Scrubb.IT data security is handled by Tech Dump, an R2 Certified Electronics Recycler. Tech Dump follows a strict chain of custody from when electronics reach our facility. While we guarantee data will be destroyed through either an electronic wipe or physical destruction, some of our partners require a Certificate of Destruction (a COD) or a Certificate of Sanitization (a COS) for their hard drives, and verification of their destruction either through physical destruction or electronic wiping.
So much of the talk surrounding data security centers around hackers, but let’s not forget about the hardware side of things. What happens when the old devices that your team uses every day like laptops and cellphones get upgraded? Not to mention servers, scanners, and copier equipment.
All of these business tools contain data, and usually company markings, that need to be handled properly so that you don’t end up with a data security disaster! It happens — and it is 100% preventable.
Some companies are vulnerable in assuming that they removed all of the hard drives. This can seem simple when a laptop has one hard drive, but what about servers that have multiple drives or printers and scanners that hold data? Or cellphones? Even experienced IT teams can miss hidden data. Tech Dump guarantees data security for all data bearing devices that we handle.
