When the time comes to upgrade or replace your existing IT systems, you are faced with the thorny issue of the data held on your storage devices. This can range from personal address details to bank statements, invoice references and contract information; all data that you, as a company, have a legal duty of care to keep confidential. At Advance, we are specialists in data sanitisation, whereby we safely remove all confidential data so that kit can be reused or recycled without risk.
WHYS IS DATA SECURITY IMPORTANT?
Data protection legislation places on businesses the full burden of responsibility for their customer’s data. Online fraud and identity theft are growing issues. Personal data from HDD’s, CDs, computers and paper documents can and does get misused by criminals to compromise a person’s identity and finances.
At Advance, we understand all the requirements of data security and so can undertake these security measures on your behalf, giving you confidence that your duty of care to your customers has been met.
If you wish to reuse an IT asset or sell it on, all the previously stored data has to be safely removed. At the same time, the physical device must obviously remain intact. We use the Blancco data erasure software platform, which is the fastest and most effective available on the market, to return any form of electronic device to a blank slate.
We provide both an off-site and an on-site data sanitisation service.
HDD degaussing physically destroys the storage device so that the data is permanently inaccessible. We also use two Verity Systems Degaussers which work to put any magnetic based media beyond use whether it is disk or tape We can safely transport your devices off-site for destruction at our facility.
