HardDisk Shredding Before After

Data Security

At United Electronic Recycling we know that your data is YOUR DATA. We treat your data just like we would treat our own: very carefully and with a high level of security.

Our Data Drive services include:

Department of Defense Level 3 Data Erasure standard – We use the DoD 5220.22-M data sanitization method for Data Erasure.  This is a 3 step process where it writes zero in every bit position holder, then it writes a one in every bit position holder and then a random one or zero for the final pass.

Erasing a hard drive using this DoD sanitization method prevents all software based file recovery methods from lifting data off the hard drive. The sanitization method was originally defined by the US National Industrial Security Program (NISP) in the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) and is one of the most commonly used processes for destructing data.

Data Shredding – We offer hard drive shredding via a secured lock box here at our facility or we can come to you. Hard drives can be shred into very small particles which renders the platter completely unreadable.

United Electronic Recycling, LLC. (UER) provides the service of On-Site Hard Drive and Data Destruction. In addition to our standard Data Destruction (DOD Level 3 HD Erasure) we now have the ability to come to your location or facility and shred your hard drives. This affords our clients the ability to oversee the total destruction of their hard drives. UER provides On-Site hard drive shredding to our customers and clients in the DFW Metroplex, Texas, Oklahoma and surrounding states at a below market rate.

United Electronic Recycling understands that some of our clientele must ensure total and compete destruction of their hard drives and all data stored therein. Businesses such as attorney offices, doctor offices, schools, and government offices must ensure any personal data on retired electronic equipment is destroyed, not just wiped clean. These include:

•  Medical offices, hospitals, and insurance companies must follow the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) which allows fines up to $250,000 and 10 years in prison for each violation of patient health information privacy rules.
•  Financial institutions must follow the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act which also allows fines up to $100,000 per violation.
•  Then there is the loss of customer or client data that would not only damage and/or adversely affect the reputation of a business but cause the immeasurable lost of future revenue.
•  All businesses risk the loss of company financial information, proprietary or copyright information, client data, and employee records.
