Title: The Procedure of Hardware Data Destruction


1
The Procedure of Hardware Data Destruction
2
Data destruction does more than protecting the
environment from ewaste pollution. It protects
the data stored on the devices as well, which is
crucial for the company whos dumping its storage
devices. Such data breaching can cost a companys
reputation and loss of business in the future.
3
Instead of dumping the IT assets, one should call
an electronic recycling service provider to
ensure that complete data is wiped off the
storage devices. There are mainly three ways
using which hardware data destruction is
achieved.
4
Method 1 Overwriting
It is an easy, low-cost solution, however, takes
a long time to overwrite a storage device
depending on the space in it. Overwriting
requires a separate license. It is not a
foolproof way to erase the data from the disk.
Even if the overwritten disk gets into the wrong
hands, someone can recover the data.

Method 2 Degaussing
A Degausser tool is used to remove the magnetic
field of the storage device. The process is
effective and quick. It makes data totally
unrecoverable. Thats why it is used on the
storage devices that have highly sensitive data.
However, in most cases, it also makes the storage
device unusable when the precautions are not
followed properly.

Method 3 Physical Destruction
Physical destruction involved feeding the disk or
the drive into the shredder and tore it into
pieces. This way, no trace of data is left. In
fact, no trace of the disk is left. The shredded
parts are used in the manufacturing process as
raw material.
