Data Destruction To Protect Your Data, Your Brand, and Our Environment Overview Data Destruction is a crucial part of any working ecosystem considering the required confidentiality in the industries. Electronic recycling service providers that destroy the media storage devices recycle them, which are used for other purposes.

Third party data thieves, hackers, and identity thieves can easily gain access to information by finding a loophole in the systems or getting access to the hard drives, expired media in the recycling bins and dumpsters. The pulled out data can be used for blackmailing purposes or can be sold to any company. To not let this happen, destroying the data becomes a must and it must be done by the professional electronic recycling service providers as they know the right methods of safely and securely destroying the data and they have the right tools to do so as well. Types of Data Destruction Software Based Destruction U.S. Department of Defence has set some standards od data destruction (DOD 5220.22M Specification). Any electronic recycling service provider who is


offering data destruction services must follow these standards for software data destruction.

Physical Data Destruction Shredding is preferred to destroy drives, data holders, and other media devices to guarantee the complete data destruction. Shredding destroys the hardware 100% and turns it into raw commodities, which are recycled later on. Any harmful items or toxic items are removed from the drives such as batteries, mercury, and bulbs. They are destroyed following a separate procedure. A few companies also send a live video feed of them to the clients destroying the drives and media devices. A few electronic recycling service companies even do the data destruction on-site for the client for their additional peace of mind.
