Data Destruction London

Expert and certified data destruction for businesses in London

Data destruction is an important process which consists of destroying the data stored on hard drives SSD or servers so that it cannot be accessed by unauthorised users or used for unauthorised purposes. Unauthorised access or access to data for fraud is a particular concern for companies and organisations – including financial companies, marketing agencies, health professionals and hospitals, educational organisations and other businesses, looking to sell and renew their equipment.

Destroying all personal information

With an average lifespan of five years, business computers handle a lot of sensitive information – including financial information and private customer information – which can be at risk. Since May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) stipulates that all customers’ personal data should be completely destroyed before disposing of IT equipment. This means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person with reference to, not only, an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location number, an online identifier but also to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Getting certified data destruction

Data protection and security is now the complete responsibility of every business managing databases and private information. Non-compliance and failure to protect it and letting in slip into the wrong hands can have serious, and onerous, consequences for a business.
