Protecting sensitive information is not just about paper shredding, properly destructing media or hard drives is equally as important. Your overall information security program requires that you securely destruct your media. On a single hard drive you can have employee, customer and business information stored that could potentially harm your business if put in the wrong hands.
Simply deleting the data on a hard drive does not adequately destroy the information. Large amounts of data that is stored on hard drives must be destroyed using destruction tools that are certified.
The BEST Shredding mobile fleet is equipped with an on board media punch. The machine physically punches a hole through the media. This step ensures that the data cannot be accessed again. To ensure that we are taking all measures necessary to destroy the hard drive, BEST Shredding then shreds the media and recycles the material.
BEST Shredding destructs the following:
- Hard Drives
- DLP Tapes
- Floppy Disks
- and many other types of electronic media devices.
