Is Your Minnesota Company Destroying and Disposing of Hard Drives Properly?

Throughout the state of Minnesota, many businesses are in need of proper paper shredding to eliminate sensitive information from the risks of identity theft. While having your documents professionally destroyed is important, many businesses do not realize that old hard drives should be destroyed as well. Too many people believe that just erasing and reformatting a hard drive will take care of removing all the private information. However, even when you do all of that, you are still vulnerable to data breaches, thus putting you and your business at risk.Be 100% Sure By Getting Your Hard Drive Destroyed
