Hard Drive Destruction Services in New York
It’s not just your paper files that contain classified and sensitive information. Your hard drives also store this type of info, and need to be destroyed before they leave your possession. This is required for compliance with New York state and federal privacy laws, including HIPAA.
A common misconception is that by deleting your files you are erasing them forever, but that is not the case. Ghost files are still imprinted on your hard drive once the original files have been deleted, and the information can easily be recovered with free software.
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.
To be sure your information is destroyed, there is no better way than to physically destroy the hard drive. New York Document Shredding offers hard drive destruction service options that can be done at your location or at a secure plant in New York City. Your hard drive is shredded to bits, and the pieces are melted down for metal recycling. This is a destruction process you can count on.
Hard drives are not only found in computers. Don’t forget all of the hidden hard drives in your office. Copy machines and fax machines 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 those images can be recovered. Magnetic media of all kinds must be destroyed. This includes CDs, tapes, hard drives and more.
