For any business that stores private or personal information on servers or computer systems, having the proper data destruction methods are a must. As technology continues to improve, many businesses are transitioning to data storage via cloud-based applications and stepping away from traditional hard drive storage. Even when a company has not made that transition, old hard drives tend to accumulate due to technology updates, personnel changes, and other processes that render hard drives obsolete.
Many people believe they can keep their information safe by simply deleting files from the computer or erasing them from a hard drive after the transition to cloud-based applications. Unfortunately, this is not enough to keep any information safe. Thieves can still access your confidential information even after it has been “wiped” from a hard drive, and do-it-yourself methods often cause more harm than good. If your company isn’t properly disposing of hard drives, the business is at higher risk of becoming vulnerable to data breaches and identity theft. To protect you, your employees, clients, and business, it is necessary to consider the benefits of mobile hard drive shredding.
