The Importance of Destructing Media
We view car insurance as a need for anyone operating a vehicle in Canada. If you didn’t have it, you may end up in a lot of trouble financially and legally. It’s a no brainer!
So why do we take the risk with the security of our data. This mistake proved devastating for patients of University Hospitals in Cleveland when a hard drive was stolen that contained names, home addresses, medical records, insurance information, health information and patient treatment, and social security numbers. Although the hospital apologized for the data breach and prepared an action plan for future prevention of this problem, the result of this may be life long for those patients.
BEST Shredding wants to spread awareness of not only shredding confidential documents, but securely destroying hard drives and other media containing confidential or sensitive information. We are one of the only companies in Canada that offers NAID AAA Certified Media Destruction Services. All of the BEST Shredding mobile trucks have an on board hard drive and media punch. Once your media has been punched it is impossible to retrieve the data but we will then shred the media as an extra precaution.
Don’t just insure your car, insure the protection of your customers, patients, employees and family’s information by calling BEST Shredding.
