Securis franchise owners George Parks and Daniel Dodd, who own and operate the data destruction and electronics recycling facility in Baltimore, Maryland were interviewed by Technical.ly Baltimore. In the article, Parks discusses hard drive destruction methods, company mission, and the importance of data security.
“We’re an ultra-secure, environmentally responsible data disposition, data destruction and e-recycler,” Parks said. “We take care of hard drives, computers laptops, anything that’s an IT asset for companies and we destroy the hard drives through a shredding process, they send the equipment to be broken down.”
Securis’ Baltimore, MD location performs projects for The Social Security Administration, Aberdeen Proving Ground, and provides work under contract for the large military contractor General Dynamics. With 50 million tons of e-waste being generated per year, and only 15% of it being recycled, Parks and Dodd are providing a much-needed service to public and private sector companies and agencies.
