Not only is it required for compliance with federal and California privacy laws including HIPAA, you could also be exposing your San Francisco company to heavy fines and bad PR for a data breach. Just deleting files is just not as sufficient to destroy the information.
The best way to be sure the information is destroyed is to physically destroy your hard drive and electronic media. Hard drive destruction can be done onsite or at a secure plant- and it's absolute destruction.
