We provide a GDPR Compliant hard drive shredding and destruction service so that when you dispose of your hardware, someone can’t simply pick up your device and log in to retrieve all of your data. GDPR mandates that businesses destroy their hard drives so that no one else can access them.
Hard Drive Shredding & Media Destruction
Data can be recovered from a hard disk that has been wiped clean, either by deleting the data or factory reset.
The purpose of our hard drive shredding service is to destroy old computer hard drives, safely and within the GDPR regulations. We have a specialized shredder that shreds the hard drive into bits, leaving it unrecoverable. Meet Bob – our shredder!
Our procedure complies with all essential privacy laws, like GDPR and safeguards your company by ensuring a secure process.
System Force IT will issue you with a certificate of destruction, ensuring that no data on the hard drive can be accessed, and that the destruction was successful.
Why you must destroy your hard drive securely
Your computer hard drive can potentially contain sensitive company information data, and properly destroying it is vital, to ensure that the information isn’t accessed again by someone else.
If you don’t properly destroy a hard drive, you risk:
- A data security breach which can cause financial harm to your company
- Breaking the data protection regulation and GDPR not being followed
- Allows malicious hackers to gain access to your information, and possibly asking for ransom for your data, which ultimately leads to a tarnished company reputation.
You can either manually remove the data on the disk, which can take a long time, or shred your hard disk. Shredding a hard disc is the favoured method since it is far more secure than digitally wiping files or doing a computer’s “factory reset.” To double ensure that your data cannot ever be accessed again, shredding is the go-to option.
We safely recycle any unwanted computer parts too.
