SecurShred Certified for Hard Drive Destruction

February 01 , 2008 in SecurShred in the News

SecurShred has been certified for hard drive destruction by the National Association of Information Destruction (NAID). The annual certification confirms that SecurShred has the appropriate policies and procedures in place for the handling and destruction of hard drives.

SecurShred operates a mobile hard drive crushing machine. The “HD Hammer” crushes the memory platters of each hard drive so that the information can not be read. This operation takes place either at the customer’s location or at SecurShred’s secure warehouse facility.

The serial numbers of each hard drive are recorded and a certificate of destruction is completed. The crushed hard drives are then taken away for recycling.

The processes of degausing and overwriting hard drives have been proven to be not totally effective. The only sure way to destroy confidential information on hard drives is to crush the memory platters so that they can not be read.
