Federal and state laws require health care facilities, financial institutions as well as education and government agencies to provide proof that proper methods were used for copier data destruction. While many businesses take into account the safe destruction of computer hard drives most of them forget about the data stored on their copier. When Impact Technology purchases or recycles your copier you can request our data destruction service. Our methods of copier data destruction are compliant with HIPPA (health care) and approved by the Department of Defense. To view a sample copier data destruction report that comes as part of our value-added services please click on the following link DOD Statement.
Keeping Copier Data Private
Nearly every digital copier or printer contains one or two hard drives, with the main purpose of storing data. When purchased, recycled or off lease copiers arrive at Impact Technology we have technicians on staff that can provide copier data destruction. Upon request, an Impact authorized technician will power up the copier and verify its’ configuration and settings- finding out where the hard drives are located. The hard drive(s) will then be taken out of the copy machine and reformatted from 3-7 times. At this time your data is purged and forensic software will not be able to detect. Our copier data destruction services are available upon request for as low as $100 per copier based upon the brand and model. Protect Your Copier Organizations have paid dearly over the past few years for not properly recycling their used copiers. You can’t simply donate or throw your copier away- data thieves are hacking copiers and selling information. This has been illustrated on CBS, ABC and NBC news reports and costing organizations millions of dollars in settlement fees.
If you would like Impact Technology to purchase or recycle your used copy machine(s) and provide data destruction services that are both HIPPA and DOD compliant please fill out the form to the right and our professional sales staff will respond to your request.
