What is our Data Destruction Process?
Using industry standard software we completely wipe your data and issue you a certificate of data destruction with every donation.
Using a NIST 800-88 method, random data is written through the entirety of the drive destroying any recoverable data. The drive is then re-scanned to provide verification that all data has been destroyed.
By default, we wipe all devices to the NIST 800-88 industry standard, which is compliant with HIPAA and DoD standards. Additional data destruction methods are available upon request and compliant with the following other international standards/laws: HIPAA, US Department of Defense 5220.22 M, US Army AR380-19, US Air Force 502, German VIST, Russian GOST p50739-9, Canadian OPS-II, HMG IS5 Baseline/Enhanced, Navso P-5329-26, NCSC-TG-025 & NSA 130-2.
If your company policy is to keep your hard drives, don’t worry! We can still put all your technology to good use even if its broken or missing components.
