We have clear and effective security protocol for the management of data bearing equipment from collection to disposal. You can read this part of our management system as a discrete document by down loading it here.
Data Destruction by wiping.
As with all other companies we are bound to promote the destruction of data on data bearing devices in preference to the physical destruction of the data bearing media such as a hard drive to enable it to be reused. The environmental advantages of reuse make it the highest goal in the government’s environmental waste hierarchy.
We use Kill Disk as a corporate user to guarantee data destruction to HMG IS5 standard. We then immediately ghost a new operating system making it impossible for anyone to recover data.
Data Destruction by shredding.
We offer a clear opt out of the reuse of data bearing media after data destruction with the mechanical shredding of such media. This belt and braces philosophy is also applied where there is any question over the completeness of data destruction for example where hard drives test as faulty or in the case or static drives used in tablets and phones etc.
For a fee we can arrange a witnessed mechanical destruction where information is particularly sensitive. CLICK HERE to see hard drives being physically destroyed in our system.
