    Hard Drive Destruction Explained

    We’ve all heard of paper shredding services, used to destroy confidential information held on documents. But what about when the information needs to be destroyed from used computers, media and hard drive equipment? A hard drive destruction service or data destruction solutions look at the ways confidential data can be permanently destroyed from equipment such as hard drives. The data could be overwritten or distorted, and equipment can even be physically shred.

    What’s the Importance of a Data Privacy Policy?

    If your business already has measures in place to protect privacy, from a website cookie policy to London confidential waste paper shredding, have you considered how you manage information held on your digital media devices, computers and hard drives? If you’re considering using a secure computer recycling service (i.e. with a licensed waste carrier), ensure they provide destruction services too. This includes data shredding, erasure and degaussing. If not, confidential information you store could land in the wrong hands, leading to a hefty ICO fine for your company.

    What Is a Shredding Service?

    A shredding service is one of the main types of hard drive destruction service, available all over the UK in locations such as Manchester and London. It’s the process where equipment is shred through specialist machinery, breaking it into tiny pieces. If you choose this destruction method for your old hard drives, they can never be used again.

    Is Data Erasure Better than Shredding Services?

    The data destruction technique chosen depends on the type of outcome you want. Some prefer to see their digital media equipment physically shred, but we would recommend data erasure too. This involves overwriting all data held on a device with unreadable information, replacing every block so that it can’t be recovered. The benefit is that the hard drive or media device can be used again, so businesses may choose to upgrade or sell it on for revenue. For shredding hard drive destruction, only certain types of IT equipment can be shred, including hard drive devices and magnetic media.
