Your computer hard disk may contain confidential data such as social security number, credit card number, driver’s license number, bank account details and health information. Leakage of such data might cause immense financial loss and could jeopardize relations with your customers.
When you are using computers, you spend a lot of time and money protecting data. But what happens when the computers become too old to use and you need to discard them and purchase new ones? Have you considered what happens to the data stored on the hard disks of your old computers? You may delete the data, but that isn’t sufficient , because that only removes pointers to your stored data and not the data itself. Sophisticated data recovery software can extract data even after you have deleted it.
The solution is to use data erasure techniques which overwrite existing data with 1s, 0s or other random stream of bits, making it impossible to recover old data.
