Degaussing is a very essential critical step to achieve 100% data destruction and get rid of electronic waste. Physically destroying the machine that holds the data does not ensure complete destruction of all data. Even shredded pieces of a hard disk may still have data in those bits. Degaussing is the process of decreasing or eliminating a remnant magnetic field and will leave the magnetic domains in random patterns with no preference to orientation, thereby rendering previous data unrecoverable.
