The Best SCIF Shredders

Written by Whitaker Brothers on . Posted in SCIF Data Destruction

Security is imperative to SCIFs.  Strict rules dictate nearly every aspect of construction.  Inside, system networks and even phones are bound by specific rules.  Even beyond the construction, security must be continuously maintained by employees.  However, human error in the form of bad decisions or mistakes (including choosing the wrong shredder) can compromise classified information.  Though not all shredders are high security, users can still choose from a small range of different models.  Choosing an appropriate shredder is cost effective and maximizes security.  The wrong shredder can disrupt workflow and productivity, while jeopardizing secret information.  The wrong shredder could mean more than a broken shredder: it could mean wasted time and money, and worst of all, a security breach.  

The Importance of Degaussers

Written by Whitaker Brothers on . Posted in SCIF Data Destruction

For most, hard drives and magnetic media devices contain at least some sensitive or personal information that you do not want getting into the wrong hands.  If you are looking to erase information rather than simply destroy these devices, then you require a degausser.  Degaussers offer the most comprehensive and effective way of erasing data from magnetic media devices.  Instead of physically bending, warping, and destroying the hard drive itself, degaussers attack the actual information and magnetic properties.  Personal information is becoming easier and easier to steal as identity theft rises in popularity.  Protect the data stored on your laptop, desktop and network hard drives, or LTO and DLT tapes by purchasing the securest form of data destruction: a degausser.
