Your Hard Drive is full of Confidential information, it has become a target for identity theft. When Business and Charity organizations upgrade their computers, they often forget to destroy the data on the hard drives. This can be a high exposure risk to both company and its clients. Some programs erase the data, and some just delete the files and directories on the drive and the actual data remains. Simply by using other available software, the information can be restored, giving someone access to confidential information believed to be destroyed.
This leaves organizations vulnerable to lawsuits and being on the wrong side of the law. If you are running a medical business keep in mind that HIPAA regulations require the shredding of all discarded medical documents including CDs and DVDs. You might also look at industrial shredders (high security) that retain the inner hub serial number so you can verify the destruction of the media. If you use a service to destroy the data make sure they provide you with an audit report, a certificate of destruction, and a waiver of liability.
