What should I look for in a data destruction provider?
There are lots of privacy regulations regarding the correct transportation and disposal of electronic waste and it’s important to choose a provider that you can be certain will adhere to these. It’s not worth taking the risk of incurring a fine or worse for failing to meet proper data disposal standards by choosing a cheap and disreputable data destruction provider.
To make sure you make the right choice, try to choose a data destruction provider that offers
– A large money guarantee
– Liability protection
– A detailed audit report
– A certificate as evidence of the data destruction
– Supervised and secure hard drive transportation off-site
You should also make sure that the company you choose uses Department of Defence methods of data destruction and has a history of providing the same service for high-profile clients.
