There are various forms of data destruction processes. Firstly there is the simple data destruction wherein the stored information is being deleted in order to make free space in a company’s storage system. Then there is the data degaussing system. A data degausser uses magnetic field to clear any information which are not required by the owner. Thirdly there is the option of data shredding or hard drive shredding. This is more of a mechanical process of physically destroying the hard drives and storage discs so that no data can be accessed from them again. slide 3: Why data Destruction is required Once the data is being destructed then it is no longer accessible by any sort of operating system. Mere deletion of the files is not enough. That is why hard disk destructors are used in order to over-write whatever available space is there in the storage device. The idea is to make the data completely untraceable and undetectable. Sometimes incomplete or inefficient data deletion processes leave the risk of unethical usage of the information later on. That is why a company needs to be vigilant in hiring a correct data destruction service provider. slide 5: What is data degaussing Data destruction is also feasible via the process of degaussing. A data degausser uses strong magnetic fields to erase or destroy all the stored data in a storage device. Also known as hard drive degaussing this process is very effective in eradicating any trace and sign of unnecessary data from a company’s storage. However considering the severity of this process the owner of the data and data drives must be aware of the fact the desired strength of the data degausser. This problem can easily be solved by hiring the correct data degaussing service provider.
