Media & Hard Drive Shredding: Because There’s No Such Thing as “Erasing” Digital Data

Whether you’re a small business owner or a large corporation you work hard to minimize risks to your organization.  The risks associated with security breach are real—not only for your sake and the sake of your customers, but because regulations like HIPAA, FACTA and Graham-Leach-Bliley require you protect confidential information no matter what format it’s stored in.  That’s why we offer complete, secure digital media destruction.

Compared to paper, digital media and hard drives can store an enormous amount of data in a relatively small space.  And much to the relief of anyone who has ever suffered through a hard drive crash, just as the technology for storing data has improved, so has the ability to recover digitally-stored data.  It’s a great thing for users, but dangerous for data protection and privacy.

With the advent of identity theft and its ascendance as the financial crime of choice for opportunists, it is not adequate to simply delete this information from hard drives or other digital media before they’re discarded.  There is no such thing as “erasing” data—even after deletion, it can still be extracted by sophisticated and determined individuals.  So for total data protection and to prevent data theft, it’s necessary to shred hard drives and digital media before disposal, just like you do with paper.
