Subject: How to Test HDD Encryption

How can we ascertain that the encryption software we have selected is doing
its jobs. 
A small test like removing the hdd of an encrypted laptop and attaching it
as an external drive on another laptop shows the drive as unformatted. So
far So Good..
But is there any tool available to demonstrate to the management that even
the professionals cannot break in even if they lay their hands on the drive
I am basically trying to make a case to push for drive encryption in our
Please group suggest something.....
Best Regards
