If you’re looking for a secure hard drive destruction specialist, please contact Gigacycle today. We have years of expertise, ensuring we destroy hard drives via a range of approved methods. This includes hard drive shredding and data erasure solutions. For free collection, book now.



    What Is Secure Data Destruction?

    Secure data destruction relates to how information is wiped, overwritten or destroyed from used IT assets. Managing confidential waste doesn't just mean thinking about paper shredding and how you destroy each document. Computer hard drives and media store lots of sensitive and personal information, which you wouldn't want to fall into the wrong hands.

    How Do You Securely Destroy a Hard Drive?

    The best way to destroy a hard drive is to use a professional hard drive destruction service. This can involve just one or a combination of solutions, from hard drive shredding to media erasure.

    How Much Does It Cost to Destroy a Hard Drive?

    Hard drive shredding services are highly cost-effective, but you must use an accredited company. This ensures the hard drive is destroyed as securely as possible. Gigacycle is a hard drive destruction specialist, offering high-quality, effective services. We specialise in data erasure, hard drive shredding, magnetic media destruction and computer recycling.

    Can a Smashed Hard Drive Be Recovered?

    Yes. With the right technical know-how, if somebody can recover the hard disk in the drive, they could access the information on it. A hard drive shredding service will obliterate both the hard drive and hard disk into unrecoverable pieces, but you may also want to consider data erasure solutions before this process.

    What Is Data Protection?

    Information privacy and security involves the collection, use and storage of data. In the UK, we have a Data Protection Act, which controls how personal information is used and the public's right to know how information about them is managed.

    You should carefully consider the company data privacy policy you implement, including GDPR compliance. You'll need to think about the secure storage of data, whether it's information about your employees, customers or transactions. You'd be wise to think about protecting confidential company data too, including its storage on computer hard drives or paper document records in your confidential waste.

    If you don't manage confidential data properly, not only do you risk data breaches, but you could risk receiving a fine from the ICO.

    What Are Hard Drive Shredding Services?

    Shredding is a type of hard drive destruction service tasked with breaking a device down into tiny pieces. One way to imagine it is to think about confidential waste paper shredding. Each document is passed through a machine to reduce the chances of recovery after it's shred. The same goes for IT and HDD shredding.

    Our specialist shredding machines have interchangeable screens to accommodate different shredding widths. In fact, we can shred hard drives down into parts as small as 6mm upon request from your company. Shred waste will then be recycled.
