The shredding of hard drives utilises a purpose built Low speed, high torque, industrial disintegrator, which involves a process of cutting and grinding the drives into small particles that are finally reduced to pass through a screen (40mm-6mm dependent on security requirements).
At 6mm Not even the world's most capable IT professional's could piece the data together again.
Note: All shredded fragments are then sent to an aluminium smelter.
As part of our data destruction service, we even ensure that any paper records are either returned to you or destroyed.
Our data destruction services are performed to the standards defined by the MoD. Shredding to a size of 6mm possible.
Being ISO 27001:2005 certified every stage of the process is auditable. Full and very detailed audit reports are available free of charge for any equipment processed.
