East Coast Electronics Recycling Explains Why Organizations Must Insist on Secure Data Destruction When Recycling E-Waste

The Issue With Formatting

The problem with formatting is simple to understand. Formatting is not designed to eliminate data. Instead, it prepares a hard drive — or any other storage medium, such as a flash drive or SDHC — for reading and writing data. The operating system is removed, the device is tested for reliability, bad sectors are marked, and an internal table is created that is used later on to locate information.

How Organizations Can Protect Internal Data

There is a proven and compliant way for organizations to steer well clear of this egregious error: choose a leading electronic and computer recycling company that offers rock solid secure data destruction.
