Extremely sensitive data, such as employee details, brand/proprietary information or financial information needs specialist care when being destroyed. Our processes provide a full audit trail and are fully compliant.

How we destroy and protect your data:

  • Collections can be made point-to-point on dedicated vehicles, carrying your assets directly back to our premises. This ensures your data is not put at risk and also that your assets are not inadvertently mixed with another customers’.
  • Equipment is logged in on arrival and allocated a consignment reference immediately. This enables your assets to be tracked right through our process. Your assets are protected by digital CCTV system and central station monitored intruder alarm. Our location is highly discreet and minimal signage is displayed.
  • For total physical destruction we shred them in our compliant (More info) shredding system, which permanently destroys the drives, making data retrieval totally impossible.
  • All magnetic tape media is shredded and then incinerated at an ‘Energy from Waste’ facility. This is the most environmentally friendly method of recycling this sensitive product.
  • Customer assets remain within our control and domain until the data has been successfully purged 100% or the data carrying device has been destroyed. We do not consign assets to any third party processors.
  • We are fully accountable and Certificates of Disposal are issued for every consignment we receive.
  • We also provide onsite data destruction solution which is approved to the highest CESG level (Top Secret). For more details on this service, please contact us directly.
