If you've recently upgraded your office's technology, you might be wondering what to do with your old computers, electronics and hard drives. Tossing them in the trash or taking them to the dump isn't just wasteful and harmful to the environment, it also opens you up to liabilities and security risks. More than likely, you have gigabytes of personal, sensitive information stored on those drives about employees, customers, your business, its practices, financial information and more. If that data gets in the wrong hands, it can cost you your business -- or at the very least, customer trust.
That's why it's important to fully destroy your hard drives to the point of no return -- so no data can be retrieved from them. In 2017 alone, data breaches were responsible for 158 million Social Security Numbers being compromised. Now, it's not guaranteed that throwing your hard drives in the trash will lead to stolen identities, but minimizing those risks for a low price is surely in your best interests. That's why MARS will help you to develop a comprehensive hard drive destruction plan that best suits your company's needs.
Here's how it works: you gather up all of your old hard drives that need to be destroyed. We then confidentially collect them from your place of business and transport them to our secure facility, where we crush them via our state-of-the-art hard drive crushing machine.
After we confidentially crush the materials under the supervision of insured employees, we issue a Certificate of Destruction upon completion of the destruction process. MARS will also work with you to ensure we follow any compliance requirements your industry or business may have.
Security is our top priority, which is why we have 24/7/365 closed circuit surveillance and monitored doors.
So if you're looking to properly dispose of all your old hard drives and other technology, crush them and recycle them properly with MARS. Get in touch today, call (256) 945-7830.
