Hard Drive and Media Destruction
PROTECT ELECTRONIC DATA FROM THEFT
Keeping up with the pace of technological change is a crucial business challenge regardless of the industry you work in. Unfortunately, data thieves have discovered that confidential personal and corporate information is often left on old PCs, flash drives or other electronic media as firms update their existing systems. What can companies do to ensure crucial data doesn't end up in the wrong hands?
Even if you use software which claims to permanently erase data on hard drives there is still only one foolproof way of ensuring that the risk of a costly security breach has been prevented and that is to use Shred-it’s secure solution to protect electronic data.
How our Secure Hard Drive Destruction Process Works
Our unique information destruction process guarantees that 100% of data stored is rendered irretrievable.
Shred-it’s cutting edge technology drills through the hard disk’s spindle causing the platter to ripple and tear making data retrieval impossible and providing total peace of mind
Destroyed hard drives are sent to Shred-it’s UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) approved partner for further shredding and recycling
Customers are provided with an itemised Certificate of Destruction to give total peace of mind
Technology Targeted by Data Thieves
In addition to hard drives, Shred-it also accepts the following electronic media for secure data destruction and disposal:
Backup Magnetic Tapes
Floppy Disks and CDs / DVDs
USB Flash Drives / Memory Sticks
Wiping or degaussing hard drives is not 100% effective. Confidential information can still be restored by the most diligent of identity and data thieves as well as leaving companies at risk of prosecution for their failure to protect private data.
