Today, every office equipment has memory to store company’s info, contact details and data/images of the job done on the unit. Memory of the equipment is a necessary evil. It helps the company perform and grow and at the same time, if sensitive data gets in wrong hands, could destroy or bring down the company. Data/images are saved in the systems memory, even after the copier has been unplugged.
Data erasure, often called data clearing or data wiping, is a technology driven technique that seeks to completely destroy all electronic data on a hard disk drive. Traditional file deletion commands do not remove the data completely. Rather, these tasks simply remove the pointers that direct users to data disk sectors which make data recovery possible with standard software tools. Degaussing and physical destruction are two methods of destroying data that leaves storage media unusable. However, data erasure is a safe way of removing confidential data while leaving the disk operable.
Software based data erasure is effective because it creates a meaningless stream of data which is then copied onto all of a hard drive’s subdivisions. This method differentiates data erasure from a more simple deletion method. Standard deletion methods leave room for risks of data breach which can lead to issues such as identity theft or failure to reach regulatory compliance. Often times, true data erasure methods will contain several overwrites in order to reach recognized government and industry standards. Properly executed software should provide data erasure verification which is necessary for industry standards.
