Data destruction is the process of destroying or removing data from electronics or devices. Once this process is complete, your data is completely wiped and inaccessible. Where this is not possible, some electronics must be physically destroyed using data shredding to ensure complete data security. Regardless of the process your electronic assets require, Refreshtek can help. Since we are in the electronic age, most businesses at some point need to retire assets or upgrade their current devices and systems. When doing this, it is of the utmost importance to keep confidential data secure and to protect your assets. Refreshtek can guarantee 100% privacy, in writing.

Importance of Data Destruction to Ensure Privacy and Security

Data destruction is extremely important to ensure privacy and security. There are guidelines in place to ensure privacy and that proper, professional data destruction is carried out. Especially in health care, banking or other industries that deal with sensitive, personal information, data destruction plays a key role at the end-of-life of electronics. Improperly disposed of data has been found over the years in unsafe locations, culminating in a breach of privacy for many individuals. At Refreshtek, we wipe hard drives according to industry guidelines and protect your privacy and data in the process. Our professional staff will physically inspect your equipment, and then electronically wipe all confidential data. In the cases this may not be possible your hard drive will be physically shredded. It is important to remember that even if your electronics are no longer working or are in disrepair, hard drives can be recovered and data can be extracted from them. This is worrisome for many reasons, and the best reason to let Refreshtek handle data destruction for all your electronics when they are at end-of-life or being refurbished for re-sale.
