Nowadays, the information businesses store on hard drives is not as safe as you think. Whenever a hard drive is ready to end its life, many people just assume that its stored information will never be in anyone else’s hands. However, this is not the case. The best way to avoid a security breach is to use a hard drive destruction service to ensure confidential and highly sensitive data is uncompromised – including emails, invoices, budgetary numbers and other internal documents. You can count on PROSHRED® to assure your hard drive will be disposed of the right way.
Erasing Data Is Not Enough
Do not expect that data will be free from theft after simply erasing information from a hard drive. That data can still be accessed by someone well-versed in information retrieval, which can lead to a major security breach. The only way to ensure your sensitive information cannot be accessed once the hard drive leaves your premises is to use a secure hard drive destruction service.
Get it Done with On-Site Hard Drive Destruction
With PROSHRED’s® secure and confidential hard drive destruction services, we will ensure your hard drives are properly destroyed before being discarded. Our experienced staff will come directly to your business to pick up your hard drives and destroy them right there so you can see the process in action. If you require your hard drives to remain in your custody until they are destroyed, PROSHRED® also offers mobile hard drive shredding. We also provide a detailed certificate of destruction showing the date and time of the hard drive pickup.
Recycling E-Waste And Complying With Legislation
As part of our environmental stewardship, PROSHRED® is committed to making sure each shredded hard drive is delivered to metal and electronics recyclers for further processing. We only send electronic waste to certified recycling partners that comply with federal and state regulations so you can rest easy knowing your information is disposed of safely. Whether you’re a law firm, medical facility, financial organization, educational institution, residential location, or any type of small/medium business, having a certificate of destruction ensures the final step in the shredding process for full compliancy with privacy laws like HIPAA, HITECH, FACTA and GLBA.
