Hard Drive Destruction and Data Security
Hard Drive Destruction
A hammer doesn’t destroy information…
Many times people are misinformed to think beating on the outside of a hard drive and smashing it thin will make the hard drive unreadable. This concept is simply not true.
Within a hard drive are two elements that factor to the availability of the information stored there. The platters of the hard drive are the physical element that stores the drive’s information and there is also a magnetic field that renders information readable.
We offer secure hard drive destruction.
The destruction process includes shredding the drives down to 2”- 3” pieces destroying the platters. The second step to the process includes degaussing, this eliminates an unwanted magnetic field thus rendering the hard drive unusable…forever.
Our Hard Drive Destruction Services includes a Certificate of Hard Drive Destruction complete with serial numbers and date of destruction.
This is your proof that you have fulfilled your responsibility to your customers, students or patients to protect and maintain confidentiality of their records and information. This method is in compliance with all Federal Security Laws such as FACTA & HIPAA.
