Why Secure Destruction of Hard Drives Matters
For businesses, maintaining a reputation for information security is critical, and a company’s ability to transport and destroy data safely is closely tied to the loyalty and trust of their customers. Storing memory has become much easier with digital data storage solutions like CDs, floppy discs, and hard drives, but when hard data and documents are not properly destroyed, the risk of identity theft increases exponentially. Coinciding with the advancements in data storage technology, business are using faster and more secure solutions like solid-state hard drives (SSDs) and flash storage drives to store information. If you still have an old hard drive that you want to replace with a faster, lighter, and more compact SSD, there is a good chance you might want to get rid of the old one. However, getting rid of an old hard drive can seriously compromise the private or sensitive information stored on that drive, which is why it’s so important to know the best way to destroy an old hard drive.
