How Secure Data Destruction Los Angeles Services Help You
You can have data saved by way of electronic methods or paper documents. Electronic media include laptops, PCs, tablets, cell phones, and even gaming consoles. Each time you sell the media or deliver it for recycling, you risk the leaking of sensitive information. The secure Data Destruction Los Angeles services use DOD-compliant and HIPAA-compliant methods to securely erase the hard drive data so that the information cannot be accessed. Depending on your hard drive disposal needs, we may also shred the platters and dispose of the shards according to HIPAA regulations. Documents containing confidential information pass through secure paper shredding cross-cutting devices that reduce them to one-centimeter strips.
Highly Innovative Solutions for Effective Data Disposal
To protect sensitive information on hard drives, you must use thorough 7-pass or 11-pass hard drive wiping solutions that make it impossible to read the data. At the secure Data Destruction Los Angeles facility, we use the Green Pulse® Data Annihilator and military standard degaussing processes to wipe hard drives. If needed, we may also use the conical-shaped punch machines to deform the hard drives. Later, we dispatch all e-waste for disposal according to HIPAA regulations. And, provide you with the mandatory Certificate of Destruction to keep your business protected.
