Risk No Business Can Afford

Data theft is becoming commonplace. The secondary market for IT hardware is a haven for information thieves who retrieve and exploit business and personal data from hard drives. Consider the following reported in a major technology publication:

"An Idaho Power Company found itself in an uncomfortable situation as it attempted to track down several unscrubbed disk drives that had been sold on eBay. The drives contained confidential employee information, correspondence with customers and memos that discussed proprietary company information. The company said it hired an outside contractor to recycle about 230 SCSI drives. The contractor had sold 84 of those drives to 12 different parties using the online auction website."

An annual study published by Scotland's University of Glamorgan on hard drive erasure reported:

"Each year, university researchers buy hard drives on eBay, at computer shops or from recycling company and then study them to see what data could be found using off-the-shelf tools. This year, the study found sensitive data on 62 percent of 133 working drives purchased in the U.K." There is a case where the data belonged to a major UK hospital group and another one from a huge UK Oil company."
