What happens to your electronic media after you no longer need it?

The amount of confidential information found on single piece of paper is minuscule compared to the vast amounts of data found on a single hard drive, backup tape or DVD. Yet, many businesses still carelessly discard and recycle all kinds of digital media without destroying it first, exponentially increasing their privacy breach and identity theft risks with every passing day. Disposing of digital media directly into the trashcan or recycling bin simply isn’t acceptable. The consequences can be costly and it some cases, irrecoverable. Failing to destroy your electronic information could result in:

  • Regulatory non-compliance fines
  • Legal liability
  • Damaged reputation and brand
  • Negative publicity

The only way to guarantee that the information contained on your digital media remains private is to completely destroy it at the end of its life cycle.
