Media & Hard Drive Destruction

You’ve heard the stories in the media – hard drives and backup tapes have become increasingly common targets for theft.  The sheer amount of data contained within these formats makes any breach of information an enormous event with potentially widespread consequences.  Privacy laws pertaining to the protection of confidential information are addressed but not limited to the following regulations:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Act (HITECH)
  • Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA)
  • Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLB)
For example, within FACTA, a specific “Disposal Provision” mandates that businesses and individuals maintain confidentiality of records during the disposal process.  In essence, consumer information must be shredded to prevent unauthorized access. And even if your storage devices are decommissioned, private data can still be extracted.  As a result, it’s imperative that media storage devices and hard drives are properly destroyed in a secure manner.
