Hard Drive and Media Destruction

Protect your business by ensuring that 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.


That’s how much it can cost for each violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Imagine if one case note is left accidentally in your office break room by a medical assistant trusted with its descruction.


That’s the penalty for each violation of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), regardless if you’re a local credit union or nationally-known institutional investor.
