We're well versed in Illinois & Federal Regulations
Chapter 62, Title 9, Subchap. 4, Subsection
b. Your clients data is vitally important
to keep safe & secure.
When upgrading or removing retention
expired data, trust us to get the job done!
We make it our business so
nobody knows yours!
We offer On Site Service calls
DOD level of standard in making sure your data is unrecoverable.
We have a variety of methods for destroying your information.
We also dispose of your old equipment for Free! After erasing the
data, we safely dispose of the remaining e-waste materials.
While we cater to Small and Medium level Businesses, Private Medical
Clinics, etc., we also work on consumer devices for customers.
Shredding on site at business locations, though pick up is available
and destruction will be done in shop.
Not familiar with how this goes? No problem!
First, give us a call and we'll schedule a
time to come out, inspect and inventory the
equipment. With Smaller businesses,
we trade some labor for the equipment their
data resides within. We can ensure complete
destruction of any Personal Information on
all electronics, phones & printers too.
Second, We will schedule another time with
you, to perform the actual destruction (or
removal for off-site destruction if less
HIPPA sensitive data, or by request).
Fees for Onsite Services are billed by the
hour, while those in our shop are often
considerably less billable hours.
We are prepared for any type of equipment
to decommission. If need be, we rent u-hauls
to transport the equipment off site where we
can more readily dispose of the drives,
and their content in a more efficient manner.
Our custom automated programs run several
passes over the disks, with randomized
salted blocks of data (a computer's version
of random, encoded with a strong password)
Drilling & Force:
For platter drives made of aluminum and
ceramic type materials, we can break them
apart by physically drilling through the
housing. Simply smashing the controller &
heads aren't enough to destroy your data.
For solid state drives, disintegrating by
force is employed on the chips themselves.
Essentially it's using a strong magnetic
field to scramble the bits of data on the
hard drive. This method works best after
removing the platters from the housing.
The software method of writing data over
existing data, ideally randomized.
Unfortunately, computers cannot generate
true random, but we find composite methods
to reinforce this strategy.
Using strong acids we can most efficiently
destroy hard drives and chips. It's ideal,
albeit not in the field.
Our lab is controlled & equipped though.
