Certified secure Hard Drive Destruction DiskShred

Option 1 – Asset Register

We offer a bespoke asset tracking service giving you a complete record of destruction that substantiates what was shredded, when and by whom. The information is captured via our hand-held scanners and is securely stored in our bespoke asset tracking system and forms part of the final asset register provided to each customer. A certificate of destruction is also included with the asset register. This level of detail is often required by auditors.

Option 2 – CCTV with Time/Date Stamp

Our vehicles are equipped with CCTV cameras so we can provide you with digital evidence of how and when your disks are destroyed. Three cameras provide every angle of the process including all the access areas to the vehicle so you know that all of your data has been securely destroyed. You will receive the CCTV footage on a USB pen drive which will be encrypted with a password – that will be emailed to you. The CCTV footage is searchable by the hard drive serial number: This feature is available to those customers who request Asset Tracking/Serial Number Capture of the media. As each item is scanned to the shredder, the recording is stamped with the information serial number and included within the film. This allows you to search for a part of the recording using this number, date or time giving you the ability to scroll to a specific hard drive being shredded. The CCTV option provides you with extra peace of mind as it is additional evidence for auditing purposes. It also eradicates the need for staff to witness and monitor the shredding operation.

Option 3 – Hard Drive Removal

You may need to remove hard drives from your PCs, laptops or servers before shredding. No problem, our teams are fully trained to take care of that on site.

Option 4 – WEEE Disposal

We can also remove your empty PCs, laptops or servers at the same time, giving you a one-stop-shop.
