Digital Media Destruction
Having a process in place to destroy outdated digital media is critical for businesses. Optical disks, backup tapes, and other types of media store enormous amounts of sensitive data. When an organization lacks protocols to destroy these devices during disposal, it increases the risk of data breaches.
Media Types We Can Shred
Guard Docs can destroy all forms of digital media, including CD/DVD, floppy disks, backup tapes including LTO and DLT, audio and videotapes, flash drives, and RAM memory chips.
Media Destruction & Compliance
Digital media destruction is an important part of industry compliance standards related to the protection of information, such as SOC2 and HIPAA-HITECH. Organizations today need an auditable record of destruction as part of their information handling and disposal process.
