Why It's Not Enough to Just Erase Digital Data

Just about every business stores some type of confidential information on hard drives, such as sensitive emails, customer invoices, internal budget sheets, and even personnel files. When this information is no longer needed, it can be erased from the device, but some data fragments stay behind. A skilled data recovery expert (or a vigilant identity thief) can restore most or all of that erased data. That’s why erasing a hard drive and throwing it in the trash isn’t a secure method of disposal. Our HIPAA compliant hard drive destruction is the only way to guarantee your personal digital information is erased for good.

How Does On-Site Hard Drive Destruction Work?

If you’re wondering how to destroy a hard drive beyond recognition, the answer is to shred it professionally. At PROSHRED® New York, we have mobile shredders that are transported to your location. All of your media and devices are shredded on site as you watch, and you’ll receive a certificate of destruction giving you documentation of the date and time the service took place. Once your hard drives, CDs, or other materials are destroyed, we transport that electronic waste for final processing in a recycling facility.
