hard drive degaussing

Hard-Drive Degaussing

Hard-drive degaussing refers to rendering a hard drive unreadable using powerful electromagnets. Once a hard drive is degaussed, it can no longer store data and cannot be re-used or donated. Many companies use hard-drive degaussing to remove recorded data including patient files, financial information, and other sensitive data. Once degaussing is complete, drives are typically crushed or shredded.

Protecting sensitive internal and customer data is a primary concern for companies. Exposing data to unauthorized recovery can expose you to civil and legal penalties.
