Our secure media destruction options protect your organization, your employees, and your clients from the negative impacts of improper disposal. Depending on the nature of your business, state, federal and industry specific regulations apply to ensure correct safeguards are in place. Destruction of media is often the most effective way to protect your organization against a data breach as devices are physically destroyed making the confidential data impossible to retrieve.
Digitally or electronically stored information is just as vulnerable as hard copy records and Patriot Shredding provides solutions to private sector, government and military clients across the DMV and surrounding areas. Our dedicated media shredders and equipment offers the fastest throughputs available which translates into time saving and significant cost savings for our customers. We have the ability to handle dedicated large scale projects by the truckload and work closely with R2 certified downstream vendors to ensure the shredded materials are properly disposed.

Data Storage Concerns
A single unencrypted USB drive small enough to fit in the palm of your hand could contain enough information to cripple an organization or be used to introduce malware to a corporate network from an external source.
