Philadelphia Hard Drive Destruction
You’ll find sensitive information in your paper records, but your electronic records hold confidential information too. Your hard drives need to be destroyed before they leave your possession. This is required for compliance with privacy laws nationally and across Pennsylvania, including HIPAA. Just deleting your 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-site or at a secure plant. The pieces are shredding and then melted down for metal recycling. This is absolute destruction.
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.
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 being sent off to the recyclers. These devices store digital images of what has been scanned that information and can be recovered.
