Flip on the lights of any storage room and you will be shocked by the amount of printers and computers that have live data on them and deemed “out of commission”.  It’s easy to forget about them, out of sight out of mind, but that doesn’t mean they are no longer important. By saving those obsolete devices, that will eventually find their way to the curb, your company may be exposed to data security breaches. Instead of becoming exposed to lawsuits, violations, and data leaks, securely dispose of this sensitive data through a NAID certified onsite data destruction service.

Don’t allow your company to become a victim of a security breach by not properly destroying the data on the unused CPUs, servers, switches and copiers.

To save your firm from exposure and risk make the right choice in hiring an onsite data destruction service to shred hard drives and dispose of unused devices properly.
