Technology has long been evolving and changing to meet the needs of businesses and consumers. In doing so, the platforms that information can be saved on have multiplied and this has made media destruction more complex. To keep your company and personal information safe, keep these forms of media destruction in mind.
Cell phone and smart phone technology is one of the fastest growing technology markets.Every time you turn around, the new phone you just got is nearly obsolete and there is a brand new model ready to use.Transferring data isn’t a problem but once that’s done, you are left with the old smart phone that still contains your personal information as well as company trade secrets and intellectual property, likely all stored in emails.These phones must be destroyed properly, or at least the portions of them that hold your information must be wiped completely.
Your computer hard drive holds a ton of information about you and your business. Complete destruction on a hard drive is the safest way to not only properly destroy the information on the drives but also responsibly recycle the materials that may otherwise pose a hazard if simply thrown away. Shred Alaska offers convenient hard drive destruction at our retail shredding services location.
CD’s are still often used to store information including videos and photos of work done, and they are a good way to portably get information to and from clients if sending them electronically isn’t an option. While these are the easiest to destroy- there are many ideas on WikiHow- you will still want to dispose of the pieces properly to ensure proprietary photos, videos, and files are not recoverable.
