Erasing Data

Before recycling hard drives, people will often delete the items from their systems to ensure that no one can access the information once the hard drive is thrown away. Mission accomplished, right? If only it were that easy!

Unfortunately, simply deleting information from your hard drive systems will not protect your valuable information. Many hackers and thieves can recover your deleted information by using complicated data recovery programs. Even if the data is erased and properly removed, hackers can use data recovering software, which is free online, to retrieve information. While this may sound scary, C.O.P.S. has a way to ensure your information stays out of the wrong hands.

Secure Destruction

C.O.P.S. security professionals can destroy any media (data tapes, VHS, CDs, microfilms, microfiche, etc.) or computer hard drives right in front of clients. C.O.P.S. makes sure that your software suffers catastrophic damage so that no recovering software will be able to retrieve any information. Data recovering software will not work on broken drives.
