Hard Drive Destruction Services
These days, businesses store a lot of confidential information electronically. But does your business have a secure plan for destroying your old data and hard drives? Whether you’re switching to a different system that requires hardware replacements or your hard drives are simply too old to do the job anymore, proper disposal of hardware is increasingly important for proper data security. Things like sensitive emails, invoices, budgetary numbers, and internal documentation shouldn’t be left out for anyone to access. All it takes is one leak of confidential information to hurt your reputation, as well as result in revenue loss. Contact PROSHRED® Northern New Jersey today for secure hard drive destruction.
Why Erasing Your Data is Not Enough
You may think that simply erasing and reformatting your hard drive is enough to ensure the data stored on there is gone forever. Unfortunately, if a hard drive is still physically intact, the information you just erased can still be reconstructed and breached. Simply erasing and discarding hard drives, CDs, or thumb drives isn’t enough for data security. The only way to safeguard your sensitive information permanently is to physically destroy your hard drives with professional shredding services.
