Data Destruction at EOL’s Facility
From bulk erasure to witnessed destruction
What are the options?
EOL offer NCSC approved on-site data degaussing for magnetic devices. Fully integrated with the Blancco Management Console EOL provide Blancco Certificates of Data Destruction for every device. Magnetic hard-drives and tapes are rendered completely inoperable after use and we can erase up to 250 drives per hour.
EOL provide on/off site data erasure utilising an NCSC approved HMG Infosec Level 5 Enhanced overwrite of the hard drive using Blancco certified software. Every data erasure performed produces a Certificate of Erasure, with full details of the item erased and therefore a complete audit trail for data controllers. Data destruction via the erasure method also ensures that the maximum residual value can then be sought for the resulting redundant IT assets.
Our CPNI approved hard drive shredder is capable of shredding down to 6mm, as required. Our service incudes the scanning of hard-drive serial numbers prior to shredding on site, ensuring a complete audit trail of secure data destruction. The entire process can also be witnessed and overseen in person, if required.
What does our Data Destruction Service include?
- Data Destruction – we can degauss, shred or erase on/offsite
- Audit Trail – all device serial numbers are scanned and recorded to be aligned with internal asset management.
- Certificates of Data Destruction – provided on the same day
- Removal and final recycling of destroyed media
The risks are obvious if the process is flawed:
- Hard drives which contain confidential customer or employee information could breach legislation under the GDPR. This will result in a financial penalty/fine from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
- Business reputation damaged with client’s if information is released via a data breach.
- Your business could compromise its own competitiveness if sensitive commercial information is released into the public domain, let alone your reputation.
As the UK’s most accredited ITAD, EOL remains focussed on enhancing our resources, capabilities and compliance in line with evolving clients’ needs and changing legislative requirements.
Since the GDPR came into play in 2018, businesses are highly aware of the importance of dealing with data appropriately… There comes a point in the life of every business when the time comes to upgrade your IT infrastructure. The… You might presume that disposing of your redundant IT equipment is as simple as wiping sensitive data and removing it…
