Why Do We Need To Securely Destroy Hard Drives & Digital Media

The data on just a single hard drive can potentially cover about 10 football fields when printed out. Imagine what could happen if your hard drive full of confidential data fell into the wrong hands.

Arkiva provides secure hard drive and media destruction service to help both businesses and individuals stay protected from confidential information leak.

1. Deleted data CAN be retrieved easily.
Those data that you manually delete from your computer can easily be retrieved back by certain programs. This means that the information that you deleted years ago from your thumb drives and computer can still be retrieved from hackers if it falls into the wrong hands.

2. Even if the media devices are stored in a locked area, there is still a chance that it could be accessed.
Think your confidential data is secure just by locking them up? In an office with so many employees, there is simply no way to monitor every single person, not forgetting third party vendors. An outgoing employee might decide to retrieve confidential company information before joining your competitors. All these can be detrimental to businesses.

3. Compliance with PDPA Singapore
PDPA Singapore was implemented to enforce that confidential personal data should NOT be exposed to public. This means that companies that hold confidential client information should periodically ensure that their paper documents or data in their hard drives and computers are destroyed.

As long as the hard drives exist and are stored, there is a risk that they can be accessed. Professional hard drive and media destruction is the only way to ensure that data has been destroyed 100%.

Physical hard drive destruction ensures that the data will no longer be retrievable.

With a Certificate of Destruction, you can be assured that this audit trail will prove the data has indeed been destroyed.
