DVDs are regularly included in the shredding projects Adera carry out for corporate and individual customers.
DVDs should not be ignored when adhering to the strict laws requiring the prevention of unauthorized access to the personal information on discarded electronic storage devices.
Improperly discarding sensitive personal and corporate information on DVDs, not only flouts the strict laws and ordinances to ensure that all electronic equipment is properly recycled, but creates the real possibility of identity fraud, data theft, and the associated perils and fines that accompany irresponsible disposal of computer data.
The laws and regulations covering privacy, and recycling are important reasons for not casually disposing of DVDs, but industrial and personal espionage, leading to theft and fraud is also huge.
Data breaches caused by not destroying the information held in DVDs can not only be costly in fines, but all customers must be informed of any data breaches you create, whether they were directly affected by the breach. This is costly and time consuming, and can undermine customer confidence and future business enormously.
And DVDs aren’t just used for storing client information, they are frequently used to store information proprietary to your business, and the potential for trade secrets to leak is very real if these devices are casually discarded.
Courts of Law are unlikely to be sympathetic to your claims against those who end up with your secrets if you can’t prove that you took every precaution to dispose of your data storage devices in a secure and prudent manner.
The solution is simple, and extremely affordable.
Adera will destroy all of your DVDs, or any other equipment/electronic storage devices for you, and provide you with a complete physical and documented audit trail for your records, which includes documentation of where and when the processed remains of the equipment are sent for recycling.
Adera is more than paper shredding. If you need to dispose of anything that may come back to harm you in any way, contact us.
