Secure Data Destruction at CompuCycle
Compliance with government regulations is crucial for every organization and business, and so is the confidentiality of their private and sensitive information and data in their storage media. When the electronics that your company owns become obsolete, the data stored in them should be completely and properly destroyed following efficient data destruction policies and processes.
An improper informational asset disposal process can pose some major risks to your business’s confidentiality and sensitivity. Therefore, it is highly important to hand over your IT assets, such as smartphones, DVDs, LTOs, laptops, hard drives, flash memory sticks, CDs, DLTs, PCs, and servers, etc., to a secure, effective, and compliant data destruction service, like CompuCycle.
Here at CompuCycle, the most important part of what we do is to ensure that all data inside the electronics we process is permanently destroyed beyond recovery so that no one can ever access it and threaten your business in any way.
We practice the highest standards in data security from beginning to end of life. We set an inventory as soon as you contact us for our data destruction services to capture the quantities, models, and serial numbers of your outdated IT assets. Our specialized, experienced, and expert team evaluates and analyzes the information and chooses the most suitable and secure destruction method.
We use two methods of data security:
- Data Sanitization: Meeting the NIST 800-88 standards using Department of Defense Compliant Software 5220.22-M, we administer a one or three-pass wipe of data erasure on the hard drives that can be reused. This software provides a report listing all pertinent information, including hard drive and unit serial numbers, and whether the driver passed or failed the wipe. If any of the drives fail this wipe for any reason, they are immediately shredded.
- Data Destruction: At our facility, hard drives that are not suitable for reuse will be physically and securely destroyed with our Komar industrial-strength shredding machine. Once the drives have been shredded, they will be recycled responsibly. You can avail of our offsite as well as onsite sensitive data destruction services, such as shredding, crushing, degaussing, and data wiping. The assets that are suitable for reuse are repaired and processed in compliance with the international regulations after their data is completely wiped. The reuse of electronics offers a number of environmental benefits.
While we destroy data and your information-carrying assets, we guarantee zero incineration and landfill. We maximize the reuse of all the components, and all our processes are completely eco-friendly. We offer full documentation of acknowledgment that your assets were recycled according to the best practices of the industry and international guidelines and that all your data was completely destroyed.
We are fully committed to environmental safety and always stay in line with international confidentiality and security standards. With us, your IT assets, data, and outdated records are safe and sound until they are made to vanish completely.
