Data Erasure and Destruction


Protection from the risk and consequences of a data breach

Data security is now a prime concern for any business, particularly in the wake of the implementation of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in 2018.

As well as the data protection principles to which every company must conform, it must use “appropriate and technical organisational measures” to protect the personal information it holds. This applies at every stage – even when the time comes to dispose of the data.

That means your organisation is responsible for the security of that data at every stage in its lifecycle. That includes its secure disposal – even when a third-party data processor carries out the measures to destroy it.

Under the terms of GDPR, the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) has the power to impose stiff penalties on any organisation responsible for a data breach. For the worst infringements, you can be fined up to 20million euros, or up to 4% of your turnover from the preceding financial year.

eReco protects its clients from this type of breach at the point of disposal. We provide secure collections, where assets are transported to our premises and all data is removed, using software approved by NCSC, the government’s technical authority for information assurance.

Our expert team can erase data on your premises

eReco has extensive experience which enables us to advise, support and protect our clients and ensure they remain compliant with data protection legislation.

If you have particularly sensitive data, we can send our expert team to your premises to ensure all IT assets are cleansed before they leave the building.

We provide a complete audit trail to ensure visibility of the chain of custody over your data. All assets are logged and NCSC data erasure certificates provided for each individual hard drive that has been processed.

We also provide this service to companies migrating assets between departments or locations. We don’t just erase data from equipment that has reached the end of its use.

eReco adheres to the principles of ISO27001-2013 in relation to data security. This is a universally recognised standard required by many of our clients including government bodies, financial institutions and multi-national organisations.
