We understand how important it is that every device that we receive is disposed of correctly, so that the data is completely eradicated. We take data wiping extremely seriously and are proud to have an excellent track record when it comes to correctly and successfully eradicating sensitive information.
The common problem is that deleted files are not really erased and so may be recovered by interested parties.
One of the key areas where an organisation becomes vulnerable to this is at the point of disposing of their unwanted, old IT equipment after it has been refreshed. A lot of organisations do not give their old data, which is stored on the old equipment, the sufficient security consideration it deserves as this can often incur additional costs which are not budgeted for. There is a duty of care for the total life cycle of the equipment, including data.
In recent years, the loss of sensitive data from Public and Corporate businesses has become a hot issue with the ICO imposing large financial fines. With the changes in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into play in 2018, it is imperative that all companies meet the standards set by the EU Parliament which Secure IT Services can help you adhere to.
We work with some of the largest public bodies in the UK and Corporate Companies in the world.
