Data destruction is a process governed by the Data Protection Act that ensures the practice of confidential data destruction as a necessity for any private or public sector company specialising in the computer recycling and reusing of electrical equipment industry.
Information stored within data holding parts contained within any office or IT equipment and portable media devices such as USB disks, CD’s, DVD’s and taped cassettes needs to be thoroughly erased before the commencement of the data destruction of the physical device.
At LCWS, we ensure our customers’ piece of mind by using numerous ways to carry out the data destruction of their information bearing software and hardware.
What We Do – The Three Step Destruction Process
Our trained and experienced technicians will take a number of steps to completely destroy your hard drive and remove all trace of the information that was stored on it:
1. Data wiping - We use specialist equipment to remove the data from your hard drive. You can verify this before we remove the hard drive from your premises.
2. Stripping - at our depot we strip the hard drive to its component parts. Some parts are repaired and reused, according to WEEE & RoHS regulations, and the Data Protection Act.
3. Destruction - the parts not being reused are destroyed completely, often by shredding.
By going through this process there is no possibility that anything on the hard drive can be recovered, replicated, or accessed in any way.
Our confidential data destruction at LCWS ensures that we remain the local, friendly Lancashire company who offer enterprise level services for every individual client we come into contact with.
