Explanation:
This is actually two questions in one.

You may be correct that "bris de document" is "document destruction". I would also suggest considering "document corruption". The answer probably depends on the context of your text, specifically whether the action to the documents is active or passive.

Regarding "Mio", this is an abbreviation for "mébioctet", which is 2^20 bytes. In English, we call this a "mebibyte", which is abbreviated as "MiB".

neutral  Daryo: all correct, only one small fly in the ointment: since when "corrupting [presumably client's] documents" should be a chargeable service??? WHO in his/her right mind would PAY to have documents corrupted?? Reality check miserably failed ...
