How can I prove I’ve had my hard drives shredded?

Once we have collected your IT equipment and shredded all your data storage devices, your company will receive a data destruction certificate (DDC). This gives a full inventory of each data holding device which has been shredded and can be cross referenced with the original collection notes, this ensures and proves full compliance with GDPR and you can be rest assured there can be no data breach from your old IT Equipment.

Why can’t I just erase the hard drives and dispose of them in the waste?

You may think that erasing a hard drive destroys all data and information on the drive, this is not the case. A simple erase of a drive can be reversed by an IT expert or even by purchasing data recovery software which can retrieve the erased content.

The most secure way to ensure the data on your hard drives is not recoverable is to have your devices shredded, this makes them unbootable, unreadable and unusable by anyone that could potentially retrieve information and thus cause a data breach.

Do you sell on IT equipment?

All non-data holding hardware is processed and recycled with a zero landfill policy here at Green Byte IT Disposal.

We guarantee that NO data holding devices are re-sold, we ONLY re-sell items which cannot cause a data breach.
