Media Destruction Services

Document destruction is an excellent step towards information security, but what about the status of your electronic media. What are you doing to protect the vital data stored electronically?

Sadly we live in an age where cyber terrorists and online hackers are real and are threatening companies and individuals on a regular basis, here in Georgia and in the rest of the U.S. technology is continuously changing, and computer advancements are literally happening daily. If your business has hard drives or other electronic media that are no longer of relevance, it’s imperative that you secure it properly. Perhaps you may be looking to update your computer system? Again, it’s important to remember that all information that’s stored on hard drives remains thoroughly protected at the time of disposal. One of the biggest mistakes you can make as a professional is tossing away electronic media before it is securely destroyed. Your hard drives are flooded with a substantial amount of valuable data such as customer and employee information, budgets, marketing plans, contracts, pricing, and much more.

Taking precautionary measures in protecting your confidential data will help to keep your business safe from a data breach, fraud, and identity theft.

Why Consider Media Destruction?

Are you aware that hard drives and other electronic media have become increasingly common sources for information theft?

Data that is stored on hard drives, tapes, and other electronic media isn’t as secure as you might think. In fact, your confidential business information can be recovered information can be from discarded computers or laptops using basic software. Even erased and “degaussed” hard drives can be tampered with to retrieve data.
