Living in a digital age where it’s becoming increasingly common to transition from paper recordkeeping to digital recordkeeping, one must know how to purge exiled data—data that has been deleted from your documents, from emails, from software programs and sent on through to the recycling bin. From the recycling bin, you again purged the data and hit delete. Tada, done, right?

 

No, not so fast—you’re not done. All of that sensitive company, employee, client, patient, information is still stored on your hard drive. The only sure fire way to avoid a security breach when attempting to purge digital records or any type of digital data is with data destruction.

If you’ve been deleting sensitive data for quite some time and thought that you were doing all that you could to protect this information, you may feel like you’ve been duped. The good news is, you caught it before a breach and now you know.

 

You wouldn’t just throw away paper documents without shredding, so the same concept applies to digital data. This sensitive information must be destroyed—not just deleted.
