Hard Drive Destruction

Looking For Hard Drive Destruction Services?

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.

Your old Hard Drive and USBs Could Break Your Business

Simply erasing, reformatting or wiping a drive does not ensure your clients, customers or patients are safe from a privacy breach. As long as the drive is still intact, your private information can be retrieved.

Certificate of Destruction (CoD)

Following every hard drive destruction service, PROSHRED® is committed to providing you peace of mind with a Certificate of Destruction.

Proper destruction of confidential information in any form requires the end-of-service procedure of providing a Certificate of Destruction to the client proving that in fact shredding of specific documents took place at a certain date and time.

What information will be specified in the Certificate of Destruction?

The Certificate of Destruction document certifies to our clients with:

  • Date of the On-site Destruction
  • PROSHRED®'s information (location, address and phone number)
  • Information of the company who requested the service
  • Description of the service performed (paper shredding, hard drive destruction, product destruction)
  • Name of the CSP (Customer Service Professional) who shredded the material
  • Name of the company's employee who witnessed the destruction and processed it for recycling
