Hard Drive Destruction Services in Fort Lauderdale
Your paper files contain sensitive information, but your hard drives and electronic media does too. To ensure your information isn’t stolen off of your hard drives, they need to be destroyed completely before they leave your possession. This is required for compliance with Florida state and federal privacy laws including HIPAA. Just deleting your files is not sufficient to destroy the information. It can be easily recovered with free software.
To be sure the information is destroyed, there is no better way than to physically destroy the hard drive. Fort Lauderdale Shredding Service provides hard drive destruction service options that can be done on site or at a secure plant. After your hardware is broken down to pieces, the bits are melted down for metal recycling. This is absolute destruction.
And don’t forget all of the hidden hard drives in your office. Copy machines and fax machines also have hard drives that must be shredded before they are sent off to the recyclers. These store digital images of what has been scanned and that information can be recovered.
Electronic data can still be recovered even after it is destroyed, and this is due to improper destruction. Hard drive data shredding ensure complete destruction of all information once stored on the drive.
The process is rather simple:
- Drop off the hard drives or have them picked up
- The drives are destroyed in an industrial shredder
- A certificate of Destruction is sent
A certificate of destruction ensures you that your hard drives were, in fact, destroyed completely. So, you can rest easy knowing you are secure.
