How Does Data Destruction Work?
All electronics have one kryptonite: the electromagnetic pulse (EMP). When an electronic is exposed to an EMP, this disrupts the magnetic field that is used to store and organize all of that electronic’s data, completely erasing the data. To add a final touch to our security process, we physically destroy all of the drives.
