We offer secure data destruction services for all types of electronic media storage devices, including hard drives, data tapes, CDs and memory sticks. We provide this service inhouse at our secure facility, or at your own premises. We offer three types of process, each of which guarantees 100% data destruction, with no possibility for data to escape:
We use the highest level data erasure software, which carries the best standard available in the UK, to HMG Infosec Standard 5/CESG level. Erasure is carried out by our technicians, who have been specially trained in the latest versions of the software. Certified data erasure is provided electronically, confirming the serial number and specification of each individual drive.
We can carry this out on all magnetic data bearing devices on site at your premises, to ensure all data is destroyed before your material is transported.
We use our custom built shredders on all types of storage devices to reduce them to tiny pieces and ensure complete physical destruction of your data and media. All items pass through two shredders (to physically destroy the items) and two overhead band magnets (to degauss the magnetic media). The securely shredded pieces are then further refined to recover plastic, aluminium and precious metals.
Each of our methods ensures complete compliance with the Data Protection Act (1998) and all other current regulations and WEEE legislation. We’ll give you full documentation as proof and reassurance that your data has been securely destroyed. Our destruction process can also be witnessed or recorded for your benefit.
