As technology progresses, so do the practices of criminals out to make financial gains from your entity’s protected financial and personal records. If you think that banks are the only targets for hackers, you are severely mistaken. Valuable information can be stolen for the financial gain of a hacker from several different industries.
During an equipment overhaul, if the proper asset disposition steps aren’t taken, the financial damages and their tarnished reputation may be nearly impossible to recover from. Find out if your business is a potential target for a cyber-attack and why you should rely on data destruction services to ensure the safety of your customers and business!
The information your hospital or physician’s office holds on its computers can cause a lot of damage to your patients and location if there is even the slightest data breach. The healthcare industry is one of the highest-ranking industries for a breach because it generally relies on security systems that are deemed to be outdated. If cybercriminals are able to easily hack into a health-related database, imagine how vulnerable unencrypted information is when it’s just resting on an unused hard drive.
Save your business the high cost of paying for breach losses, reputation damage, and financial compensation by taking the secure steps towards safety with an official asset disposition service.
What would a breach list be without mentioning banks, credit unions, and related financial institutions? Even if your financial institution passed its required penetration testing by the FDIC, the facts are clear, 1 in 3 financial institutions are effectively breached by hackers.
Your business’ data has all of the information a hacker needs to start pulling from your financial resources. The data destruction team at RetirePC can help your bank secure its information and ensure a safe and smooth transfer to its new equipment.
