Hard Drive Destruction in St Louis
Paper files are not the only place you will find your sensitive information in St Louis. Your hard drives also contain confidential information about you, your family and your business, and need to be destroyed before they leave your possession. This is required for compliance with Missouri and federal privacy laws, including HIPAA. Just deleting files is not sufficient to destroy the information. It can be easily recovered with free software.
To be sure the information is destroyed there is no better way than to physically destroy the hard drive. Hard drive destruction can be done on your site or at a secure plant near you. The pieces are then melted down for metal recycling. This is absolute destruction.
Don’t forget about all of the hidden hard drives in your office. Copy machines and fax machines also 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 that information can be recovered. Therefore, it is critical to ensure all electronic information is secure through proper destruction services.
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.
