Why should you shred old media drives?
Shredding old hard drives or media drives is an important step in protecting your data and preventing identity theft. Even if you no longer need the data on the media drive, it’s possible that the information could still be accessed by someone with malicious intent. By shredding the media drive, you can ensure that your sensitive information is completely destroyed and cannot be retrieved. This is especially important if you are disposing of media drives from a business or organization, as it prevents confidential company data from being exposed. Additionally, shredding media drives helps to protect the environment, as the materials in a drive can be toxic and could contaminate land or water if not disposed of properly. Shredding your old media drives is an important step in protecting your data, your company’s data, and the environment.

Media devices containing sensitive information can be challenging to dispose of securely. Digital and electronic media needs to be properly physically destroyed to be 100% unrecoverable. Although locked containers and magnetic erasing are common practices, information can be still recoverable. Don’t let yourself be subject to a false sense of security by merely ‘wiping’ media devices or throwing your devices in the trash; with the right amount of technological skill, hackers and other unsavory parties can obtain sensitive information on any undestroyed media device.
Measures To Protect The Information
Any company which stores sensitive information is at risk when it comes to disposing of your old media. If your clients have entrusted you with their confidential information, it is your responsibility, by law, to take every possible measure to protect that information. A data leak is not only a huge expense (and a headache!), it can be catastrophic for all parties involved, putting your clients and employees at risk, as well as the overall reputation of your business.
