Data Erasure Process

A confidential, individual log of each hard drive is created that captures: date of erasure, number of passes, HDD serial number, HDD capacity, HDD make and model.

This information together with verification of eradication is all further captured on individual data erasure certificates.

All data bearing devices are transported in our solid sided vehicles and are unloaded under CCTV.

These items are audited against asset lists and are sectioned into quarantine in our locked cage. They remain in this secure environment until they are moved into our NCSC data erasure cage were complete erasure is achieved.

Non-functional data bearing devices do still contain data, these are physically destroyed in our high-performing hydraulic hard drive press.

This efficient method effortlessly crushes the hard drive, splits the case, tears platters and destroys the PCB. In turn, rendering the drive completely unserviceable and therefore destroying all data.
