Physical Data Destruction

Physical data destruction involves physically damaging the storage media to render it irretrievable. This method is often achieved through techniques such as hard drive shredding, crushing, or disintegration. The key benefits of physical data destruction include:

  1. Complete Data Destruction: Physical destruction ensures that data cannot be recovered, providing peace of mind by eliminating the risk of unauthorised access.
  2. Compliance with Regulations: By physically destroying data-bearing devices, businesses can meet regulatory requirements and industry standards for data protection.
  3. Simplified Disposal: Physical destruction allows for the proper disposal of electronic waste, reducing the environmental impact associated with improper disposal.

Degaussing is a technique that uses a powerful magnetic field to erase data from magnetic storage media such as hard drives and tapes. The degaussing process disrupts the magnetic patterns, rendering the data unrecoverable. The benefits of degaussing include:

  1. Permanent Data Erasure: Degaussing offers a highly effective method of completely erasing data from magnetic media, ensuring that no traces remain.
  2. Irreversible Data Destruction:  The degaussing process not only removes all the data, but it also removes the start-up files. As such, a degaussed hard drive will not boot up.
  3. Regulatory Compliance: Degaussing aligns with data protection regulations and helps businesses meet compliance requirements for secure data erasure.
