Hard Drive Destruction Service

E-Waste Security’s hard drive destruction service is the most compliant data destruction service in the industry.  The three functions we provide to keep you in compliance with data destruction guidelines are: 1) onsite service so you can verify that your digital media has actually been destroyed, 2) physical destruction by shredding digital media so data is irrecoverable and 3) NAID Certification, a third-party vetting process for your due diligence requirements under data privacy laws.

Not all hard drive destruction companies perform the three main criteria for compliant data destruction.  Before signing an agreement with any data destruction company (yes, a written agreement is a requirement for compliance), confirm they are shredding drives at your location and that they are NAID Certified.  Many data destruction companies will finally admit that they can only punch hole in the drives.

If your organization is regulated by HIPAA, GLBA, PCI or just needs to protect your intellectual property, our secure hard drive destruction service can help. We have provided services to companies large and small including: Apple, Los Angeles County, AEG Live, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA, Toshiba, Xerox and the Department of Human Health Services.

Onsite Hard Drive Shredding

Complying with data privacy laws and reducing liability associated with a data breach is a function of chain-of-custody and proof.  Our onsite hard drive destruction service allows for an unbroken chain-of-custody and verifiable proof of secure data destruction.  Certificate of Destruction

NIST 800-88 Destruction Guidelines

NIST 800-88 publishes a fifty page paper on Computer Security entitled Guidelines for Media Sanitization. These data destruction guidelines are the de-facto requirements for governmental agencies as well as large corporations. IT Managers should feel confident that by following these hard drive destruction guidelines they will dramatically increase their ability to comply with data privacy laws.

NAID Certified Destruction

The National Association of Information Destruction (NAID) is the largest international certification bodies for information and data destruction. NAID Certification acts as an independent auditor, checking a shredding company’s compliance in 22 critical areas, including everything from shred size to employee background checks.
