On-site Hard Disk Destruction
Discarded or donated computers, copiers, and media disks are a principle source of information for identity thieves. These items should not be viewed as trash but rather as archives of confidential data.
The majority of US recycling companies ship electronic waste or "e-waste" overseas. Identity thieves are able to buy and sift through hundreds of hard drives and media disks at a time and pull social security numbers, bank account details, birth certificates, online passwords, passport photos, and addresses to create new identities, credit cards, take out loans, and empty bank accounts.
To protect your confidential information, GreenCitizen offers on-site hard disk destruction services. Hard disks are first asset tracked and then destroyed at your facility/office using a portable hard disk destroyer. In the interest of full accountability, this process can be witnessed by your staff, and upon request, can also be filmed for your records. Destroyed hard disks are then shredded in a certified hard disk destructor. Finally, GreenCitizen will send you a certificate confirming the successful destruction of all drives.
