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 and cannot fall into the wrong hands.
Why does data destruction is Important?
You can’t be sure your old data is deleted successfully without a DDC. This is because the
process takes place under strict security measures – it’s not as simple as deleting a file from a
computer or memory stick. Nor should you shred hardware because that leaves too much room
for error and incomplete removal. Data destruction is important for organizations, as it
prevents data from being used for wrong purposes. Properly disposing of no longer-needed
data can reduce your cyber risk. Old hard drives that haven’t been accounted for may contain
corporate financial records, personal employee information, or other privileged data that could
be accessed in a data breach. If an outdated storage device contains any sensitive data, then it
must be comprehensively destroyed or rendered untraceable.
Why Not Just Destroy the Data Yourself?
To protect your personal or business information, you delete old files. It’s the steps most
people do take and think that’s good enough. You deleted the scan of a customer’s driver’s
license taken before selling a new car. At home, you scanned your passport application so that
you had a copy until your passport arrived. You have your passport now and delete the file. This
isn’t enough. If you think deleting files destroys your data, you’re wrong.
For the proper destruction of your data, you must have to contact a firm which gives service of
data destruction. Here I mentioned the great company which I know about data destruction is
GreenTek Solutions,LLC. GreenTek Solutions is your nationwide partner when it’s time to buy,
sell, dispose of or recycle your IT assets, including Cisco, EMC and Netapp products, like storage
devices, servers and data centers.
