Secure data destruction
Information disclosure has become a major risk to organisations who hold data on electronic storage systems (e.g. PC, Laptop or Server Hard Disk Drives or Solid State Drives) or use disposable media (e.g. USB memory sticks, CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs). Failing to dispose of old, redundant IT equipment securely can leave your company vulnerable with major security issues.
The ultimate in data destruction
Recycle IT 4U offers a secure way of disposing of those items that contain data. We can shred your PC, Laptop or Server Hard Disk Drives as well as any USB memory stick at our premises in Telford. The HSM Hard Disk Drive shredder is specifically designed to destroy your hard drives so that data can never be retrieved.
The shredder will shred the drives by completely destroying all data safely and efficiently into tiny 40mm strips which are cut through specially hardened, indestructible, solid-steel cutting rollers.
The hard drive shredding process completely destroys the drive platters, mechanisms, and the electronic components rendering the data unrecoverable. Only complete, physical destruction will ensure that your digital data is permanently destroyed.
Due to the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation earlier in the year, companies must securely destroy data using an accredited IT disposal company. If a company does not dispose of data correctly, and unfortunately is caught out by the ICO, you could be penalised with heavy fines. The fines awarded by the ICO are the biggest fines to ever be put upon businesses – up to £17.6 million or 4% of global annual turnover.
Not only does Recycle IT 4U have secure data destruction methods, we also hold ISO 27001 for IT Security, this means we are annually audited to ensure our systems and procedures meet the international standards for keeping your IT and data secure.
Recycle IT 4U can also taylor-make a disposal service that means your HDDs are shredded at your premises. This is available for larger amounts of HDDs – please call 01952 580814 for more information.
We can collect your hard drives
So you now want to dispose of some Hard Drives – how do you arrange this? There are two ways, you can either arrange for us to collect the items from your company in our 24 hour security tracked vehicles, or you can bring your items to our premises where you can even witness them being destroyed.
Following your secure hard disk drive destruction, you will receive a Certificate of Destruction confirming that your items have been securely destroyed by shredding. The Certificate of Destruction is your audit trail to confirm that your company is compliant with all relevant data protection laws.
Call us on 01952 580814 to discuss your requirements.
We offer a fast, efficient, friendly, secure service using our own unliveried, security tracked vehicles and uniformed staff. All Recycle IT 4U services offered to our customers are fully customisable.
