Data Destruction and Digital Media Erasing in Orange County
Gone are the days of paper, where all data was recorded on a physical media. With technology taking over corporate America, digital storage is everywhere. Not only is it extremely convenient to store, share and manipulate, it takes up less space and is easily saved and archived.
However, digital storage brings its own problems. If this data gets into the hands of someone who can misuse it, it can lead to many headaches, financial loss and even imprisonment due to regulatory non-compliance. Digital data security is extremely important for companies to protect their customer records, intellectual property as well as financial information. There are several State and Federal regulations that dictate data protection security and sanitation.
It is essential for companies to have a digital storage strategy, along with a data destruction strategy for all digital media. Data destruction is essentially the process of obliterating data stored on hard drives, USB drives, Solid State Drives (SSDs), tapes and all other forms of digital media to render it unreadable and inaccessible to anyone. When data is deleted on a computer, the underlying operating system cannot read it. However, by using certain software, this “deleted” data can be easily recovered. It has to be overwritten with junk data in order to make it completely irretrievable.
