Electronic storage is part of every day life.
Did you know that photocopiers and fax machines have electronic storage devices in the form of hard drives that record every document you copy of fax?
Before you turn in your leased copier, or retire an old fax machine or printer, make sure that you have destroyed any data storage device in the equipment. This goes for any electronic storage device.
Adera are carrying out more electronic storage shredding projects for corporate and individual customers than ever before as a result of media coverage of the perils of not doing so.
Ignoring the strict laws requiring the prevention of unauthorized access to the personal information on discarded devices utilizing electronic storage devices can lead to fines for improperly discarding sensitive personal information; and almost every state in America, has strict local ordinances to ensure that all electronic equipment is properly recycled.
Compliance with the laws and regulations covering privacy, and recycling are important reasons for not casually disposing of devices which contain electronic storage devices, but the possibility of industrial and personal espionage, leading to theft and fraud is also huge.
Electronic Storage Shredding of retired computers and office equipment avoids not just the potential financial penalty for not doing so, but the equally embarrassing and damaging bad press, and resultant poor corporate image, which can be more costly to your business than the fines.
Data breaches caused by not destroying the information held in electronic storage devices can not only cost tens of thousands of dollars in fines, and much, much more in lost customer confidence and future business, but you are legally, and ethically, obliged to inform your customers and investors of any such breach, and that is all customers, whether they were directly affected
by the breach or not.
The solution is simple, and extremely affordable.
Adera will destroy all of your equipment and electronic storage via on-site shredding.
Adera will track the serial numbers on the computers and/or electronic storage devices/hard drives, and provides a complete physical and documented audit trail.
Adera provides documentation that shows where the processed remains of the equipment are sent for recycling.
All Adera personnel are thoroughly background checked, and subject to Adera’s strict confidentiality agreements.
