Data Security Is What Sets Us Apart
Don’t give your sensitive data to just anyone. eCycle Florida is the only company offering a hard drive destruction service in Miami that has a policy of total destruction.
We don’t reuse hard drives, we shred them. No cost of total data destruction is offered for your peace of mind. We offer an on-site or in-house electronic hard drive destruction service in Miami and North Florida region.
This is done by physically shredding your hard drives at your place or in our warehouse. We also have a HIPAA Compliance certificate. For your records, a serialized certificate can be obtained. You can also view the entire process on video. A representative of your company is welcome to watch it.
- Secure Chain of Custody: Assets are recorded at pickup. They are then brought back to the warehouse where they are assigned a serial number or an asset tag. We can tag your items if either one of these is available. The serial number of the server or computer where they were taken is used to list drives. The serial numbers of each drive are used to create a certificate of destruction.
- All drives that we receive are physically shredded (100%)
- Our process conforms to NIST 800-88 standards; DoD 5200.22; HIPAA/HITECH; Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. FACTA Disposal Rule. Bank Secrecy Act. Patriot Act of 2002. Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act. FDA Security Regulations. PCI Data Security Standard. Other local, state, and federal regulations.
Hard Drive Destruction Service In Miami
eCycle Florida offers hard drive shredding in Dade County. Shredding is the only method we offer to destroy your hard drives completely.
For our customers’ convenience, we offer both on-site and off-site hard drive destruction. Our most powerful machine, the warehouse shredder, can handle up to 1500 drives an hour which is perfect for your commercial data destruction for your business.
The drive is reduced to less than half its original size by the shredder. All of your data will be permanently destroyed using the shredding process. This meets all standards for electronic data destruction. On request, we offer free certificates of destruction
Shredding is the safest and most effective way to destroy your hard drives and electronic data. Other media devices, such as thumb drives and cell phones, can be destroyed by the shredder, including CD/DVD, DVDs, CD, and magnetic tape. We can provide serialized certificates for destruction, and we can even video the process in order to comply with any regulations.
A company can offer some value to a business when they are looking for someone to recycle computers, IT equipment, or data destruction. Keep in mind that the machines and equipment were only licensed to that company and that particular business.
Even if the computers or servers have been refurbished, their serial number or asset tag will always point back at the company that bought them. If those refurbished machines end up being disposed of again years later and are not being disposed of responsibly, the serial number will still point to the original company that purchased them. eCycle doesn’t refurbish.
eCycle eliminates the risk of this scenario by dismantling most items that we receive for recycling and never just wiping hard drives. Companies that need to retire or refresh their IT equipment or computers can get value back from us.
HIPAA Security Standards
eCycle has a HIPAA Compliance Certificate. This certification fulfills all your requirements to meet HIPAA compliance if you use an outside vendor to manage your electronic data. Our electronic data destruction services meet or exceed HIPAA standards. Here is a summary of HIPAA Security Standards:
- Electronic media containing EPHI should not be made “unusable or inaccessible”.
- Another method is to “physically destroy it [hard drive] beyond repair, rendering the data inaccessible”.
- Document the “receipt or removal of hardware or electronic media that contain EPHI”.
- EPHI and electronic media, such as computer hard drives, should be made unusable or inaccessible.
- It is important to properly inventory and report all digital media that enters or leaves the custody of the covered entity.
- A written agreement must be signed by the covered entity when it hires a business associate to provide data destruction services.
- EPHI should be kept in the custody or supervision of an authorized employee.
eCycle can come to you and physically destroy all your hard drives. For each hard drive we destroy, we will provide you with a serialized certificate. We can also provide a serialized certificate of destruction for material that is being destroyed off-site. After your material is placed in the custody of eCycle it will be kept in a locked box until it is moved to our secure facility. The material will be kept locked until it is destroyed. After destruction is documented and filmed, our clients will be given a copy and serialized certificate.
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
then eCycle will cover your business if it is covered under the Gramm–Leach-Baily Act. This law may apply to your business if it is a financial institution such as a bank or credit union, an insurance company, a securities firm, or a business that provides financial products and services for personal, family, or household use. This means that your electronic data must be destroyed according to the GLBA standards.
