You have old hard drives, and your IT department has wiped them clean and sent them on to be resold or tossed out. Can you be sure that all of the private and secure information is 100% gone? According to the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), there are about 40% of devices and hard drives that have not been wiped clean enough to keep data secure.
