As is the case with document destruction, you must also comply with data protection regulations for hard drive destruction in Berlin.

For data protection-compliant destruction, the physical shredding of hard drives is the safest way to protect your data. Thanks to our shredding facility, we are able to destroy hard drives up to protection class 3 security level H-5 of DIN 66399.

The shredded material is then recycled to sustainably protect the environment. Following the successful destruction of hard drives, you will receive a certificate from us confirming that your data media have been disposed of in accordance with data protection regulations.

Why is hard drive destruction important?

Hard drive destruction is a sensitive issue. This is because there are large amounts of confidential and important information on your company's hard drives. Simply deleting the data is not enough, because it can often be recovered. Even formatting a hard drive will not offer you absolute security.

To be really sure that the data on your hard drives does not fall into unauthorised hands, you require professional assistance. With Haberling you are always on the safe side! We offer you complete and comprehensive advice on hard drive destruction in Berlin and Germany. Do not hesitate to contact us!

Statutory retention periods for hard drive destruction

The German Commercial Code (section 257 HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (section 147 AO) stipulate how long commercial documents must be kept. The same retention periods apply to data stored on hard drives as to records and documents on paper. Digital data must also be archived for specified periods of time.

The storage medium is irrelevant for these retention periods. An invoice, for example, must always be retained for the same period of time - be it on paper or digital. The retention periods for documents usually have a term of 6 or 10 years.

Important to know: It is mandatory to also archive digital data electronically! Printing data on paper and storing it in ring binders is not permitted. You must retain the original digital data. It is your responsibility to take the appropriate technical precautions for this.

If personal data is stored on your hard drives, you must destroy it in compliance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR also applies to digital data. The physical shredding of hard drives is the safest way to permanently erase your data and protect it against unauthorised access.
