Organizations must take precautions to avoid the risk of a data breach from careless storage or improper disposal. It may seem more affordable to destroy hard drives internally, but companies risk the process not being done correctly, which could expose data either by malicious intent or by mistake. The most secure method to destroy hard drive data is to work with a professional who is specialized in the proper destruction of data bearing technology devices.
Many security-conscious businesses require all data to be destroyed prior to computer equipment leaving their facility. This is possible with on-site hard drive shredding.
Onsite data destruction in particular allows companies to reduce their liability as much as possible and meet insurance requirements. When data is destroyed prior to hard drives leaving the premises, any risk that comes from transportation, either by the vendor, a third party, or internal staff, is eliminated. Onsite hard drive shredding services also allow businesses to stay compliant with privacy regulations that many industries are must meet. Destroying data before computers or hard drives leave the facility is ideal for anyone in finance, healthcare, government, or any company that manages and stores sensitive data.
Offsite destruction is also an option for companies who do not require hard drives to be shredded onsite at their location. Lockable security bins are often provided to securely collect and store hard drives, tapes CDs, DVDs, thumb drives, cell phones and other small electronic devices until they can be transported to the secure shredding truck or certified facility.
