Why You Should Use a HIPAA Compliant Data Destruction Service
Any company or entity that handles sensitive information such as government, financial or business must be concerned about data security and protecting their patients or clients personal information. It is crucial that companies ensure their data is safe and secure from unauthorized access and that data is properly destroyed when no longer required. Companies that deal with protected health information (PHI), as defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, (HIPAA), need to take this into account. A HIPAA-compliant data destruction service is a good option to ensure that all PHI is properly handled and destroyed in a safe manner.
HIPAA compliant data destroyers are the best because they ensure that your PHI is destroyed securely. HIPAA demands that all PHI be destroyed in a secure manner to prevent unauthorized persons from accessing or using it. HIPAA-compliant data destruction services can meet these requirements.

A HIPAA-compliant data destruction service can also be used to protect your company against potential legal liability. A company that fails to properly dispose of PHI can face penalties and fines.

Finally, a HIPAA-compliant data destruction service can ensure that all PHI are destroyed in an environmentally responsible way. Many data destruction services use environmentally friendly disposal methods such as shredding, degaussing, and incineration.
