Many people take for granted how much information is stored on a computer hard drive. From the inner workings of business to personal information about employees, it is all on the hard drives of our computers and printers. That is why Mobius Computers guarantees complete destruction of all hard drive data units.
Mobius Computers is an authorized data destruction facility. We immediately process hard drives and all data tapes with the following process:
All computers, hard drives, and data tapes are transported in a secured, locked truck.
The received units will be transported then stored in a secured storage facility to ensure the security of the data units, until they are removed per Mobius Computers standards and procedures (approximately 24 hours turnaround time):
All hard drives and data tapes will be shredded with our industrial drive shredder.
Shredded drives will then be transported to a local certified e-waste recycling facility for metal recycling.
Upon request, a Certificate of Recycling and Data Destruction will be provided to the client upon completion of the destruction (typically 3-5 working days).
Optional services include bar code scanning of drive serial numbers, photographic recording of all drive and tape units, and video recording of the shredding process.
FEDERAL ACTS TO SECURE YOUR DATA
There are four key data laws holding businesses accountable for their employee, client and vendor information. By shredding hard drives and providing a Certificate of Recycling and Data Destruction for verification purposes, we guarantee all drives are in compliance with the following federal acts affecting how any type of entity needs to handle the destruction of your information. Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA)
