Don’t forget all of the hidden hard drives in your office. Copy machines and fax machines also have hard drives that must be shredded before it is sent off to the recyclers. These store digital images of what has been scanned and can be recovered.
Electronic data can still be recovered even after it is destroyed, and this is due to improper destruction. Hard drive data shredding ensure complete destruction of all information once stored on the drive.
The process is rather simple:
- Drop off the hard drives or have them picked up
- The drives are destroyed in an industrial shredder
- A certificate of Destruction is sent
A certificate of destruction ensures you that your hard drives were, in fact, destroyed completely. So, you can rest easy knowing you are secure.
