Why is Certified Recycling Important?

Improve Data Security

Data security is a growing concern worldwide, so it stands to reason that your organization should never put sensitive data at risk from a breach. Certified recycling eliminates a major source of data breach by thoroughly and certifiably using hard drive disposal processes designed to render data irretrievable.

Properly Dispose of E-Waste

IT assets, such as hard drives, consist of many rare earth materials that can be reused and recycled, thus lessening their presence in landfills. Furthermore, components that cannot be recycled may be refurbished and resold. Certified recycling benefits the environment as well as your company’s bottom line.

Develop a Compliant Audit Trail

Most large organizations now require audit trails for IT assets, including reporting and certificates of compliance. Since auditing is now commonplace, maintain regulatory compliance and choose an ITAD company that provides transparency. Wisetek provides full audit trails including reporting functions, logistics tracking, certificates of recycling, and certificates of destruction and downstream vendor traceability reports.

Data Destruction Certificates: Frequently Asked Questions

What is the goal of secure data destruction?

Secure data destruction should achieve two complementary goals: sanitize the IT asset and render its data completely irretrievable by any means.

What is a data destruction certificate?

A data destruction certificate is a document that acknowledges the receipt of and details the destruction of sensitive data held on hard drives or storage media. Its level of detail depends largely on the provider of the certificate, but Wisetek provides detailed certificates that meet the highest standards for data destruction.

Are data destruction certificates required?

Data destruction certificates are becoming increasingly commonplace since many regulators and policymakers are requesting greater commitments to due diligence and best practices for data destruction. This makes them essential for any organization maintaining a data destruction policy.

Does a data destruction certificate protect my organization against liability?

Simply holding data destruction certificates shows that your organization exercised some due diligence for protecting sensitive data, but it isn’t sufficient on its own in the event of a data breach where others have been affected.

To improve the robustness of your data policy and ensure your data destruction certificates provide the best assurance of thorough destruction, look to ITAD companies with NAID certification and compliance to other well-known agencies and bodies providing data destruction certification.
