How much data is stored on your business’s computer or personal PC? How many files do you have backed up to CDs, flash drives, and external hard drives? Does your personal or business cell phone have your banking information, credit card number, or confidential client information on it?
When you think about it, the amount of confidential data being stored in bits and bytes on our computers, tablets, smart phones, and other devices is staggering. Simply hitting the “delete” button doesn’t do you much good, since a determined and savvy thief can usually manage to recover files that have been deleted. You need complete document destruction, and that means destroying hard drives, tablets, and other media.
