A single hard drive holds thousands of files, many of which contain sensitive material. Even after a file is “deleted,” it remains on the drive. The same is true of “deleted” emails and records of all online activity. So simply throwing away your old hard drive is dangerous. If some of that information – bank account info, financial records, Social Security numbers, vital business and personal information, old emails, etc. – fell into the wrong hands, it could be detrimental to both you and your business.
So what is a reliable and safe way to handle hard drive destruction?
Data-recovery technology continues to advance by leaps and bounds. There are many techniques and tools on the market that allow the recovery of information from seriously damaged drives. Because of this, the NSA has developed guidelines that require hard drives to be degaussed (demagnetized) and incinerated or otherwise physically damaged prior to disposal.
One way to ensure that the above happens is to entrust the destruction of your sensitive electronics to a professional, like Enoch Office Equipment.
