Press Release: How Sure Are You That Your Data Has Been Deleted?
LIGHTING RELEASES — Cardiff, UK, June 17 2014- Thinking of getting rid of your computer? Such devices usually possess confidential information that many wouldn’t want others to see, such as bank information and passwords.
It’s important to take precautions to ensure that such data is properly removed, or erased, before you sell or dispose of hardware equipment. This is because deleted files can be recovered which poses various malicious threats.
Confidential information can be stored on any device that encompasses a hard drive or storage chips, such as mobile phones, photo copiers, tablets/iPads, printers, game consoles, satellite navigation devices, and smart televisions. Personal data can also be stored on various other forms of memory types such as USB drives and solid state drives.
Fortunately, these days there are secure steps you can take to protect your data. These range from physical destruction which involves physically destroying the device so that it can no longer be used, to data erasure software which involves using software to completely erase all data which is stored on that specific device. The more secure method out of the latter would be the option of data erasure software as this includes detailed electronic reporting making it an auditable process.
