Secure IT Disposals are one of only two UK companies to be accredited and approved by the National Cyber Security Centre CAS Scheme for destruction or erasure of ALL types of media as listed in HMG IS5 to Top Secret.
CAS(S) provides assurance that a sanitisation service conforms to relevant HMG IA policy and guidance.
With Secure IT Disposals Onsite services, you can rest assured that the security of your data is our primary concern. Whether it be Hard Drives, Flash Drives, Floppy disks, CDs, DVDs, Ram Discs or Data, CCTV, and Video tapes, every single piece of data is destroyed completely and beyond recovery!
Our data destruction services are performed to the standards defined by CESG, the cabinet office. Shredding to a size of 2mm is possible.
Being ISO 27001 certified every stage of the process is auditable. Full and very detailed audit reports are available free of charge for any equipment processed.
If total destruction is required onsite or the equipment is not reusable, we will shred the hard drives using one of our mobile shredders. These are capable of shredding up to 1000 CDs, DVDs and tapes per day and over 500 Hard Drives per day.
What and How we Destroy On-Site

We guarantee that your Hard drive data is always destroyed*. We undertake this by using UK MoD and CESG standards equipment and procedures, then shredding if not for reuse or return.
HMG IS5 covers both baseline and Enhanced overwriting of data. At 'baseline' level the software overwrites every sector of the Hard disk with one pass of randomly generated data. At 'enhanced' level every sector is over-written three times: first with a 1, then every sector is over-written again with a 0, and then every sector is over-written a third time with randomly generated 1s and 0s.
* If a hard disk is faulty and cannot be erased then it is physically destroyed by using an industrial shredder. All scrap drives are then sent to an aluminium smelter.
