Why is disposing of your IT Equipment safely important?
By using our secure service, your business is using a trusted, quality expert when it comes to the disposal of IT equipment. The safe removal of your hardware and many technological devices is as crucial as your existing data security procedures. If your business did not dispose of its previous equipment in a secure manner, then you are risking a data security breach as your old data will be of interest to certain cyber criminals if they were to get their hands on your devices.
Confidential data will be removed using data erasure software approved by the National Cyber Security Centre. The most advanced hard drive and media shredding techniques are also used – with hard drives and all data bearing devices being reduced to shards as small as 6mm.
The service is fully accredited and 100% compliant with all legislation relevant to the disposal of IT hardware containing confidential data. The items will be taken and disposed of, regardless of whether they are still working or broken. Any company logos or identification, such as labels, references or configurations will be removed to ensure there is no trace of previous ownership.
On-site and off-site physical destruction of equipment can also be carried out, making it easy for your business to cleanse itself of unused IT apparatus. You will receive a Data Destruction Certificate, as proof that every item has been destroyed in the correct manner.
