Hard Drive and Media Destruction

Protect your business with hard drive shredding that ensures the sensitive data stored on your discarded hard drives can never be accessed. Reformatting or electronically erasing a hard drive is not enough because important financial records, confidential employee information, and internal documents can still be retrieved. Corodata provides physical hard drive and media destruction, both onsite and offsite, which is the only way to completely remove all traces of data from a hard drive and any type of media.

$250,000 HIPAA Compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), commonly referred to as HIPAA, protects the security and privacy of patients and their data. Mobile hard drive destruction services from Corodata ensure that you will never suffer a six-figure penalty for improper onsite hard drive shredding.

A $250,000 fine is levied not for each device breached but for each patient’s data taken from the breach. Major companies could be fined tens of millions of dollars for significant data breaches.

$100,000 GLBA Compliance

Violations of GLBA carry the same penalties, regardless of who you are. You are required to comply with onside hard drive destruction standards every time you dispose of a mass storage device.

Corodata ensures that we comply with all the provisions of the GLBA to protect our corporate clients from liability.

$7,500 CPRA Compliance

The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) imposes more restrictions and responsibilities on how companies collect, process, and use personally identifiable information (PII). Your business could fall under the jurisdiction of the CPRA, even if your company is not based in California.

Intentional breaches of CPRA can cost up to $7,500 per violation. Major companies failing to have the proper setup for compliance could potentially be fined millions. Corodata can support you by creating record storage services that comply with the CPRA.

Why Is Hard Drive Destruction Important?

Hard drive shredding is critical when disposing of old hardware. Hard drives may contain sensitive information, such as addresses, phone numbers, credit card information, and Social Security numbers. All information can be used to commit identity theft and access customer accounts. Our hard drive shredding services throughout California, including San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles ensures that when you rotate out older mass storage devices, your data is not at risk of a breach. Regulatory frameworks like HIPAA and GLBA stipulate minimum standards and best practices for secure hard drive shredding. Each breach could land your company with six-figure fines, which means a reliable hard disk shredding service is essential for protecting the future of your business. Never attempt to dispose of mass storage devices alone. An investment in media shredding services is an investment in your future and your customers.
