Data Destruction Services

Data Wiping

The threat of identity theft means that destruction of old media, such as hard drives, CD’s and backup tapes is a serious concern. You’re the only one responsible for the proper disposal of your sensitive data. Overwriting and degaussing hard drives, tapes and other magnetic media is no longer the solution. According to a recent audit performed by the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, sensitive information was found on internal computer hard drives that had been certified as “wiped” clean prior to disposal. To be certain that all data are irrecoverable, physical destruction is the only viable choice.

Whether your computer is at home and contains personal, financial and private information or your organization stores records containing trade secrets, health, financial banking, or other confidential and classified information the destruction of your data should be your first priority when preparing to refresh or renew your electronic assets.
