems along the way. For reliable destruction, electronic shredding should be left to a professional team that has experience performing this service.
Failing to use hard drive destruction services may leave your information susceptible to recovery. An “erased” hard drive is often still accessible if the wrong individual gets a hold of it and uses special software to retrieve the information. To guarantee your security and safety, turn to hard drive shredding services. Security Shredding is your source for effective hard drive destruction services that are carried out at our off-site facility for a very reasonable rate.
Benefits of Hard Drive Shredding
Data is Permanently Removed
As mentioned, criminals can very easily retrieve data that’s left on an “erased” hard drive, partially damaged hard drive, or a hard drive that’s tossed in the garbage. Wiping a hard drive does not mean the information has been removed indefinitely. Physical hard drive shredding through the use of specialized industry equipment is the only method of information removal that clears all data permanently.
Prevent Costly Fines
Organizations are faced with substantial fines if and when they fail to dispose of their electronic information properly. Simply put, a security breach could cost you thousands of dollars in fines depending on the severity. The positive news? This risk is easy to avoid when you hire a professional team to handle the destruction of your hard drives.
Regain Valuable Office Space
Holding on to old hard drives can use a good portion of your office space, especially if you struggle with adequate space, to begin with. In an effort to save both space and time, it is highly recommended that you hire a professional hard drive destruction company like Security Shredding, for service you can trust in.
