What Can Be The Consequences Of Improper Data Removal Companies can easily improve IT infrastructure with the help of corporate electronic recyclingor local electronic recycling companies. These services are important for the prevention of data breaches. In this blog let’s explore about benefits of hiring certified electronics recyclers: Avoid unnecessary fines: Leakage of data can harm in multiple ways. Clients can cancel ongoing projects. Not only this but heavy fines may also be imposed. This leads to a loss of brand value. To avoid this the companies should only hire certified end of life hardware destruction companies. These companies follow all the procedures like NAID standards. Other instructions issued by the federal government are also followed by electronic recycling provider. Deleting data permanently: Data cannot be easily deleted. Many companies think that after simply deleting the data nobody will be able to recover it. They don’t know that with the help of modern practices hackers can reveal the information. This is because after deleting the data actually pointers pointing at the data are deleted. Actual data stays within the hard drives. While availing services from data destruction companies small businesses can ensure

permanent removal of data. For this these companies also provide a certificate of deletion. Avoiding lawsuits: In the case of data leakage clients can file lawsuits. This can harm the future of the company. Data is considered as the new currency. Just because of one case of data leakage clients won’t be interested in dealing with the company. Which methods can help in ensuring the permanent removal of data • With the help of software: Nowadays there are multiple software available on the internet. These can ensure permanent data removal. However companies should not rely on them as bugs can cause some problems. When the command is given for permanent removal firstly they simply delete the data. After this they overwrite it multiple times. This way the data present in the initial phase cannot be accessed. • Physical destruction: Physical destruction means destroying hard drives. The components are put in a shredder which splits hard drives into small particles. The only disadvantage of this process is that the company has to purchase new storage devices. The main advantage is that after the hard drives are destroyed their parts can be used after electronic recycling. This helps in lowering down the

usage of new components. Accordingly new components are not used and less natural resources are depleted. • Degaussing: In this process a giant piece of metal generates the electronic field. Accordingly with the help of a magnetic field the data is permanently deleted. This is also not the ideal solution as hard drives cannot be used again. Companies have to purchase new storage components. The reason why this method is used is it can easily wipe 100 TB Terabyte of data.
