MD Data Privacy Laws Require the Destruction of Personally Sensitive Recorded Data Prior to Disposal
MD DATA PRIVACY COMPLIANT ONSITE HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION
Maryland State law requires that all personally sensitive recorded data be destroyed prior to the disposal of obsolete recorded media. Both State and Federal data privacy regulations require the data be destroyed according to the NIST guidelines for media sanitization, our Federal government’s data destruction standard. Back Thru The Future® provides NIST Special Publication 800-88 “Guidelines for Media Sanitization” approved onsite hard drive shredding and degaussing services. BTTF is among a select few licensed electronic recycling businesses that is also NAID AAA certified as a secure data destruction operation for both plant-based and onsite hard drive shredding. NAID certification, as a recognized industry security standard and serves to satisfy regulatory vendor due diligence requirements.
HARD DRIVE SHREDDING EXPERIENCE YOU CAN TRUST
Beginning in 1996, BTTF was the first company in the US to offer standalone hard drive shredding services. Today, with over 1000 clients in the Northeast business corridor, we shred more hard drives from commercial sources than anyone else in the country.
Transporting live data media outside of your physical security perimeter is a high risk activity.
Destroying onsite eliminates that risk.
3 HIGH CAPACITY HARD DRIVE SHREDDING TRUCKS
These vehicles have been specifically designed to handle both large quantity hard drive shred projects and also to address the sometimes unique challenges of a shred project. The Predator I shredder has a unique large input throat of 16” versus the industry standard 9” throat. This allows us to shred intact circuit boards most complete mobile computing devices and the old 12” magnetic reel tapes.
The Predator II was specifically designed as a low height vehicle allowing access to low overhang loading docks. It is also a cab-over design providing much easier maneuverability and parking thus making it a “city” friendly vehicle.
The new Predator III utilize a shredder that includes a separate shred compartment for solid state devices. It is capable of shredding SSD to a 3/8” particle size as required by NIST. Most standard hard drive shredders come in 1.5”, 1” shred sizes.
SOLID STATE DRIVES (SSD) ARE HERE!
Onsite shredding is the most effective method for sanitizing SSD and solid state cards. Because of the very small size of solid state circuitry NIST requires a maximum shred size of 1/2″. Back Thru The Future is one of a very limited number of onsite hard drive shredding services that can meet this standard. Most mobile communication and computing devices use solid state data storage. Server hard drives are rapidly incorporating solid state data storage components. The sanitization of solid state storage devices is becoming a significant data security challenge. Adopting onsite SSD shredding as your universal data destruction process eliminates the technical challenges of sanitizing solid state media and provides a one-stop solution to all of your data destruction needs in the State of Maryland.
THE SMART WAY TO RECYCLE YOUR HARD DRIVES
As a Federal and State licensed electronic recycling facility, we provide a Certificate of Destruction that is also a regulatory required environmental compliance document. Our proprietary materials sorting process allows us to recapture nearly 100% of the materials used in the manufacturing of a hard drive, making this a highly efficient method for recycling your hard drives as well as a data security best practice.
