There are Different Ways to Destroy Data
Information technology (IT) assets commonly hold large volumes of confidential data. Social security numbers, credit card numbers, bank details, medical history and classified information are often stored on computer hard drives or servers. These can inadvertently or intentionally make their way onto other media such as printer, USB, flash, Zip, Jaz, and REV drives. (Wikipedia)
Deleting Your History and Cookies
If you use your computer for simple tasks, searching keywords or using social media, then deleting your history and cookies daily might be the only security measure you need to keep yourself safe. Nevertheless, think seriously about the time you spend on your computer. Do you buy things from Amazon.com, or ebay, or other websites? Do you fill out forms with your email, address, credit card information, age or job position? You might want to consider a more secure erasing process. Think before you recycle.
Some Companies Claim they Erase Your Information.
Always be careful. Is this a company one you trust? Does this company have a location you can find on a local map, a website, a representative you see in the community, a reputable company that has excellent ratings? Or is the a one-man-shop that works out of his garage. Hence, don’t let some hacker convince you that, “it’s all good…” Call, compare and research.
