Have you ever recycled your ewaste at a free ewaste event?
Identity thieves are able to buy and sort 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.
Are you thinking about donating your lap top or smart phone?
Donated computers, Laptops, and data disks are a major source of information for identity thieves. These items should not be viewed as trash but rather as storage of massive amounts of your personal and confidential data. Most recycling companies ship electronic waste or “e-waste” overseas to be disassembled.

Laws and regulations require proper destruction of hard drives:
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the United States: HIPAA is a federal law that sets standards for the protection of personal health information (PHI). Under HIPAA, covered entities (such as hospitals and insurance companies) must take appropriate measures to secure PHI, including properly disposing of electronic media that contains PHI when it is no longer needed.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union: The GDPR is a regulation that applies to the processing of personal data of individuals in the EU. It requires that personal data be securely disposed of when it is no longer needed, including by destroying electronic media that contains personal data.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS): PCI DSS is a set of security standards that apply to companies that process, store, or transmit credit card information. These standards include requirements for the secure disposal of electronic media that contains credit card information, such as hard drives.
State laws: Many states in the US have their own laws that regulate the disposal of electronic media, including hard drives. For example, California has the California Data Breach Notification Act, which requires businesses to implement and maintain reasonable security measures to protect personal information, including properly disposing of electronic media when it is no longer needed.
These are just a few examples of laws and regulations that require the proper destruction of hard drives and other electronic media. It's important for companies to be aware of the laws and regulations that apply to them and take appropriate steps to ensure compliance.
The importance of hard drive shredding:
In today's digital age, personal and business data is stored on a variety of devices, including hard drives, laptops, and smartphones. When these devices are no longer needed, it's important to ensure that the data on them is permanently destroyed to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. Hard drive shredding is a secure and effective way to do this.
Different methods of hard drive destruction:
There are several methods that companies use to destroy hard drives, including physical destruction, degaussing, and overwriting. Physical destruction, such as shredding, is considered the most secure because it completely destroys the physical media and makes it impossible to recover the data. Degaussing involves using a strong magnetic field to erase the data on the drive, but this method is not foolproof and can sometimes leave traces of the data behind. Overwriting involves writing new data on top of the old data, but again, this method is not foolproof and it's possible that some of the old data may still be recoverable.
The benefits of using a professional hard drive shredding service:
While it's possible to destroy a hard drive yourself, using a professional service has several benefits. First, professional shredding companies have the equipment and expertise to ensure that the drive is completely destroyed and the data is unrecoverable. Using a professional service can save you time and effort, as you don't have to worry about transporting the drive to a shredding facility or manually shredding it yourself. Finally, using a professional service can provide peace of mind, as you can be confident that your data is being securely destroyed according to industry standards.
