Why on-site shredding is the most reassuring method of data disposal
The process of destroying sensitive information, especially when it comes to client data, should be a high priority for all businesses. Improper practices of data destruction can result in breaches, loss of reputation and hefty fines.
For all businesses, making sure your organisation discards of old data securely in-line with legal requirements is essential. Doing so helps to prevent data breaches, uphold customer trust, and keep in accordance with GDPR regulations.

Always use a certified ITAD company
The only way to be completely sure data cannot be extracted from a device is through secure disposal with a certified IT Asset Disposal specialist.
On-site shredding is a form of physical destruction that destroys data-bearing media to 6mm or 2mm particles, depending on storage type.
Devices and hard drives can be wiped, but for very cautious businesses, shredding ensures complete and utter destruction of the digital data through destroying the physical asset it is held in.
