We offer a wide range of certified solutions, from permanent hard drive destruction and data erasure techniques to mobile data shredding services.

    Data Destruction Explained

    A data destruction service is used to destroy or shred the confidential or sensitive information stored on computers and electronic media, including hard drives, CDs, USBs and other data tape formats. The different data destruction methods available make sure the data can’t be accessed again, and may even result in the equipment being completely destroyed, depending on which service you use. Options include hard drive destruction, data erasure, degaussing or a shredding service (where a device is physically shred).

    What Is Hard Drive Destruction?

    Hard drive destruction is a form of media destruction, which may involve several different techniques. This includes data erasure, in which the device is overwritten with unusable information, or degaussing which disturbs the magnetic field of the hard drive. Hard drive shredding services are also highly popular, using advanced equipment to shred the device into small particles. By shredding hard drive media, it can never be used again.

    Why Is a Confidential Data Privacy Policy Important?

    A confidential data privacy policy can help a business remain compliant with everything from their data protection responsibilities to information security laws. If your computer, media or hard drive falls into the wrong hands, it may lead to unauthorised persons viewing confidential information stored on those devices. This could breach data privacy laws, harming your company reputation and leading to huge ICO fines. It may also compromise information held about your business and employees.

    What Should Be Included in a Data Destruction Plan?

    If your company is putting together a media destruction plan, there are lots of different considerations to help cover requirements.

    Factors to Consider for Data Security Policy Conditions

    · Is your existing data secure? Do your computers and IT assets need upgrades? How will this be checked on an ongoing basis?

    · How will you implement a secure disposal process as part of computer recycling plans?

    · Which equipment in your business will need data destruction services during an IT asset disposal or recycling process? This could include hard drives, laptops, hard disk drives, physical media and mobile phones.

    · Where can you access reliable and secure hard drive destruction solutions and other services such as shredding? Do they cover London if that’s where your business is located?

    · How can you check the reputation of the destruction service you use? This includes their accreditations, registrations, waste carrier licence, and service terms and conditions for how they shred data or shred equipment.

    · Does the waste company you use offer all types of data destruction solutions? Do services include on site and off site shredding services, data erasure and state of the art techniques to shred and destroy media?

    · Where is their data security shredding facility (e.g. in London or Manchester)? Do they have robust security measures in place there?

    · How can you ensure computer equipment disposal and shredding services are environmentally friendly and cost-effective? Where is shred equipment disposed of?

    · Are there particular disposal regulation conditions relating to your sector, including public sector guidelines?

    · Where else does data need protecting? Consider your website terms of use and your cookie policy (including how you use cookies).

    · Where will your data policy be kept? This could include paper and digital versions.

    Do You Provide a Data Erasure Service?

    Yes! Data erasure is one of our core solutions, often chosen over a shredding service (e.g. hard drive or paper shredding services). During this process, data is destroyed by overwriting it with unusable information, all carried out by sophisticated software. The software will then determine whether the process has been successful, issuing a unique certificate of destruction for each asset erased. Please keep these records in a safe place (in paper or digital format) to prove data was destroyed using certified methods.

    Do You Offer Data Shredding Solutions?

    Absolutely. Our data shredding services can be used as a standalone shredding service or if the data erasure process fails. Much like paper shredding works for confidential waste bins, these advanced shredders shred down the equipment into tiny fragments, sometimes as small as 6mm. Shred equipment can’t be reused. Contact us to find out more.
