We live in the information age. Information is big business with everyone looking to sell yours. From email services to web search engines to pizza delivery places, everyone is eager to sell information about their consumers. Including you! Securing your information is more important now than ever. Especially information that is related to your finances, medical records, or business.
If you own a business, you have a greater responsibility to secure and protect the data of your employees and your customers. Whether for business or personal needs, secure data destruction is something every human being needs to consider, especially when upgrading, eliminating, or recycling electronics that may contain data about you and others.
Think about all the devices and technology you carry around with you or operate on a given day. For many people this list includes one or more of the following items:
You might not realize that each of these devices contains mountains of data about you as the user. From your movie and gaming preferences to your email and communication information to financial data and vital health statistics, these devices reveal a lot about you to those interested in mining this information – or using it for their own purposes.
Data destruction is a key component to keep in mind when updating or upgrading your electronic devices and equipment. No matter how innocent your experience with your computer is, the truth is that your phone, computer, and even gaming devices have more information about you than you realize. Think about all the things you do on these devices daily, including the following tasks:
More information than you realize can be gleaned and shared from these devices if they are not properly scrubbed with data not only removed but completely obliterated.
When you upgrade to the next new device, gaming console, computer, or smart television, what do you do with the information on the one you’re getting rid of? For far too many people, the answer is crossing your fingers and hoping for the best. It doesn’t have to be. The same holds true when it comes to vital office equipment. This includes printers, computers, servers, monitors, and more. Safely upgrading your business must also include a safe means of data destruction to protect the information your old, obsolete, and outdated equipment contains. Don’t hold on to old equipment because you’re afraid to take the risk of upgrading.
