San Antonio Hard Drive Shredding

It is not just paper that has sensitive information. Your hard drives also need to be destroyed before they leave your possession. This is required for compliance with federal and Texas privacy laws, including HIPAA. Just deleting files is not sufficient to destroy the information, as data is easily recovered with free software. 

Keep an eye out for hidden hard drives.
