Where can you shred hard drives in Sioux Falls?

Jul 27, 2021

A recent Blancco study found that for every 20 drives purchased on eBay, at least three had Personally Identifiable Information (PII). What does this mean for you?

If you recycle or resell your used computer equipment, you must verify your data is completely wiped or the hard drive is properly destroyed. You can do this by finding a certified vendor who guarantees proper data destruction, whether through verified wiping procedures in accordance with NIST guidelines, or total destruction through hard drive shredding.
