HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION

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.
E-Waste Security did an outstanding job. We were retiring old equipment from our Data Center Location. They were prompt and efficient. We were done in less than 90 minutes and they took away our old equipment. Will use them again for sure.
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 allows for an unbroken chain-of-custody and witnessed, verifiable proof of secure data destruction.
The onsite destruction process consists of 1) We come to your office so you can witness and verify destruction, 2) record serial numbers of each drive, 3) shred drives – we do not drill, hole punch or bent – and 4) email a Certificate of Destruction for your records.
NIST 800-88 Destruction Guidelines
If your company does not plan on reusing computer hard drives within your organization, shredding or physical destruction is the safest and most secure option for compliance with legal requirements.
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.
