Omaha Hard Drive Destruction
It is not just paper that has sensitive information. Your hard drives also need to be destroyed before they leave your possession. This is required for compliance with federal and Nebraska 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 your information is destroyed, the best way is to physically destroy the entire hard drive. Hard drive destruction can be done on-site or at a secure Omaha plant. The pieces are shredded and then melted down for metal recycling. This is absolute destruction.
There are mainly three reasons why hard drive shredding is a better solution.
- Security: there is a focus on keeping data secure through the whole process. The process complies with regulations, such as HIPAA, and maintaining clear form of confidentiality.
- Time Efficiency: the process focuses on your needs, so you can drop off your hard drives or, depending on local providers, simply have someone come pick them up.
- Cost: The entire process is easy and affordable. Most hard drive shredding services cost about $4-$12 per drive. The cost incurred go towards completely covering electronic assets.
And 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 the information can be recovered if not destroyed properly.
