We stand behind our services and we thought the following article, originally reported on Nevada Business, was worth re-posting:
“Every week, it seems, brings news of another major corporation being sabotaged by internet hackers who break into its computer security and steal sensitive data, including financial and business information.
Losses can run into the hundreds of millions of dollars, as evidenced by Target Corporation’s news in early 2014 that hacking of its internet security in late 2013 resulted in a loss of more than $150 million for the company as well as the job terminations of several key executives. Community Health Systems, Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase, Costco, PF Chang’s and SuperValu, to name but a few, have been plagued by hackers intent on wreaking financial and emotional havoc upon the companies, their customers and their shareholders.
Every business and organization is under pressure to protect personal or non-public information which may exist inside IT hardware. Federal regulations such as the Gramm-Leach Billey Act (GLB), Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Fair & Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) and the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) make it critical for the secure data destruction of proprietary corporate and confidential client information.
A single data breach has the potential of serious risk for law suits, fines and diminished revenue or worse for businesses that may need to comply with any of more than 500 federal, state and other e-waste and data security laws on the books. While “front-end” hacking makes the headlines, thorough data destruction is vital in preventing “back-end” compromising of sensitive company material as well. What may surprise businesses is that such security measures can be performed literally on site at a company’s location.”
