What’s on Your Hard Drives?
A single hard drive can store enough confidential data to fill a library. Even when information is deleted from a hard drive, it can still be recovered by tech-savvy criminals hoping to gain access to valuable information. The only way to completely eradicate proprietary data from your hard drives is through physical destruction.
The Data Vault’s hard drive destruction service offers your business a secure solution for preventing the theft of digital data stored on your media devices. Need to destroy other types of digital media? We offer media destruction for other digital devices too.
Whether you need a one-time hard drive shredding service or are looking for a reliable scheduled service, we’re here to help.
On-Site Hard Drive Destruction
Our on-site hard drive destruction service provides added data protection for your business. All hard drive shredding takes place right on your property while you watch. Our state-of-the-art mobile hard drive shredding vehicle, “The Data Shark,” can destroy hundreds of hard drives per hour. In our heavy-duty shredder, your hard drives are broken into tiny particles that are impossible to reconstruct. You receive a Certificate of Destruction when your shredding project is completed, and all shredded material is responsibly recycled following destruction.
The Data Vault is committed to protecting your information. Our shredding technicians have passed extensive background checks and undergo regular drug screening. We take every precaution to make sure your hard drives don’t fall into the wrong hands. To keep them safe until destruction, locked collection bins are delivered to your business so employees can quickly drop drives inside for later shredding. These tamper-resistant containers are bar coded, scanned and tracked, following a strict chain of custody during every stage of the hard drive destruction process.
If your company collects and stores medical, financial or other consumer information, you may be required to adhere to state and federal privacy laws governing how you handle that information. Luckily, The Data Vault’s hard drive shredding service, with our team of experts, can help keep your business compliant. Our hard drive destruction methods meet National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) and Department of Defense (DoD) requirements, and fully comply with the following laws:
- Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
- Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB)
- FACTA Disposal Rule
- Bank Secrecy Act
- Patriot Act of 2001
- Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act
- US Safe Harbor Provisions
- PCI Data Security Standard
We offer a detailed audit trail that includes the manufacturer identification information, model, and serial number of your destroyed hard drives. All information is added to your Certificate of Destruction for proof of compliance.
