Providing secure document shredding services to companies requiring a reliable and compliant means of disposal, is an imperative step towards helping your customers protect their information. With that in mind, if you are not currently offering electronic destruction services such as hard drive shredding, you are missing a significant market and opportunity for increased revenue.
Simply put; the increasing growth of the digital age has obligated companies to turn their attention to other means of information keeping. Computer hacking and dumpster diving are consistently on the rise, and in today’s world, more than ever before, there are various outlets in which thieves can obtain sensitive information. Electronic devices that are not disposed of in a secure manner can be extremely dangerous and damaging to a company or individual if accessed by the wrong individual.
All organizations of various industries have electronics that will eventually be replaced due to upgrades or because they no longer require such devices. While electronic disposal may not be a regular need in comparison to paper, the reality is that at some point your customers will have electronic devices to get rid of. Be their solution for disposal services that protect their sensitive information. Ensure they are well educated in regards to the fact that thousands of files can be pulled from an old device even if it has been “wiped clean.”
Ask questions. Find out how they are currently getting rid of their electronic waste. Remind your customers that if they are erasing their hard drives at the moment, that this method does NOT guarantee that information is gone. In the same sense, deleting’ a file is not a definite way of destroying the information. An information thief can use special software to recover data at any point if they get their hands on the device. One hard drive can contain thousands of files; exposure could create a disastrous outcome for those involved with the company.
Electronic destruction is the only solution that promises data will be unrecoverable, permanently. If your customers are wiping hard drives currently, their information is susceptible to exposure, whether they believe it or not. Why not be the ultimate solution?
