Good practices with regard to hard drive destruction are more important than ever!
There has been a lot of talk lately with regard to online security, threats, and identity theft.
If you’re not sure why hard drive destruction is important, ponder this. How often do you see old computers on people’s front lawns, awaiting hard rubbish collection? Or hear of people selling second hand computers, or losing hard drives that have been removed for upgrades?
These, and many other scenarios, are all examples where people may leave vital personal information available to strangers. In the wrong hands, information such as financial records, addresses, medical history and personal information can have catastrophic consequences.
Just as we know to shred paper documents, bank cards and CD’s that contain personal information, hard drives can be a hidden goldmine for identity thieves!
