Why Erasing Data on Hard Drives Isn’t Enough Protection

The information your business saves on hard drives may not be as secure as you think, especially on obsolete devices you no longer use. Whenever a hard drive or storage device has met the end of its life, the assumption is that its data will never wind up in anyone else’s hands so why not just throw it away? However, improper disposal can lead to data breaches, identify fraud, and a host of issues your company doesn’t want affecting its data security or reputation. Even when hard drives are erased, the fragments of data can still be gathered by diligent thieves. The most secure way to dispose of hard drives and avoid a security breach is to use a professional shredding service.

Could Old Hard Drives, Discs, or USBs Cause a Security Breach?

Once a hard drive is no longer used by an employee, it can become easy to lose track of it. Keeping an eye on data stored on smaller devices, such as CDs or USB thumb drives, is even more difficult. Eventually, these devices wind up thrown into an unsecured waste or recycling bin. Mobile hard drive shredding from PROSHRED® Milwaukee eliminates that privacy risk. We use trucks with industrial shredders that can process and destroy entire pieces of equipment at once. We maintain a secure chain of custody throughout the appointment, from pick-up to final processing, and every hard drive shredding customer receives a certificate of destruction. Whether you’re a law firm, medical facility, financial organization, educational institution, or any type of small or medium business, we make sure your hard drive destruction services comply with the privacy laws affecting your business, such as HIPAA, HITECH, FACTA, and GLBA.
