Why is Guaranteed Data Destruction Important?
A simple look in recent news stories shows how damaging data can be when in the hands of online criminals. Even large companies like Uber and Yahoo have faced data breaches that cost their businesses millions in their overall budgets and left their reputations quite damaged.
Even one hard drive out of thousands is enough to drag your institution through the mud. Play it safe and trust a data destruction company to ensure your business’ privacy.
Can’t I Just Wipe My Hard Drive?
Sure, there is software out on the market that can clear off a hard drive for users who intend to re-use them within an organization. However, if you are completely unloading your equipment, this is not a safe option. Even with wiping software, up to 78 percent of hard drives still have data that can be accessed by savvy criminals.
Even Physical DIY Can Be Recovered
Some businesses may be tempted to destroy hard drives on their own through smashing or drilling holes through the materials. Not only is this a serious health hazard, but this is simply impractical.
Asset disposition is something that must be approached professionally and with caution. While it may be fun to imagine smashing up your hard drives in the parking lot of your business, it isn’t enough to keep you safe.
Through DIY physical destruction, the hard drives are rendered useless, but it wouldn’t take much work for a professional criminal to piece the puzzle back together for their benefit.
