Secure Data Destruction
in Sacramento, CA

As many as 53% of businesses don’t use a professional service to destroy old hard drives, USBs or other hardware that contain confidential information. Only physical destruction ensures the data on an old hard drive is 100% destroyed.

If your hard drive disposal process includes erasing, reformatting, wiping or degaussing old hard drives, you and your customers are still vulnerable. In fact, as long as the drives are physically intact, all private information can be retrieved.

“The service your company provides is always positive. Your employees are always willing to go the extra step to make sure we have everything we need.”

E-waste Recycling Options

Data destruction must be done whenever materials with storage media change hands or are disposed of. Paper, hard drives, and other storage media contain private data that must be destroyed to prevent crime. Failure to destroy this data is a serious breach of confidentiality and will likely place the company at risk of financial liability, prosecution and public disgrace.
