Hard Drive Destruction Services in Fountain Valley
Your physical files contain loads of personal and private information, but did you know your hard drives, even if wiped clean, still have traces of confidential info? Your hard drives need to be totally destroyed before they leave your possession. This is required for compliance with federal and California privacy laws including HIPAA. Just deleting the files off of the hard drive is not sufficient to destroy the information. It can still 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. Fountain Valley Paper Shredding’s partners offer hard drive destruction services that can be done on site or at a secure plant in Southern California. Your hard drive is shattered, and then the pieces are melted down for metal recycling. This is absolute destruction.
When gathering your hard drives, don’t forget about all 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 store digital images of what has been scanned, and those images 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.
