Protecting business information is now more important than ever! Computers are storing large amounts of data, and these numbers continue to increase as the digital world becomes more popular. For businesses, it is crucial to make every effort possible to safeguard customer, employee, and business information. If confidential data fell into the wrong hands, your business could face a security breach, a loss of sales, large fines, and a damaged reputation.
Hard Drive Destruction Techniques
Hard Drive Destruction is a great way to ensure data stored on your computer is completely eliminated and cannot be restored. However, there are several options when it comes to hard drive destruction. How do you make sure your company chooses the most secure method?
There are three main techniques when it comes to hard drive destruction: Punching, Wiping, and Shredding. Each has its key differences:
Punching – Machine punches the equipment, leaving a hole in the hard drive
Wiping – A computer software is used to “clear” the data off the hard drive
Shredding – Destruction process is used to slice hard drive into small pieces
In comparison, the only way to make sure your hard drive is 100% destroyed is through a professional shredding company. Hard drive punching leaves a single hole in the hard drive, in no way destroying it completely. Hard drive wiping physically has no impact on the hard drive and thus, information may still be accessible. With hard drive shredding, your hard drive is securely destroyed, and all company information stored on your computer is 100% erased.
