After we have agreed a scope of work that decides the levels of data sanitation needed, we will action that scope. It can range from physical destruction of media tapes from the 90's through to a software reset and wipe of a damaged mobile phones from 2020. We regulate our methods against current laws and produce paperwork and certificates for your own compliance.
Data security compliance is paramount to our industry. We work closely with facilities and providers to ensure at each step, every part of the service adheres to all laws and regulations whether the service is delivered domestically or internationally. You, as the controller, and we, as the processor, have our set responsibilities. You can be reassured that we have all avenues covered mitigating any potential data risks.
The different steps we take to ensure data sanitation depend on varying circumstances. However where required, we offer InfoSec Level 1 or 3 Software wiping or NATO physical destruction. We operate all of our sanitations with both zero landfil and zero emissions policy.
The General Data Protection Regulation is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. It was built for the protection of persons relating to the processing of personal data and confirms that is a fundamental right.
