LOOKING FOR HARD DRIVE SHREDDING & SECURE DATA DESTRUCTION IN WASHINGTON, DC METRO AREA?
ERevival DC Provides Secure Data Destruction & Hard Drive Shredding of Hard Drives, Tape & Magnetic Media in Washington, DC, Metro area, Northern Virginia (NOVA), and Baltimore region.
Did you know that formatting a hard drive is not considered secure data destruction? The previous data can be recovered off the hard drive sometimes in a few simple steps.
The solution to the secure data destruction problem used by most computer recyclers is Department of Defense (DOD) standards software. This software rewrites data several times. This makes it difficult to recover original data. Note the term “difficult” not “impossible”. Depending on the nature of your business and the laws that govern it such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) you’ll probably want secure data destruction that is 100% secure. The solution to that is ERevival DC’s Hard Drive Data Shredding.
ERevival DC is an EPA and NJDEP registered Universal Waste Handler and has a Data Shredding solution for 100% secure data destruction. We don’t just delete data or rewrite data on hard drives, tapes, magnetic media, but we physically destroy it, hence the term “data shredding” or “hard drive shredding”.
SECURE DATA DESTRUCTION WITH VERIFIABLE PROOF
Unlike most competitors, we take secure data destruction very seriously. We don’t just provide you with a “Certificate of Destruction” which states “Storage media was picked up from (Client’s name) and destroyed and data cannot be recovered.” This does not prove anything, you have no record of which storage media was destroyed or shredded.
ERevival DC provides you with a Certificate of Destruction along with a Serial Number log for all hard drives that we shred and destroy.
What if your organization is charged with breaking privacy laws? If you only have a “Certificate of Destruction” you have no evidence that you had specific hard drives destroyed or shredded. However, if you have our Serial Number log along with our Certificate of Destruction you will be free from liabilities of those hard drives listed in the Serial Number log. This proves that DOD secure data destruction standards were used and provides you with the extra security you need when it comes to adhering to privacy laws.
