Degaussing a hard drive is the process of rendering the hard drive completely unreadable through the use of powerful electromagnets. Once degaussed, the hard drive is useless and it cannot be sold, re-used or donated. For many companies, hard drive degaussing services are a part of a comprehensive plan to eliminate recorded data such as patient files, financial information or other sensitive or confidential material. Often, once the degaussing is complete, the drives are then physically destroyed, or shredded.
Preserving the confidentiality of your customers or associates should be one of your primary concerns. Failure to do so can result in legal and ethical concerns.
