Hard Drive Destruction

If you’re not using a secure destruction method, your business is at risk

You have a legal obligation to keep the private information of your customers, employees and business secure. Stay compliant by using Shred-it Hard Drive Destruction for obsolete data storage:

Hard Drive Destruction

  • redundant computer hard drives
  • retired server hard drives
  • unused flash drives & external hard drives
  • photocopier hard drives
It may seem easy to store old hard drives and flash drives in a drawer or box them up in the supply closet. But even if hard drives are under lock and key, you’re still vulnerable. As long as the drives are physically intact, all private information can be retrieved.
Just as importantly, if you erase, reformat, wipe or degauss the drives, you and your customers are still vulnerable because private information can be retrieved from them.

Shred-it provides a secure chain of custody by:

  1. Logging and documenting the manufacturer serial number of each device before destroying your hard drives and providing a copy of the log for your records
  2. Providing the service at your location or securely transporting your hard drives to our facility
  3. Completely destroying the drive platters, rippling and fracturing the magnetic surfaces and rendering the drive data unrecoverable
  4. Sending an itemized Certificate of Destruction for your files following destruction
  5. Partnering with recyclers across North America, helping to reduce your carbon footprint
