United Electronic Recycling LLC in Carrollton, TX has added a nationwide service of Data Security to include On-Site Hard Drive Shredding or On-Site Data Wiping. This certainly a concern for every business and a primary concern for the medical, insurance, legal and accounting industries.
Businesses today must ensure any personal data on retired electronic equipment is destroyed, not just wiped clean. In certain industries the Federal Government has enacted a few laws to protect the patient or customer.
• Medical offices, hospitals, and insurance companies must follow the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) which allows fines up to $250,000 and 10 years in prison for each violation of patient health information privacy rules.
• Financial institutions must follow the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act which also allows fines up to $100,000 per violation.
• Then there is the loss of customer or client data that would not only damage and/or adversely affect the reputation of a business but cause the immeasurable lost of future revenue.
All businesses risk the loss of company financial, proprietary or copyright information, client data, and employee records. How safe is your business’ data? You owe it to yourself, your company and most importantly your clients to ensure your data is safe!
