How can we help?
Why should you destroy your data?
Under the 2018 GDPR, as a data holder, it is a legal requirement to ensure all appropriate measures are taken to prevent unauthorised access, accidental loss or alteration of data and to facilitate the destruction of personal data.
Failure to adhere to a secure hard drive destruction process under the 2018 GDPR can result in prosecution with very high fines levied at company owners. Simply smashing your hard drives or deleting the files will not typically be enough to ensure your data is completely inaccessible and could lead to major issues if the remaining information is accessed by criminals. Not only does the introduction of GDPR mean that your business could be struck with heavy fines, but a breach of sensitive data could be a massive hit to your company reputation, leading to further losses in revenue.
Data security is becoming an increasingly prevalent topic as consumers become more aware of the responsibilities business owners have to protect them so ensuring your old hard drives are destroyed is a vital business process.
What happens if data can’t be destroyed?
Should a data wipe be insufficient to protect your sensitive data from recovery, we will recommend a hard drive destruction service to ensure that data stored on your machines cannot be recovered. By following the full process of wiping, degaussing and shredding, you can be assured that any confidential data which needs to be disposed of by you or your business is physically impossible to access.
Our dedication to sustainability
We avoid sending equipment to landfill sites at all costs and recycle virtually everything that comes to us. The process of recycling redundant IT equipment allows us to recover precious and scarce metals to be used again.
