Keeping data secure is a big challenge for any company. Both physical and technological barriers can be employed to protect data stored on company devices, however, ensuring the data is safe once the devices are retired is something frequently overlooked when choosing an asset disposal service provider
WasteCare were delighted to showcase their “AssetCare” service recently to Thorntons PLC on behalf of Biffa.
With such crippling fines being handed out by the ICO for data loss, Thorntons can rest easily knowing their redundant IT assets were collected by an ADISA certified asset disposal company who have specialised in this field for well over a decade. The service included secure collection with vetted staff, complete online tracking for every movement of each asset, comprehensive asset listing, complete data sanitisation and full identity removal. To complete the process all equipment that has reached its end of life is fully recycled in accordance with WEEE Regulations
