Data Destruction Experts
Virtually all copiers and office machines manufactured in the last ten years contain data storage capabilities that enable these devices to retain information of any documents that were printed or copied on it. This data is saved in the system memory even after the copier has been unplugged.
Standard deletion methods leave room for risks of data breach which can lead to issues such as identity theft or failure to reach regulatory compliance.
Data destruction — one of Impact Technology’s core services — is a technology-driven procedure that seeks to completely destroy all electronic data on the equipment’s hard disk drive.
Impact Technology offer two data destruction options:
Level 1: Erase the copier hard drive using system software. This method does not completely delete the information nor does it remove from the equipment’s storage. However, it will make it more difficult for someone to retrieve the data stored in the equipment.
Level 2: Erase the hard drive using external software. This data destruction method meets the Department of Defense (DOD) standards. It is highly recommended if the equipment contains sensitive data such as medical records, IRS/tax information, or social security/credit card information.
Once the data is destroyed, we will send you a certified verification and data destruction log for your records.
Please note: Our copier data destruction services range from $25-$100 per copier based upon the brand and model.
