For individual consumers and businesses alike, ensuring the destruction of your personal data is a top priority when recycling or disposing of used electronics. Not only do you want to ensure your data is wiped from recycled devices, but it is also important to back-up any important information. Many electronic devices that appear broken still have sensitive data saved on their hard drives. This data can be restored and transferred to other devices, which can lead to your personal or business data being obtained by other individuals. Here are a few benefits of ensuring complete data destruction:
Whether you are a large corporation disposing of your company computers or an individual consumer upgrading your cell phone, you want your data to remain secure and confidential. By wiping your data from these devices before disposing of them, you can ensure all of your sensitive, private information remains in your hands.
Large companies also have the responsibility of maintaining the privacy of their employees and customers, which makes protecting their contact information and data a top priority. Identity theft, targeted advertising, and a loss of personal privacy are all consequences of having data recovered by the wrong people, so ensuring a complete data wipe is crucial, even before recycling your electronics.
Once you are confident that your data has been removed from your electronic devices, you can opt to refurbish and resell devices that are still functional. Before passing the devices along to another user, a full data wipe will give you the confidence and peace of mind needed to get rid of old devices. They can then be sold or donated to those who can make use of them.
