Category: Data destruction
26 July, 2012
With a new data protection framework coming into effect in 2013, businesses really need to work hard to ensure that data deletion policies are watertight.
Many firms have succeeded in improving general data security following a spate of hacks, breaches and losses.
However, when it comes to data erasure, many firms are still struggling to tackle their burgeoning data assets and are unaware that some files could still be retrieved from computers that appeared to be wiped.
Often devices that seem like they would not contain any data, such as intelligent printers and VOIP phones, hold internal information, such as contact details and documents that may be sensitive, especially in the wrong hands.
Firms need to ensure that all files are completely destroyed before recycling or selling any old or unwanted equipment, unless they want to find themselves in hot water with regulators or face damage to their reputation.
