What is Secure Data Destruction for Businesses?

Simply put, data destruction is the process of taking electronic storage devices, like zip disks/drives, thumb drives, and DVDs, and successfully removing data from that device in a permanent way. At IMS Shredding, we understand that locked safes and magnetic data erasers aren’t enough protection for media devices packed with highly confidential information. It takes professional physical destruction to ensure you get the job done right.
We handle a wide range of electronic data and digital document destruction, particularly for sensitive industries like healthcare, insurance, finance, real estate, education, and government agencies. When you put your information in our hands, you can put your mind at ease.

Electronic Media Destruction Services FAQ

What kinds of media destruction services do you provide?

In addition to paperwork and document shredding, we provide a wide range of data destruction services for many storage formats and devices. Ask us about the destruction of zip disks/drives, thumb drives, DVDs, DVD-ROMS, CDs, CD-ROMs, magnetic backup tapes, mini-cartridges, floppy disks, VHS tapes, and much more. If you’re not sure, just ask! We’ll explain your options.

Can you back up my data before destroying the physical paper/devices?

Yes. We provide data backup services to ensure you don’t lose the information and can preserve it in the format of your choice. This alleviates the worry that you might inadvertently destroy information that becomes necessary later. Some of our clients choose to move their information to cloud-based backup storage, which can be facilitated through our partner company, IMS Technology Group.

How can I be sure my documents were destroyed properly?

We take your security and chain of custody extremely seriously, following all relevant laws and regulations, including those of strictly-regulated industries like legal services and healthcare. To confirm the voyage of your destroyed materials, we provide a certificate of destruction that lists the date, time, location, and method of destruction.

Do you use secure vehicles and processes?

Yes. Although we don’t use shredding trucks, our secure vehicles can come to your location and pick up your paperwork and devices. Your information can reside in a secure console inside bags or carts as pre-arranged until the pickup time. This provides end-to-end security until the moment of destruction. If you have any questions about the security of the process, please feel free to ask us when you request your price quote. Your satisfaction is our priority.

Is there any type of media you can’t destroy?

We can’t handle materials that are wet, moldy, or contaminated with harmful materials. For example, we may not be able to accept media devices that have been in a fire and/or have been sprayed with fire abatement chemicals. Certain metals and materials take extra processing time and specialty destruction methods. Please note that we don’t handle residential shredding or residential media destruction services because our focus is on commercial destruction. If you need more information, please contact us and explain your company’s unique media destruction needs.
