Data Erasure

Secure Data Erasure Services Throughout the UK

At ICT Reverse, we understand the importance of secure data erasure, and therefore offer a hassle-free data disposal security service to provide peace of mind and guarantee that your sensitive data is managed and erased safely.

Secure data erasure is one of the greatest concerns to many companies and computer users when disposing of their redundant IT equipment.

Data erasure tasks can be used to remove sensitive data from hard drives and is often an important factor to most business’ security processes.

What is Data Erasure?

Data erasure is increasingly more important for modern businesses, as it overwrites existing data on a determined storage device. The aim is to render the existing data unrecoverable, and this process doesn’t involve a simple file deletion. A simple deletion of a file isn’t permanent, as it can still be recovered with the appropriate software.

To guarantee that your data is permanently obliterated without the storage device being physically destroyed, the existing data needs to be overwritten across the entirety of the device and the file size reset to zero.

Why Your Business Needs Data Erasure Services

Businesses deal with a lot of data, often sensitive, which must be handled with care. This care isn’t only applicable to when the data is being used and when it’s needed – it must also be handled with care when it needs to be disposed of. Modern businesses, publicly or privately run, often have information pertaining to clients and employees; information which can’t enter the public domain.

When this data isn’t erased properly, there are inadvertent disclosures of personal information. This has a negative impact on companies and leads to an impact on reputation due to negative media coverage. Brand damage, loss of revenue, and other internal repercussions will all be seen.

The only way to permanently erase data, without physically destroying a computer hard disk, is by overwriting the existing data across the entire hard drive and resetting the file size to zero.

Blancco Data Erasure

Working with Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and secure data destruction software, ICT Reverse guarantees to every customer that their data is managed professionally and securely when electronic data erasure is undertaken.

Any device that fails the Blancco process will have the hard drive removed using our hard drive destruction services to ensure complete removal.

Following the process, you will receive a full Due Diligence Pack including all the necessary certification to demonstrate that you comply with the latest legislation in the event of an Environmental Audit.



Why Can’t the Hardware be Physically Destroyed?

Physically destroying a hard drive isn’t enough; even if the hard drive is shattered, it can be reassembled and transcribed. A literal destruction of it won’t guarantee the protection of your information, unlike with data erasure. The risk of reconstructed hard drives ending up in public hands, or being poorly disposed of, can bring about numerous problems that have the possibility of impacting your business.

Are There Any Examples Of The Importance Of Data Erasure?

A famous case that portrays the importance of data erasure is the Brighton and Sussex University Hospital NHS Trust situation. The Trust was fined £325,000 when computer hard drives that contained highly sensitive information were being sold on eBay in October and November 2010. This information included patient records, children’s reports, stall National Insurance numbers, criminal convictions, home addresses, and much more.
