A hard drive is the element inside your computer or laptop that stores all of your data such as documents, photos, videos, and so on. When you purchase a new device and want to throw away your old one, it’s important to wipe the hard drive clean.
This is particularly vital for businesses, because hard drives generally contain key intellectual property – including private customer data. There are laws around how customer data must be stored, and a business that does not take the appropriate measures to keep it safe can face severe penalties.
To keep yours and your customers’ data secure, we offer a complete hard drive wipe and disposal service as part of our Managed Services agreements.
Where required, we can also provide a Certificate of Disposal which proves the hard drive has been destroyed and any sensitive information it contained can no longer be accessed.
