It’s critical to take precautions when removing old and outdated hard drives from your Michigan office or home, as you don’t want your information to fall into the wrong hands. Data can be easily recovered from old, unused, discarded, and even formatted hard drives by identity thieves and fraudsters. Wiping data from a hard drive doesn’t always mean the information is permanently erased. While it may appear to be more cost-effective to remove or destroy the drives yourself, you risk having your data retrieved and misused, which in the long run can leave you with costly legal matters.
Hiring a certified shredding company that specializes in shredding electronic data storage media such as hard drives, USBs, and CDs is the most secure way to protect your data. Shredding companies, such as ElectroCycle, not only have access to cutting-edge shredding technology to ensure that your media is completely destroyed and the data is unrecoverable, but they are also NAID AAA certified, ensuring that they meet all legal and contractual data destruction requirements.
Secure Hard Drive Shredding
It’s unsettling to consider that your personal information may easily fall into the hands of crooks waiting for the right chance to commit identity theft or fraud. It’s a good thing that shredding companies exist because they have all the necessary knowledge and equipment to avoid such crimes from happening in the first place. Aside from shredding hard drives, they can also physically destroy CDs, USBs, and even cassette tapes. It’s easy to forget that these devices should not be recycled or thrown away without ensuring complete data destruction. A certified information security company like ElectroCycle will destroy and dispose of any device containing sensitive information with the utmost care.
