Philadelphia Hard Drive Destruction
Your paper files contain sensitive information, but so does your electronic data. Hard drives are often forgotten as a source of leaked private information, but that just makes them all the more tantalizing to identity thieves.
To keep you, your family and your Philadelphia business safe, be sure to destroy your hard drives completely before they leave your possession. The destruction of your hard drives and other electronic media (USB thumb drives, cell phones, etc.), is required for compliance with Pennsylvania and national privacy laws including HIPAA.
There are mainly three reasons why hard drive shredding is a better solution.
- Security: there is a focus on keeping data secure through the whole process. The process complies with regulations, such as HIPAA, and maintaining clear form of confidentiality.
- Time Efficiency: the process focuses on your needs, so you can drop off your hard drives or, depending on local providers, simply have someone come pick them up.
- Cost: The entire process is easy and affordable. Most hard drive shredding services cost about $4-$12 per drive. The cost incurred go towards completely covering electronic assets.
To be sure the information is destroyed there is no better way than to physically destroy the hard drive. Deleting your files is not good enough—free software exists that allows the extraction of deleted files, so people can still access the information.
Fortunately, Philadelphia Document Shredding offers hard drive destruction service options that can be completed on-site or at a secure Philadelphia plant. Our contractors shred your hard drives to pieces and melt down the scraps for metal recycling. This is total destruction.
Hard drives are not only found in computers. Don’t forget all of the hidden hard drives in your office. Copy machines, fax machines and scanners all have hard drives that must be shredded before they are sent off to the recyclers. These devices store digital images of what has been scanned, and those images can be recovered. Magnetic media of all kinds must be destroyed as well. This includes CDs, tapes, and hard drives.
