Data Protection and Hard Drive Destruction

You must ensure that all personal data is removed from computers before they leave your control. This is a legal requirement. Additionally you probably want to make absolutely certain that no company information is left on the computer. Simply deleting information or just re-formatting the drive will not do the job. We will ensure, using the UK Government standard set down by GCHQ, that every addressable sector of the drive is overwritten, thereby putting all information beyond reach. We can even show you evidence that the information on any particular hard drive was erased and we keep this evidence should you require it for future reference or audit purposes.

To obtain an estimate for hard drive disposal or data wiping please call us on 01908 656 700.
