Baltimore Hard Drive Shredding
Paper is not the only place you find sensitive information at your Baltimore business. Your hard drives also need to be destroyed before they leave your possession. This is required for compliance with privacy laws including HIPAA. Just deleting files is not sufficient to destroy the information. It can 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. Baltimore Shredding Services partners with a network of local contractors who provide hard drive destruction that can be done on site or at a secure plant. The pieces of your hard drive will be melted down for metal recycling. This is absolute destruction.
When collecting the hard drives you want destroyed, don’t forget all of 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 can be recovered.
Magnetic media of all kinds can be destroyed. This includes CDs, tapes, and hard drives.
Not only is hard drive shredding a secure way to handle electronic data, but it is also more environmentally friendly when your hard drive is recycled after shredding. Following the shredding service, the hard drives are disposed of properly, which ensures EPA compliance as well as state hazardous waste requirements.
Immediately following the shredding service, you will receive a certificate of destruction. This is best for maintaining records and ensuring compliance with standard practices. Rest easy knowing your information was properly destroyed, and your information will remain confidential.
