Why Is Hard Drive Destruction Necessary for Data Protection?
As more of your information gets stored electronically, data security becomes increasingly important. Electronic security breaches are becoming a commonplace crime, and gigabytes of private documents, spreadsheets, and electronic data can be easily unleashed to the online world. When a computer or other data sensitive device has reached the end of its life cycle, it is of utmost importance that the device’s hard drive is completely destroyed. If this unit is ever stolen, even an unskilled hacker can retrieve highly sensitive information which could jeopardize your or your organization’s information security. The hard drive destruction services we offer in Washington D.C. are as equally beneficial for businesses' data security as they are for government organizations. Do not let your business, department, or agency become the next victim of a cybercrime — destroy your hard drives today.
Why Erasing Your Data Isn’t Enough Security
Simply clicking the “delete” button on a document or media file is not proper information security for hard drives. Even downloading security software and antivirus firewalls won’t protect your data once the device is disconnected, out-of-date, and ready for disposal. Data thieves can still steal fragments of “deleted” data from hard drives if they are not destroyed properly first. Our hard drive destruction process completely obliterates the physical device, permanently deleting the files on it.

Electronic Waste Recycling
