Hard Drive Destruction in New Brunswick
It’s not just your paper records that contain classified and sensitive information. Your hard drives also store this type of info, and they need to be completely destroyed before they get into the wrong hands. This is required for compliance with New Jersey and federal privacy laws, including HIPAA.
A common misconception is that by deleting your files you are erasing them forever. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Ghost files are still imprinted on your hard drive after the original files have been deleted, and the information can easily be recovered with free software.
To be sure your information is destroyed, there is no better way than to physically destroy your hard drive. New Brunswick Shredding Service’s network offers hard drive destruction services that can be done at your location or at a secure plant in Middlesex. Your hard drive is completely shredded, and the pieces are melted down for metal recycling. This is total 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 overall 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.
When gathering all of the hard drives from around your office, don’t forget about all the hidden hard drives. 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.
