Earth Day Celebrates 50
Last week, Earth Day marked its 50th anniversary. Started in 1970 as a way to raise awareness of environmental issues, it’s grown into an international event, reminding us of the need to take care of the planet’s resources.
Electronic waste has grown into a serious issue for the environment. Millions of tons of potentially hazardous e-waste is discarded every year, and only about 20% of it is recycled. This means tons of heavy metals, plastic by-products, and other poisonous chemicals are simply dumped into landfills, where they can pose problems for years to come.
As you think about the environment around this Earth Day, you can make a difference in the environment by disposing of your old electronics responsibly. CyberCrunch is R2/RIOS certified for responsible e-waste recycling. When you trust us with your discarded electronics, you can be confident that they won’t end up being part of the problem.
CyberCrunch Earns NAID AAA Certification
The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is the standard-setting organization for the data destruction industry. The NAID AAA Certification is designed to ensure that data disposal companies properly handle confidential information throughout the destruction process.
With our NAID AAA Certification, CyberCrunch customers can be assured that all data is destroyed and compliance records are met. NAID conducts randomized audits of CyberCrunch facilities including forensic analysis of our data destruction processes, giving you peace-of-mind when you trust us for your data destruction needs.
Our NAID AAA Certification also simplifies your compliance with industry and legal regulations, like HIPAA and PCI-DSS. The AAA certification qualifies as “vendor due diligence” under these regulations. This means you can be sure that our services will ensure your compliance with the data destruction requirements of these stringent regulations.
Additionally, CyberCrunch is pleased to be one of only 30 AAA Certified companies specifically designated to handle wiping of solid state hard drives. SSDs present special challenges for data destruction, but our proprietary process ensures that these devices can be securely wiped.To find out more about how CyberCrunch can keep your data protected and your business secure, contact us today.
