UNDERSTANDING SECURE DATA DESTRUCTION SERVICES

It is reported data breaches affected over 212 million Americans in 2014 and 2015. Data Destruction is an important process when disposing of electronic devices that contain sensitive information. TechWaste Recycling provides secure data destruction services to erase and destroy data from devices containing sensitive information. Companies can rest assured and maintain compliance to a standard. TechWaste Recycling employs Hard Drive Destruction and Tape Media Degaussing services that require high levels of data security and are compliant with industry standards and laws.

WHO RECOMMENDS DATA DESTRUCTION AND HARD DRIVE AND MEDIA TAPE DEGAUSSING?

As part of their guidelines for sanitation of magnetic media, degaussing is recommended by the National Institute of Standards & Technology, U.S. Department of Defense, GCHQ (British Government), as well as numerous Government Security Organizations.

TechWaste Recycling is compliant with the following standards, laws and Government Mandates that require destruction of sensitive information stored on Hard Drives and Media Tapes before disposal.

DATA DESTRUCTION METHODS

TechWaste Recycling utilizes 4 primary methods of data destruction.
1. DBAN: Secure data wiping and erasure software designed to delete contents on any hard disk.
2. Degaussing: Degaussing involves using a machine that produces a strong electromagnetic field to destroy all magnetically recorded data.
3. Stake Punching: A physical destruction process that involves the crushing of media platters and storage devices units.
4. Shredding: Units are shredded and material remains are recycled to original commodities. (Call for quote)

TechWaste Recycling’s data destruction methods allow for a high volume of completely erased hard drives and media tapes enabling us to handle any large project type requiring data destruction.
