Data Security: Data Destruction in the Data Theft Era

The stakes of utilizing a secure electronics recycling service to handle your surplus or end of life IT have never been higher. Large retail chains (Target) whom gather customer credit card information as well as employee personal information, large healthcare company’s (Anthem and Premera) gather even more private data including medical history, social security numbers and home addresses, even large financial institutions (Bank of America, PNC, Citi) whom have customers and employees financial information have all experienced a data breach within the last 10 years. It is known to many as the Data Theft Era, when innovations and updates to technology have offered hackers and thieves new ways to steal data from just about anybody out there that uses technology. What if the data I mention above pales in comparison to some other information that is being stolen. Information that YOU are paying to have destroyed for you, or selling to a vendor whom you trust to properly destroy and dispose of, what if I told you that you are complicit in the sharing of private information with governments that are not friends with the United States of America.
