The vast majority of businesses has gone digital. Gone are the days of having all your documents in a file cabinet or desk drawer. Because of this, many business owners think their information is much safer since it’s not on a tangible piece of paper. What they don’t know is that one computer hard drive can hold more sensitive personal and professional information than a whole stack of papers. Even if you “delete” files off your computer or wipe your hard drive before getting rid of it, some of your information still remains accessible to hackers through the hard drive. If accessed, people have the ability to steal your identity, business information, and confidential patient and client information, which could result in a lawsuit. There’s really only one way to make sure your sensitive information is truly destroyed, and that’s hard drive destruction. With hard drive destruction, you can have peace of mind knowing that every bit of information has been securely and reliably destroyed for good.
