Completely Eliminating your Hard Drive Data
The amount of information stored on a hard drive can represent an enormous quantity of client and personal data. With identity theft becoming commonplace in our world, it is no longer adequate to simply erase this information from hard drives before they’re discarded. Unfortunately, deleting files from a computer hard drive does not erase the data; it only removes the file name from the file directory. Any data – including personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI) – is still very much recoverable. And a determined individual can still extract that data with less than sophisticated methods.
Compliant with regulatory requirements
Destruction is the only secure and sure fire way to eliminate data from a hard drive. Stevens and Stevens’ hard drive destruction services offer a secure and complete method for the disposal of your organization’s hard drives. Our verifiable destruction process adheres to guidelines set forth in the following regulations:
