How We Ensure Data Security

We are sometimes asked how we ensure data security throughout the process, which is why we have built accountability and clear documentation into our data sanitisation service. You can rest assured that at every stage your data is handled safely, securely and in compliance with relevant legislation. Furthermore, we provide all the documentation to prove it.

Secure Off-site Facility

From the moment your IT equipment is collected, to when it is processed in our secure Derby facility, to when it is recycled, each item is individually tracked through our IT asset management system:

  • Satellite tracked collection vehicles, directly owned by Absolute IT AD
  • Security cleared, professional engineers
  • Chain of custody trial, with documentation for each stage
  • Individual tracking by item serial number
  • Removal and secure disposal of asset tags
  • Certificate to prove destruction/data sanitisation for each item
  • Eco-friendly disposal of waste products

Secure Mobile Facility

For your convenience and to remove all risk of a security breach while in transit, we provide a state-of-the-art mobile facility that can sanitise your data. Our mobile unit is fully equipped to destroy HDD's and other electronic devices, shred paper documents and sanitise IT equipment using Blancco software.

  • Document shredding up to security level three
  • Data Protection Act 1998 compliance
  • BSEN15713: 2009 security shredding standards
  • Destruction certificate for auditing purposes
  • Photographic proof of destruction if required
  • GPS tracking on each mobile unit
  • Vehicles protected by twelve on-board CCTV cameras, with customer link so you can observe the process in real-time.

Secure Disposal

Our data sanitisation service ensures that your waste material is disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner. We place a great emphasis on recycling and sustainability for both paper and electronic media:

Absolute IT AD has:

  • E-waste recycling permit
  • Waste carrier licence
  • ISO9001 accreditation

Each action is covered by either a Data Disposal Certificate or a Certificate of Destruction. All items we dispose of are covered by a Full Asset Report, which is issued to you at the end of the process.
