Data Erasure Destruction

PROTECT YOUR DATA AND YOUR COMPANY

One security breach can destroy the reputation your company has taken years to develop. Unfortunately, used IT equipment can be a treasure trove for thieves who want to retrieve and exploit personal data from improperly erased hard drives. Canvas Systems Certified Data Erasure service can make sure this doesn’t happen to you.

DATA SECURITY: WHY IT MATTERS

If your company mishandles client data, it can cost you a lot, both in terms of money and public relations. Consider the following cases:

  • Consumer broker ChoicePoint, Inc. was ordered to pay $10 million in civil penalties and $5 million in consumer redress after it acknowledged that the personal financial records of more than 163,000 consumers in its database had been compromised.1
  • TJX, the parent company of retailers T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, reached a $9.75 million settlement with multiple states related to a massive data theft that exposed tens of millions of payment card numbers.2
  • The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) paid $20 million to settle a class action lawsuit filed after a laptop containing the personal information of millions of people was stolen.3
