Computers are an essential part of how we do business today. From financial statements to emails and photos, your computer’s hard disk drive (HDD) is a trove of valuable private information. As one of the fastest growing crimes in Indianapolis, identity thieves are now targeting old, outdated technology and stripping it of personal data. When your computers, cell phones, and other devices are at the end of their life, it is important that the physical storage component (the HDD) is completely destroyed.
Why Shred Obsolete Hard Drives?
Most businesses understand the risk they can incur with a leak of their printed documents – but it is also crucial to destroy this information at the source: their computer hard drives. Conscious tech users know that protecting their data is one of the most important things they can do on a daily basis. Unlike physical documents, hard drives contain thousands of highly sensitive pieces of information – meaning that a single breach can be catastrophic. Simply deleting your old data isn’t enough to keep hackers out. In fact, individuals skilled in data retrieval can easily access deleted material on your drives or memory units. The ultimate defense is the physical destruction of these devices.
