Hard Drive & Media Destruction

What’s on Your Hard Drives and Other Storage Media?

A single hard drive or other storage device can store enough confidential data to fill a library. Even when information is deleted from these devices, it can still be recovered by tech-savvy criminals hoping to gain access to valuable information. The only way to completely eradicate proprietary data from your hard drives and storage media is through complete physical destruction.

Commonwealth’s hard drive and media destruction service offers your business a secure solution for preventing the theft of digital data stored on your outdated or archival devices.

Whether you need a one-time destruction service or are looking for a reliable scheduled service, we’re here to help. Clients through Virginia and North Carolina trust Commonwealth to support their hard drive and storage media secure destruction requirements.

On-Site Hard Drive Destruction

Our on-site hard drive destruction service provides added data protection for your business. All hard drive destruction and shredding takes place right on your property while you watch. Our state-of-the-art mobile hard drive shredding equipment can destroy hundreds of hard drives per hour. In our heavy-duty shredder, your hard drives and media storage devices are broken into tiny particles that are impossible to reconstruct. You receive a Certificate of Destruction when your shredding project is completed, and all shredded material is responsibly recycled following destruction.

Confirmed Information Security

Commonwealth is committed to protecting your information. Our shredding technicians have passed extensive background checks and undergo regular drug screening. We take every precaution to make sure your hard drives don’t fall into the wrong hands. To keep them safe until destruction, locked collection bins are delivered to your business so employees can quickly drop drives inside for later shredding. These tamper-resistant containers are bar-coded, scanned and tracked, staying within a strict chain of custody during every stage of the hard drive destruction process.

Adherence to Regulatory Compliance

If your company collects and stores medical, financial, or other consumer information, you may be required to adhere to state and federal privacy laws governing how you handle that information. Our hard drive shredding service can help keep your business compliant. Our hard drive destruction methods meet National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) and Department of Defense (DoD) requirements, and fully comply with the following laws:

  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB)
  • FACTA Disposal Rule
  • Bank Secrecy Act
  • Patriot Act of 2001
  • Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act
