Data Destruction Demystified: Understanding DOD-Certified Data Destruction

Why is DOD data destruction so important to an organization’s security? The reason is because every transaction-making business keeps certain information related to their operations on file. This information may include customer names, banking information, account details, medical information, and/or any other type of sensitive information. Should this data fall into the wrong hands, the company could find itself in serious legal trouble. As a result; it’s imperative for all business managers and owners to understand the difference between simply erasing information and destroying it in accordance with government regulations.
