The Importance Of Hard Drive Shredding & Destruction
The amount of information and data that businesses keep on computer hard drives can fill over 10,000 record storage boxes.

According to The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) the physical destruction of electronic storage devices is the only way to ensure absolute destruction of any stored electronic data.
