Disposing of old electronics is quickly becoming an environmental and secure data crisis. With ever improving technology more and more electronics are being incorrectly disposed of in dumpsters and landfills. Besides potential health risks from components in these out of date pieces of information there is also the potential for sensitive and secure information to be placed in the wrong hands. It is not enough anymore to just clear all information off of your hard drive. According to the NAID, (National Association for Information Destruction), around 30% of all disposed hard drives still contain personal information easily removed and stolen. It is vital to go the extra step and have a hard drive professionally shredded to extract any remaining traces of secure data. Other researchers believe the percentage is much higher up over 60%.
