Don’t be a victim!

In January 2003, some researchers at MIT bought 158 used, random disk drives from an online store and found that 60% of them had data still intact. Additionally, these same researchers found 5,000 credit card numbers on these disks.

When you decommission a system, you have to do something about the data on that system. It’s not a good idea to just power it down and give it away or sell it on eBay. You need to ensure that all sensitive data cannot be accessed.

It is rare for organizations and companies not to have sensitive information on their hard disks.

It’s the law in Colorado!

Electronics and computer waste

Waste electronics contain heavy metals and other harmful constituents that have the potential to contaminate soil and groundwater if not managed and disposed of properly. Waste electronics and computers from residential and non-residential sources cannot be disposed of in solid waste landfills in Colorado.

Information security

You are ultimately responsible for protecting information stored on the hard drive of your computers, printers and other devices. Simply deleting files and reformatting the hard drive does not guarantee that all of your data will be destroyed.

Data Destruction

Data destruction is the process of destroying data stored on tapes, hard disks and other forms of electronic media so that it is completely unreadable and cannot be accessed or used for unauthorized purposes.
