Completely Eliminating Your Data with Hard Drive Shredding
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. A determined individual can still extract that data, even with less-than-sophisticated methods.
