Organizations today are under tremendous pressure to protect personal and non-public information that may exist inside computer hardware. Many organizations
are required to destroy the data on their retired computer hardware due to federal regulations. Examples include the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Gramm
Leach Bliley Act (GLB) and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).
A single data security breach has the potential to put your organization at serious risk for lawsuits, fines, poor publicity and possible criminal prosecution.
Valaset Services utilizes a best-of-breed drive wiping software program to destroy the data on your hard drives. It meets the government standard created by the Department of Defense
(DoD 5220.22-M). The application is very sensitive to defective areas on the hard drive. In the event it is not able to destroy the data, Valaset Services will remove the hard drive
and have it physically shredded.
